Hi everyone,
I want to foal my quarter horse x Arabian mare. She has seedy toe and gets a bit sore. Will my foal get seedy toe and have the same foot problems as my mare? I don't think the problem is genetic, I think her first owners didn't look after her promptly and therefore she now has some problems. I am treating the seedy toe with Iodine and it is clearing up. Any answers to my question would be appreciated very much.

I'm sure that some foot problems are genetic, but I don't think that seedy toe in particular is.

Seedy toe is Cavitation in the distal hoof wall, usually dorsally, involving the stratum internum and/or stratum medium. Commonly seen as widening of the sole wall junction

Jennifer, there was another post someplace about seedy toe... don't feel bad I had no clue what the heck it was. "cavitation"in the webster dictionary is "the formation of cavities in an organ or tissue especially in disease ". Don't know if that helps to explain Deena's post. I don't totally understand the "seedy toe" thing yet. Will have to do some more research. The farrier that we have used for many years is a old school farrier, so he has never used techinical terms. We have had to treat a horse with abscesses before. Alot of times we will us idione or baitaidine(sp) or formaldhyde to kill any infection. Soaking in epson salt is good too. Take a freezer ziplock bag put your soaking solution in it, just enough, with some cotton balls(use real cotton balls they adsorb better)put the horse hoof in it and use vet wrap to strap the bag on around the ankle. The horse can wall with the bag on for a real long time without it falling apart. It beats trying to soak a foot in a bucket!

Kim,

What an awesome idea! I have spent too much money on a pair of Davis soaking boots for a stubborn case of thrush. Could have saved some money by using vet wrap and the solution the vet gave me. Any way, hadn't heard of seedy toe before and was cruzing the site. Thanks for BOTH definitions Kim, and Deena.

Beth the silver gene is a color gene. What is the base color of your stallion?

cathy...my stallion is a buckskin, we thought he had paint in him but after looking a his papers and talking to the nfqha we couldnt find paint anywhere. So the vet was coming out to give one of my mare's a look over and she looked at him.
