"Works very well"
I had a horse come in with severely contracted heels and thrush all the way up inside the the hoof. He was heel sore, walked on his toes and in a lot of pain. This was the ONLY thrush treatment that worked on him since it was so deep it went into the live tissue. Sprinkle it all over the frog, into the central sulcus (frog cleft) and the sides of the thrush push it in deep with a hoof pick every day or 2. As long as your trimmer keeps the toes backed to the white line he'll start walking on his heels again instead of landing toe first and his thrush will clear up. This absorbs deep into the tissue and only kills thrush, not live tissue like the purple stuff. Since then we've also started soaking with White Lighting in either an old tractor trailer tire tube or dry bag for kayaking and that has helped immensely as well with other horses with thrush. In wet mucky seasons we will dust this on weekly and that kills thrush before it has a chance to set in. Excellent product. Hundreds of Abchoofcare and facebook barefoot users recommmend as well. Though we shoe if needed and have great luck with it too.
