Dampness can Lead to Fungus in the Hoof

White Line Disease in a Horse 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.

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.
