I am very thankful that Chris Richardson with The Holistic Horse helped me find a preventive treatment for my personal horse Kandy who suffered from constant/frequent hoof abscesses. Since before I owned her she had been suffering from this, at her worse time she had 4 abscesses in 1 month’s time. Frustrated with the only answer from the veterinary world being shoes or hoof surgeries I tried shoeing her one time (being a barefoot hoof practitioner myself anyone could imagine how desperate I was). Well not to my surprise she had another abscess already brewing so I was unable to nail. While waiting for the abscess to clear out, I added the Bentonite clay to her daily diet. Since then while on the daily clay, she only had one small abscess that I’m sure was already brewing which lasted a fraction of the normal duration. With success I highly recommend daily clay to all my clients dealing with reoccurring hoof abscess. I believe hoof abscess are vastly misunderstood and this natural medicine will help many horses.
