Terri L.
This is an amazing, great product !! Worked quickly for my horses. After using all the other thrush products without improvements. I saw the videos on Facebook and purchased it.  Almost overnight results. They started giving me their feet to apply. Thank you Four Oaks for posting the video. I use it as needed now.

Terri L.
Great product. Really gets the thrush problem under control. Love your videos. They really explain things I did not realize before.

Kelli H.
I not only use it for my horse’s sulcus thrush (now as a maintenance/preventative), I also use it on the places where he develops/gets scratches. He is prone to both conditions – and I find if I use this product, I can almost get away with minimal breakouts/episodes, versus the severe outbreak he had once I bought him. Once or twice a week (depending on humidity or rain forecast) is all he needs now. I tried other products, and nothing works as well as this!

Amanda B.
Hands down, THE BEST STUFF!!! AND IT WORKS!!

Sarah H. C.
Love this product, have been using it on my boy for at least a year now and it’s kept the thrush at bay, he had mushy heel bulbs prior from standing in mud, etc and since using this his feet have cleared up so nicely. Forever customer ❤️

Anne M.P.
Love this stuff ! Tried everything and came across this. Watch the video… within 3 days you could feel the difference in her heels. Finally getting her comfortable and healed up.

I tried NT powder & it was everything & more they claim & show in the videos! The customer service was personal & professional! I’ll continue to use it once a week for maintenance. I never thought my Roy’s hoofs could be this healthy!! Great product!

Linda K. M.
Best thrush remedy I’ve ever used! We live in So Wisconsin- so damp here so definitely a product to always have on hand.

Tammy C.
Worked absolutely awesome on my horse and quick as well!!! Great product!!!

Hiromi M.
Thank you for posting these pro tips. It has been very helpful. First, let me let it be known I am Not blaming my farrier. My horse started parking out on all 4 feet. He looked like he was trying to be Superman. I knew this was not good. He also would stand and pull the dirt so that he had his heels lifted and his toes were down. I had laterals done on all 4 feet but it did not show any white line pockets and his angles were good and his hooves were balanced. (We just went through a year of rehab for his ft SDFT injury. So seeing him do this made my heart drop.) After your tips and multiple FB ads, I tried to take a look at the back of his hoofs. Unfortunately, some of the products the farriers use these days cover the back of the heel. ( Pads, dental molding, the pour-in pads etc) So I pulled it back/ off the heel to see if I could “see” anything.

To my surprise, all 4 hooves had heel cracks! He needs front shoes, so hinds were removed and the fronts replaced but without all the extra stuff so I could treat and visually inspect the bottom of his hooves. So glad I did. It’s been 3 weeks and they are healing, not completely yet but he no longer parks out, and only occasionally will you see him with his hind heels up as he rests at night. I could have saved $$$ in vet bills trying to figure out what was going on if only I had the knowledge to just pull that stuff off his heels and look!

So thank you, thank you, thank you, for all the posts on my FB page. It really has saved us!!!

Great product! Just started using it and I’ve seen a huge difference in just Two days !!

Kristina W.
I am in the New England area and it’s wet and muddy. Love this product! Has made a huge difference! The stick idea is perfect! Thank you!

Colett S.
When I bought my horse one year ago he had really bad contracted heals along with deep sulcus grooves from thrush. He was barefoot. With proper diet and a great farrier if had little progress. I bought this product and after 4 days have seen better progress than over the past year with an amazing farrier. Sometimes the horse needs more than just a good farrier. So glad I found this product. I can’t wait to see how he progresses. Already more sound with just a few days of treatment. Thank you, Colett.

Dawn K.
Thank you Four Oaks Farm Products !!! I never knew this [Re: sulcus thrush and the Heel crack connection]   Not once has a Farrier mentioned this and my horses have had thrush and cracks forever, nothing has helped it ,I now have a fantastic Farrier and have purchased this product. 3 weeks and almost healed. I’m amazed at how it works thanks for the information

Connie M.
I never post on products but the feed store was out of my normal brand and I tried this. What a crazy difference in one week. My horse’s feet look totally different. I am so impressed with this product and easy to use.

Sue C.
This is absolutely the best product for Thrush and hoof care. I have used it for 15 years and always keep it on hand.

Trese V.
Great product. Highly recommend it. My mare is so much better after years of dealing with thrush and laminitis. Veterinarians totally missed it. Took X-rays and found nothing. Started treatment with this product and saw improvement in a week’s time.

Reid E
I didn’t take pictures, but I just got a TB gelding who has very bad thrush from the ice storm we had here in Texas. I applied No Thrush Powder on his feet and turned him back out into his still-wet pasture not expecting it to really do anything. Later I pulled him out and NO smell! The smell was so bad before when he stood on concrete you could just smell the thrush! I will never ever ever waste money on any other thrush product!

Erin O.
My absolute FAVORITE product that I can’t live without!!! Especially this time a year in Kentucky, it is a lifesaver. Best part? IT ACTUALLY WORKS! AND NO BLUE-STAINED HANDS! Not a sponsored review, just words from a happy customer:)

Marcii R.
For any of you that might not be sure about this product, I’m telling you from experience. It’s really great! You just need to make sure you’re diligent about using it correctly.

I wasn’t sure if it would work on my mare’s heel crack, but by using it steadily, her heel crack is almost healed. Amazing stuff.

Just wanted to post an update on Irma! Below are photos from today. I found a fantastic new farrier, she had her trim today and you can really see the incredible improvement since my last photo! Four Oaks Farm Products this is amazing!

Tonya C.
We absolutely love this product and have used it and seen real results and sulcus thrush is gone.. No Thrush Powder will always be a staple in our barn for sure… I also used this on my horse’s mane where she had a couple of bumps and was rubbing and itching her hair off and was bald. Within days the bumps were fading and within a week her hair was growing back and no more rubbing…What I would like to know if I could try it on is the skin between her teats/udders as she gets so much moisture and is super itchy would love to know if this might help there… I may just go ahead and give it a try

Laurie D.
My rescue mare suffered from the worst case of thrush I’ve ever seen. Full deep cracks all way up and through her sulcus in all four feet. I treated her with liquid thrush busters for months with little progress. Why would you put a liquid in something you’re trying to dry out? The answer and the cure came with “NO THRUSH” Powder!! All four feet dried out in just a few days and totally healed with no cracks in about one month! I’ll never use anything else! Thank you NO THRUSH!!

Julia Y.L.
My local shop sells this, I love it, have some in my tack trunk

Barbara A.C.
This product will always be in my barn. During the muddy season, I use it as a preventative. When I took ownership of my horse several years ago, he had horrendous sulcus thrush and the hoof pick went in all the way. I used No Thrush for 3 months and he has never had thrush again.

Jen M.
Love love love this product!!! Been using it for some time now and am impressed with it. Trust me I tried different ones and last year I started using no Thrush and I will never buy anything else for my girl. It’s also great for rain-rot.   Definitely more then a 5 star

Kaylana M. [RE: Dust On Wound Powder]
Question: what is the difference between the NT and the dust on wound powder? My old 29-year-old gelding cut his eyelid on the top of the socket during the terrible blizzard we had before Christmas. We feared the worst – frostbite, eye damage… we put on the wound powder and waited. Miraculously it has completely healed!! It went through the healing process stated above. We are shocked every time he greets me at the gate. Thank you, Four Oaks!!~ a very happy customer

Kathy R.
I just want to say, if I could give NO THRUSH a million stars, I would! My 5 yo mare quite literally overnight went from sound to 3-legged lame. She had just been trimmed the day prior and my farrier said NOTHING about the condition of her right frog. I thought it looked different but assumed if there was any issue, my farrier would’ve addressed it right away. She even came out when I contacted her about her sudden onset of lameness, not a word. My vet came out the same day and said her frog is very soft and there appears to be a hole in it. We did x-rays, nerve blocks etc. I looked at her hoof that night and saw the hole my vet was talking about and also noticed this awful huge and obviously very deep Crack down the center of her frog that went all the way to her heel bulbs. there was also a Crack to the left and right of this crack. I looked at her left and compared both to a photo of a healthy frog. The Left looked great, the right was a complete mess. my mom had previously told me about No Thrush Powder and how she loved it and used it as a preventative for thrush. I started researching what this crack could be and quickly found out what a sulcus crack is and sulcus thrush, thanks to the Four Oaks informative website. I went out the next day, bought a bottle, and immediately began applying it twice a day. This was just 5 days ago! I’m posting before and after photos, the top is right before her first application and the bottom is today, just 5 days later. it’s almost unbelievable the difference and the improvement in just 5 days! I will continue twice a day until her frog is fully regrown and healed and thereafter as a preventative! If you’re on the fence and unsure about this product, don’t be. Look no further. It’s quite literally a miracle in a bottle! Thank you so much, Four Oaks!

After years, and I mean years of struggling to control the thrush and the progression of the opening in the sulcus my horse is finally healed. It took lots of No Thrush and a good farrier to finally close the opening in the bulbs. Several times I gave up but always went back to using No Thrush.

Amanda S.V.
So far I am halfway done with my 1st bottle and it definitely is helping! I like that it is a powder and gets in all the cracks

It works! Take it from a 45 yr horse owner! (NT)

Best treatment ever!!!!

Have to say I had 3 horses with thrush. One so bad that she was lame. Tried everything out there to no avail. Your No Thrush Powder worked and the super deep cracks in her heels have filled in.  Great stuff.

Stephanie D.
This product is amazing! BUT it can take time to work! My horse’s foot was so bad, bean stubble from the field penetrated the frog area almost to the bursa! (X-ray verified) I started this product and now it’s night and day difference and he’s SOUND! I will always have this product in my barn!

Tammy Cassiday-B.
This product really works. I was skeptical, but the frog is closing up.

Christine H.
Ok, I’m a believer!!! 2 weeks ago I needed more liniment for my mare and when ordering I decided what the heck toss in the small trial size of the No Thrush Powder…after all I’ve been battling some heel cracks for a long time what could it hurt to try? I’ve already tried many other things…   Okay, after applying every day since it arrived the heel cracks are starting to truly dry up!!!! So tonight I went ahead and ordered the big bottle! Not going to be out of it ever again!

[RE: Natural Release Muscle & Joint]
Fast shipping, amazing product! Used it on my old rescue who was severely foundered before I got him. He showed immediate relief. Put some gel on my wrist that has a plate and screws that were crushed several years ago and got relief in about 3 minutes. Will be ordering more for my husband’s worn-out spine and for my bad knee. Wonderful products! Thank you for the mints, too!

This product is a game changer. I am finally getting a hold of this Sulcus heal thrush. The thrush is gone and everything is all dry. His heals are hard now. It is now filling in. Love that you liked my tongue depressor idea.

This is an Amazing Awesome product!! We moved & changed climates and our poor horses feet reacted terribly. This product was a Serious Game Changer and started clearing everything up. Had to stay after it Every Day but what an Amazing job No Thrush Powder did for us and our horses!! We do the weekly dusting now as a preventative and have everything under control. I’ll Never be without it and HIGHLY recommend it!! Ordering some more now.

Love this product. So glad it is all-natural. Got rid of my other thrush products that were not all natural and didn’t work as good as No Thrush Powder.

I love this product! It has worked great healing some stubborn thrush pockets on my horses. I’ve even started using it on my Boer show goats when they develop a little bit of hoof rot or wall separation. It has worked wonders on the goats’ hooves as well.

I will never use any other thrust products again. This one works!! When nothing else did

Debbie H. [RE: NT Canine]
I ordered and this stuff works. I also got the NT Canine Powder for hot spots. My dog is allergic to everything and has been super itchy with bright red irritated skin. Using the NT Canine Powder she has been able to quit scratching and I was able to take her off of Benadryl.

Karin H.
Four Oaks Farm Products we discovered our gelding had sulcus thrush & probably has had it for years. I used the No Thrush powder at the recommendation of our equine body worker and it has cleared it up & closed the crack. We’re now able to do preventive maintenance. It really is a great product!

DANGER…A HEEL CRACK is a WARNING SIGN – Thrush Alert!

DANGER…A HEEL CRACK is a WARNING SIGN – Thrush Alert!

Hi, I’m Heath Kizzier, VP of Four Oaks Farm Sport Horse Rehabilitation and Reconditioning Centre, and Four Oaks Products. The cover photo above is the same horse Before / after treatment with No Thrush Powder  (AKA NT DRY in Canada and EU) The dimple in the heel on the right is what we want. Let’s look at another before / after example below. These were provided by Josephine Trott, PhD UC Davis during a clinical trial of No Thrush powder, [Published in the Horse’s Hoof Magazine, Issue 41- Winter Issue 2010]

NO THRUSH Powder Photo Journal – 37 Days Total

 Heel_Crack_Healed

 

 

 

 

Below we will discuss how to fix this, but first, let’s discuss what a heel crack (Sulcus Crack) is:

A “heel crack” (an opening into the sulcus) is the number one warning sign of thrush. These cracks are not natural. In fact, they are wounds created by bacteria as it seeks a way to get inside the foot. The tissue between the heel bulbs is soft and pliable, so the bacterium burrows in and creates a breeding ground. This breeding ground is warm and moist inside, so until we completely eliminate the crack, we should expect a thrush invasion at least 3-4 times per year.

sulcus_thrush_No_thrush

Normally people only treat for thrush when they see and smell the “black goo.” But with sulcus thrush (thrush inside the crack) you can’t see or smell the goo – so you literally don’t know it’s in there.  Often, though, what you do know is that your horse is mysteriously going “off” several times a year. It “comes and goes.”  Perhaps you start treating muscles, hocks, and stifles, but the horse is still just… off!

In the case of sulcus thrush, the horse is Off because his heel is infected and he is walking with a toe-first landing. He can’t land on his heel. If he is a barrel horse or jumper, (or any sport horse), he absolutely can not perform at his best because he can’t properly plant his foot in the sand.

The result of toe-first landing???

That barrel horse will take wide crow-hopping turns, ruining your time. The racing thoroughbred must shorten his stride to avoid the pain (not good in a race!).  The worst scenario is for jumpers and eventers.  Every time that horse takes a jump he will take extreme impact on an improperly angled foot. That is guaranteed to cause soft tissue damage in his legs and back. At our Sport Horse Rehabilitation Centre we’ve seen dozens of incredible Jumpers lose their career due to this.

The Good News: There is a solution. We can help regrow the heel back to its healthy (closed) state with NO THRUSH / NT DRY Powder. 

sulcus_thrush_no_thrushBefore we start the “Product Talk,” let’s discuss exactly what occurs inside the Heel Crack

WHY ARE HEEL CRACKS THE PRIME CAUSE OF RECURRING THRUSH?

Simple answer… Because when we horse owners no longer see the black goo we stop treating. We think we have beaten back the thrush and we move on to other things.  But the truth is, that was a temporary fix because tomorrow a whole new host of bacteria will find its way back in there. There is no way around it. Then, when moisture is introduced via rain, urine, or even water bucket slop-over, thrush has everything it needs to restart the infection process.

WARNING:  If you have been using a liquid thrush product, whether you buy it or make it yourself (ie: Bleach, peroxide, alcohol, or vineger) be sure to research the ingredients. If it is caustic, do not use it on sulcus thrush. The term “Caustic” means that the PH level is excessively high or low. If it is caustic it will, of course, kill bacteria – however, it also damages live tissue. EX: Bleach, even a 10% solution, absolutely destroys open tissue.

HOW DO WE REGROW THE HEEL CRACK?

Photos provided USDF Gold Medal Winner, Kiersten Main. 30 day total NT use.

Now we are going to discuss how to use NO THRUSH ® Powder ( “NT DRY” in Canada) to solve this problem and get from point A – to – Z.

STEP 1. (This will work in all weather conditions, so don’t wait, thinking that a powder won’t do it’s job. It will. )

  • Clean the foot with your pick. If the footing is damp, use a rag to wipe off any excess moisture.
  • MOST IMPORTANT: Puff plenty of powder into the heel crack. Don’t be shy. Use your hoof pick to wiggle and manipulate the powder all the way inside. Your horse might be sore from the infection. If so, be as aggressive as he will let you. Over the course of a few days, the lameness will lessen as the product dries up the sulcus tissue and you can get more firm with your application. NOTE: We need enough inside the heel to Absorb, Draw and Dry the infected area.
  • Puff the powder into the clefts, around the shoe, and then brush it in with your hoof brush. Make sure every bit of sole, frog and heel are scrubbed with powder. Be vigilant with the nooks and crannies and skin tags. 

In normal circumstances, it will take 3-7 days to eliminate the bacteria breeding ground. (No more black goo or smell inside the crack.) See the photos below to review a terrible case of Sulcus thrush. (NOTE: You will know when this is complete when the heels become very firm (instead of spongy) and the horse begins walking in a proper “heel-landing” gait, instead of toe-landing.)

sulcus_thrush

DAY 1:  On this horse, all this thrush is internal. This is the worst because you can’t actually see the black goo. The actual frog and sole look fine. The thrush lurks below!

sulcus_thrush

DAY 1:  Dusting with NO THRUSH Powder. Note how the powder is wicking up the moisture inside the sulcus? It works that fast.

sulcus_thrush

DAY 4: This is great progress. The crack is closing and the heel tissue is reconnecting properly. Also, his heels are much, much firmer. He is no longer lame. NOW ON TO STEP 2!

Step 2.

No! We are not finished.  We have eliminated the breeding ground, allowing things to firm up. BUT now we need to get the heel fully closed up and “sealed.” If you stop now, a new troupe of bacteria will jump right back inside the crack.

Fortunately, step two is simple. Just keep dusting. Brush the powder into the frog and clefts and get the powder into the sulcus crack.  Dust 3-4 times a week until the crack heals over. With a typical case, this should take 30-60 days, depending on how deep the crack was. One note on this… If you have been previously using a caustic thrush product, it will have damaged the internal tissue. This means that it will likely take a bit longer to get from A-to-Z because it takes time for that tissue to recover and become viable again.  Just be a bit patient. After working with thousands of thrush cases I have never seen a sulcus crack that did not properly regrow.  NO THRUSH® [ NT Dry] will also allow the clefts regrow.  A horse prone to thrush will almost always have collateral grooves that are too deep around the frog. Be sure to always dust the clefts as well as the heels. NT will allow cleft regrowth.  [Quick note. Notice I made the statement about that NT will “allow” the clefts to grow.  NT Dry does not Make tissue grow, it Allows it to grow.

Step 3

PREVENTION:

Thrush is not “curable.” Once a horse has thrush, he is susceptible. When we look around our barn, it’s obvious: Some horses get it, some don’t.  So once we have eliminated the active thrush and repaired the heel crack, it is good practice to continue using NO THRUSH® on a regular basis (We recommend once-per-week. and a bit more often in wet conditions to keep the frog and heel firm). The powder will keep your horse’s feet healthy and firm, and thrush-free. We have 70+ horses and dust every horse every Friday, no matter what. Friday is known as “Dust Day.”

ESSENTIAL HEEL CRACK PRO TIPS.  For some excellent Pro-Tips and even more education, jump over to this post. If you plan to go after your horse’s heel cracks, you will want to read this so you know exactly what to expect.

SOME FINAL WORDS:

Once we come to recognize the patterns of thrush and frog disease and understand how the heel crack plays a crucial role, we will catch the warning signs far in advance. We will readily notice gait changes and temperament changes. In short, we will become proactive instead of reactive. This proactive attitude will save time and money. A year’s worth of NT maintenance is far less expensive than one call to the vet.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this was helpful. If you are struggling with this problem and have questions, Call us.  I’m pretty sure we can help. With over 70 horses at our Four Oaks Farm Sport Horse Rehabilitation and Reconditioning Centre, I’m pretty sure we have seen it all.

True Story – How thrush can end a career

True Story – How thrush can end a career

I guarantee the story below will make you Barrel Racers, Ropers, Jumpers and Eventers take a closer look at your horse’s feet. We are once again in the midst of thrush season. This is not a sales pitch, it’s a true story. It can make a difference to so many of you. The attached video is included to give you the visuals.
Long story short – if your horse has a heel crack, there is a problem.

Thrush is a MUCH bigger deal than most think.

** Early this Spring I was manning a No Thrush booth at a big barrel Race. I was chatting with a pretty young woman about how and why heel cracks are such a problem. She was clearly a big hitter in the racing world, as all the little girls nearby were goggling and pointing in rapt attention. The woman and I finished up our chat and she said she would take a look at her horse’s feet when she headed back to the barn.

A few hours go by and she stops back by the booth. “Wow,” she said, “I checked my horse’s feet and both hinds have big cracks between the heels [the sulcus area between the bulbs]. Honestly,” she added, “I’ve never noticed them before. I just thought the cracks were normal. A lot of my horses have them.”

I asked her to show me.

At the barn we picked up the front feet. They both looked great. No cracks, no problems. I asked her to push on the bottom of the heel bulbs and they were nice and firm.

We picked up the back feet and there they were. Narrow but deep cracks in between the heel bulbs. There was no visible thrush whatsoever – none of the black goo in the clefts that most people associate with thrush. In fact, she didn’t see any of the black goo so thrush was the furthest thing from her mind.

I asked her to push on the bulbs. They were soft, almost squishy. Finally, I slipped the hoof pick inside the crack and it came out black and smelly and gross.

The young woman put her hands over her mouth and her eyes went wide. In a horrified monotone she said, “I am the best horse mom on this planet. How could I have not seen this?”

She then turned even whiter, a realization hitting her, “This horse is my rock star. He’s my main horse. But for the last six weeks we have been horrible! We are nowhere near the money. Are you saying THRUSH could be the problem?”

I nodded, “Think about it. Your horse has infected heels. That means they are soft and sore. When you start your run, you are expecting him to plant that sore, infected heel into the sand and make a hard turn. He won’t do it. He can’t. Instead he will only plant his toe, which is not good enough to hold the torque of the turn. His feet will slip out of the sand. I’m guessing he is taking his turns too wide?” I asked. She gritted her teeth, blew out a frustrated sigh, nodding.

We dusted her horse’s feet twice that day, twice the next day, and once on the morning of the 3rd race. She and the horse came in third – in the money for the first time in ages.

Obviously No Thrush powder didn’t “regrow” the heel crack in 3 days. But it did absorb and eliminate the damp thrush breeding ground that had infected his heels (without damaging the live tissue because it is not caustic.) Ultimately, the heels firmed up and he was able to plant his feet properly into the sand.

Important Note. No Thrush powder is going to get rid of the sulcus thrush fairly quickly. BUT please don’t stop there. That heel crack is made by thrush. It should not exist. If you just stop treating as soon as things are firm, bacteria will head right back in there, keeping you forever in the “Thrush Cycle.” So keep dusting until that crack regrows. Take a look at the video or the photos at the No Thrush website. It is supposed to be a “Dimple” not a “Crack.” This regrowth will typically take 20-50 days, depending on the severity of the crack.

Once you get back to the dimple, you will want to dust once a week for prevention. Thrush is not curable. A thrushy horse will always be susceptible.

Another note: If you have been using caustic store-bought products, or things like bleach or peroxide to combat thrush, these products will kill live tissue as well as the bacteria. Please, please do not use these inside an open sulcus crack – and Definitely do not “soak” with anything caustic. If you do it can take many months for the deep tissue to recover and begin to grow back into the proper dimple.

Here is an example: You would not willingly put your cut hand in a bucket of 10% bleach water every day. It will sting like mad, it will damage the tissue at the edge of your cut, and the result will be a jagged, ugly scar that looks like nubby proud flesh. Not good.
