Healing White Line Disease with Solar Support

Using Solar Support to Aid Healing of White Line Disease by Tab Pigg Dampness can Lead to Fungus in the Hoof No matter the season, anytime wet conditions are present, bacteria and fungus can get trapped in a horse’s hoof wall. Similar to human toenails, once fungus and bacteria have set in, it’s very difficult to conquer. This combination of pathogens in the hoof wall is a recipe for White Line Disease. The Anatomy of White Line Disease When looking at the bottom of a horse’s hoof, there is a white line that divides the outside of the hoof wall and the sole. This part of the hoof is also known as stratum internum, which is the innermost part of the hoof wall, and attaches the wall to the underlying soft tissue. When bacteria and fungus get trapped within this area, the white line becomes wider as it separates, thus the name of this condition – White Line Disease. Depending on the severity, the horse can become lame because the infection causes the hoof wall to deteriorate. When a hoof is already unhealthy or compromised in any way, it’s more prone to infection. Once White Line Disease has set in, […]

Horse hooves sounds from electric car

New electric car with “horse hoof” sound effects The car is as cute as a toy pony and makes the sound of horse hooves on pavement to alert people. I love my electric golf cart and I do get the horse hoof sounds from my real ponies when they run besides it going down the gravel road to my mother’s pasture, but I would love to see this car put info action on America city streets. The U.S. really needs a good electric car to help with air and sound pollution and to cut the cost of travel due to the high cost of gasoline. I love this car’s tiny size but then I am attracted to ponies. For many horse people that ride huge warmbloods and fat-butt quarterhorses this car may take some getting use to. At 41 miles per hour it is as fast as a thoroughbred horse galloping, but it is

The foaling of a horse business

How a new equine business is born from noticing a hoof problem In July of 2006 Bryan Tilghman contacted me about purchasing a horse logo design for a horse hoof product he was working on marketing. The product idea seemed sound to me and I was impressed with the fact that he seemed to have done his homework by researching the available product options and markets. Too many people contact me wanting to start some kind of horse business, but they haven’t done ANY research at all. I have even turned down logo clients telling them to rethink their marketing plan (like make one in the first place) and then get back with me. The birth of a business idea Bryan’s didn’t start out to design a new horse product or make a horse business. But one day he happened to observe a friend struggle to concoct a home-made bandage for his horse’s sore hoof using some cardboard, baby diapers, and the handyman’s best friend – silver duct tape. The owner loved his horse and was willing to build this bumbling hoof bandage twice a day! Well Bryan thought there had to be a better way and wondered how many […]
