Apple Cider Vinegar is a common kitchen ingredient which has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. Its powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties also make it the perfect ingredient for our Pure Sole Hoof Mud and Pure Sole Hoof Cleanse. Both of these products were designed to combat common hoof ailments such as thrush and white line disease. Thrush is a common bacterial and/or fungal infection that thrives in the horses frog, specifically along the collateral groves and central sulcus. White line disease is typically a fungal infection of the inner hoof wall, although bacteria can be involved too. ACV helps to eliminate bacteria and/or fungus invading the hoof and works as a powerful preventative as well, making it an important ingredient in our Pure Sole Hoof Mud and Pure Sole Hoof Cleanse.
