    IMG_0248.JPG IMG_0249.JPG So Harry horse has had seedy toe for quite some time now. My farrier has been great and we are slowly getting on top of it. I have been using iodine twice weekly to try and kill it off but was wondering if anyone else had used something different or more affective? Any tips or tricks much appreciated, thank you.

    it looks really good, not badly infected at all
    i would continue to do what you are doing
    and maybe add some supplements to encourage hoof growth like extra zinc, biotin, methionine and gelatin
    most important is just keeping it clean and dry
