Hoofcare and Lameness presents: Connemara hoof wall syndrome

Apparently, I may need to be watching out for this! Pippa chipped off some hoof wall on the front of her front hooves during our trailer loading debaucle, and apparently there's a whole study going on about hoof wall separation syndrome in Connemara ponies. Most people are also familiar with how crappy thoroughbred feet can be, and given that Pippa is a cross between these two, I may need to pay close attention to the maintenance of her feet! A blog post by Fran Jurga referencing the study and its findings can be found here:, and there is also a blog completely about the syndrome and the ongoing related studies that can be found here:
