Re: [RC] Horse's Feet - Barbara McCrary

A horse can develop hoof rings from 1) Illness (usually accompanied by a
fever), 2) Abrupt change in feed, 3) Standing in mud all winter, 4) Road
founder, and possibly a few other "traumatic" incidents.

My horse also has rings around his hoofs on both his front feet.  When we
did Alma (I'm in SA) the vet asked if my horse had been sick in the last
two
months.  He said that the hoof showed him the horse was sick.  I have
never
heard this before, is it true?  Howard (?) called it a 'stress ring', but
there was nothing new with him appart that we started doing LSD and road
work.  He always wears shoes and the program is the same that I have been
doing since 2001.  Can anyone give some insight please?
