Hoof Injuries

Action Point: Make sure that everyone understands hoof injuries and penetrations.

Rationale: Unfortunately, at our farm, it is an old working farm, and its inevitable that old pieces of nails, glass and parts of machinery will come to the surface as the horses move it around. Making sure that the people at the farm know how to spot an injury and look for a penetration is important. They need to know the safety procedures, and when to pull something out of the foot, or when to leave it and call the vet.
