What is Thrush?
Thrush is a bacterial infection of the frog (the tender inside bottom) of the hoof. It is caused when horses stand in manure, mud, or moist bedding and the frog is not cleaned thoroughly. Thrush appears as a foul-smelling, black, clay-like material in the area surrounding the frog. Thrush is caused by infections with anaerobic bacteria (bacteria that thrive when no oxygen is present). They eat away at the tissues of the frog, leaving blackish ooze on the surface.
What is White Line Disease?
White Line Disease is breakdown of the protein in the inner hoof wall by bacteria and fungi. It is often associated with hoof injuries that allow entrance of these microorganisms. White Line Disease is more common in humid conditions and may be related to improper hoof trimming. The disease starts with powdery, chalky area located along the junction of the hoof wall and sole (the white line); then causes a separation of the wall and sole. It causes soreness and abnormal growth of the hoof wall.
