Hoove Health Is Important!

Horse Hoove Health

Here at EquiGrids, we are big advocates for maintaining your horse’s hoove health. After all the hooves are what keeps your horse walking, if their hoove health deteriorates then it will mean higher vet bills, possibly reducing the horse’s life span and just making its life overall a lot more difficult than it needs to be.

This is where EquiGrids reinforcement grids come into play. With the use of our grids, you can prevent your horses from developing mud fever.

Mud Fever

The main cause of mud fever stems from forcing your horse to walk through deep dirty mud where bacteria and parasites are prone to live, this will inevitably weaken your horse’s immune system and give it thinner skin from the abrasiveness of the mud. You never know what’s lying on the ground.

Another good reason to use our grids is simply to keep your horses out of the constant coldness of the ground surface mud. If you were to keep your horses in the mud all day long for days at a time, it will reduce the horse’s body temperature. In turn, lowers the blood circulation rate around your horse, which can result in your horse cramping up when being taken out which could result in injury for yourself or your poor horse.

There is a plethora of other reasons why maintaining hoove health is incredibly important. Few of them have been presented, if you would like to find out more, please check our social media pages and see what you think. We look forward to seeing you become a part of the EquiGrids family!
