Horse hoof care in West Virginia is important to your equines well being. Although six to eight weeks is the average, there is no standard interval for trimming and shoeing. Your farrier may be correcting a problem such as under-run heels, a club foot, or flare in the hoof wall, which may require a shorter interval. Your horse’s performance will be impacted by their hoof health, so assure they are on a regular visit from your farrier.
A veterinarian visit may be part of horse health care in West Virginia. Did you know what it takes for your vet to care for your equines? A bachelor's degree, an internship, a veterinary medicine degree, a license, and 3-4 years of internship in a specialty. If your horse is healthy, sound and happy, thank your veterinarian.
