  1. I had an episode of white line disease this fall with my horse, this video explained everything the same as my vet and farrier explained, my horse actually required a resection, but he is doing well, all the infected tissue was removed. Great video, thanks.

  2. Thank you for a good video. I am glad the farrier, explained everything, and even to the fact the horse, was moving around a bit, because he was a young horse.

  3. My next questions is, should you be sealing that off with either a 7% iodine solution or some thrush buster to make sure nothing else starts up?
