Hoofcare for Rescue Cases

Dealing with horse rescue can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes, horses are surrendered in good condition, ready to go to a new home, but more often than not, the horses have less than ideal soundness and/or health issues that require rehabilitation. If you want a crash course in every hoof issue that you could encounter, spend some time at a local rescue that sees a lot of cases come in – you will be sure to see a lot of various hoof problems!

Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue is a rescue based out of West Virginia that works with all kinds of cases. I started following them a while ago and noticed they have a passion for educating about proper nutrition, proper hoofcare, and other aspects of horsekeeping. I was really impressed with the information they shared, so I reached out to see if they would be interested in a podcast interview, talking about hoofcare for rescue horses.

In this episode, HoP founder Tinia Creamer and social media coordinator Suzanna Johnson discuss everything from neglect/”Lack of Farrier” disease, to laminitis, nutrition, grazing safety, and more.
