Nail bind / nail prick
Foot problems are a common cause of lameness in the horse, accounting for 90% of all forelimb lameness problems. However, the importance of meticulous care of horses feet is often overlooked by owners. Neglected feet can develop many conditions which, if left untreated, can result in severe lameness with subsequent loss of use of your horse. Maintaining the hooves in good condition with the help of your farrier/hoof care practitioner is of primary importance in the overall health and welfare of your horse.
