Hoof Trimming: For summer 2017, I am limiting my schedule to be able to ride and spend time with my family so I am not taking any new clients currently. I will be starting a waiting list if anyone is interested in an opening should one come available. I will still be available to fit boots for non-clients on a one-time basis.
I am still available for giving presentations on Natural Hoof Care to groups such as 4-H and Pony Clubs, Trail Rider Associations or just groups of eager-to-learn horse owners. Please contact me for rates and see my events page for upcoming talks you might be interested in!
I accept payment by cash, personal check or credit card!
Payment is due at the time of service for first-time clients. I will bill you after the first trim, if necessary, and then the payment is due within 10 days of service.
Red Horse Products - Artimud or Field Paste. I keep both of these in stock!
Apple Cider Vinegar: 1/2 and 1/2 either shallow soaks or in a spray bottle applied once weekly as a preventative measure. Most of us already have this on hand!
"Pete's Goo" - can be made yourself! equal parts clotrimizol, triple antibiotic ointment +pain relief and diaper rash ointment
Cow Mastitis medication - Tomorrow, Today or Albadry are some of the names this goes by (works very well for deep sulcus infections) Can be ordered or found at most farm supply stores in the bovine section.
Hoof Powder - Ideal for wet environments and for use with hoof boots
*Note - I avoid any products that contain formadahyde or that are potentially causitic! Thrush infections can be very painful to your horse so you don't want to use anything on a potential wound that would hurt or that will kill good tissue along with the bad.
Here are some of the thrush and abscess remedies that I have available for purchase:
Here are the booting options I offer from Easycare. On the left are the Easyshoe and the Glove Glue on shells. On the right are the boots that I have in stock for sale - all boots come with a warranty and custom fitting options. (There is always a possibility that I have the boots you are looking for used as well for a discounted price. I cannot guarantee the availability of used products but I do accept boots in good shape for trade-in value!)
