How to Evaluate a Horse for Equinell™

We want you to succeed. This will help you figure out if your horse needs Equinell™.

First, stand your horse on a hard surface, in good light. Walk around behind, and look at the heel on each foot. Can you see the cleft in the middle of the frog from behind? If yes, there is a problem.

Pick up a hoof, and clean it carefully. Look at the frog. The groove in the center of the frog should have a solid, smooth bottom. If the bottom is too deep to see, or if the groove is ragged, there is a problem. Be gentle here, especially if the crevice splits the heel. These can be very painful!

The tissue color should be easy to see, especially after trimming. If there are black areas there COULD BE a problem. Frogs darken over time. If the tissue is smooth, rubbery and too firm to move with your bare fingers, there is not a problem. Blackened areas, holes, or soft frogs indicate a problem.

Check the collateral grooves (on either side of the frog). These should be non tender and free from drainage, or black staining. The bottom should be smooth and solid.

Does the hoof have an unpleasant smell?

Now examine the sole. The sole should be cupped, at least a little. A dropped sole may indicate past founder. This is a problem that Equinell™ cannot help with directly, but it can help with some of the problems that a dropped sole can cause.

Check for bruises and soft spots. Equinell™ can harden the sole, and make it harder to bruise. It can help while holes grow out. In general, it cannot prevent bruises or sterile abscesses, but it can make them more comfortable, and return the sole to a more normal state while they grow out.

Examine the white line. Holes, wide spots or cracks indicate a problem. Repeated abscesses indicate a problem.

Now, set the foot down and look at the hoof wall. Are there cracks? A crack can happen when the coronary band is damaged, the horse stamps his feet to remove flies, or when the heel contracts. This is a common cause of shallow cracking, and definitely indicates a problem.

When you walk the horse across gravel, is he tender? Most horses will flinch if they step hard on a sharp stone, but gimping over gravel is definitely not normal.

"Imari was gradually losing weight... She began to lie down to sleep, more and more. Finally she was lying down three times to sleep, on bad days. I mixed eight ounces of shampoo, which I applied dry.

Two months into treatment, I walked towards her with a halter and lead. Giggling wickedly, she thundered out of the barn."

"We were called by some friends who had found him and couldn't bear to leave him to die. His feet were in terrible condition...

We set to work, carefully swabbing the skin with hoof oil. Three days later we were delighted to find a much happier horse..."

"About the third week, I came in to find one of the horses cross tied, owner in tears. They had tried everything they knew to try, and he was still lame.

I had a couple of vials of Charlie's formula in the car. I painted his feet, and left a couple of vials. Four days later his feet were non tender, dry, and they seemed to give him no problem when he was under saddle."

I just sent some photos of Toby. His feathers are growing back wonderfully.

It blows my mind. He is so much more comfortable now. I only hope we can get a lifetime supply! I don't think I can live without it now.

Imari ... was nearing the end of her life. Her death was near, and inevitable, or so I thought.

After Marlene began treating Imari, it was as if she had been given a dip in the fountain of youth. She is sound and cantering for fun. This is an amazing product. Truly a gift to the horse world.

Amor Reto our 25 yr old Hanoverian's hooves were horrendous before Equinell hoof oil treatments. After the 1st treatment his hooves were visibly better. After four treatments inside and out the fungus has exponentially subsided, and his frog has shown regrowth and he's much more comfortable.

Einan came to Legacy Farm with an advanced case of thrush. He was noticeably uncomfortable. After four Equinell hoof oil treatments the smell has vanished there is no more exubale and he is much more willing to let us work on his hooves.
