GoldenwingsHorseshoes’ mission is to preserve the integrity of the entire structure of your horse. This lightweight, flexible horseshoe provides traction without slipping and sole protection, while also preventing unnecessary leverage with proper angles. GoldenwingsHorseshoes are designed using The Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci numbering system. Fibonacci incorporated values for triples of points whose distance forms the Golden Ratio. In the case of GoldenwingsHorseshoes, the triple points are the two sides of the frog and the toe length. The size and shape of the frog is the foundation for The Golden Ratio for the hoof.  As the Cornerstone must be positioned correctly for the structural soundness of a building, a shoe designed to respect the frog will influence soundness. Benefits include the reduction of coffin bone injuries, protection of the deep flexor tendon, evenly distributing impact, traction, and serves as a heat shield in hotter environments. They’d like to ask you, “What’s the reward for trying new things?” A free pair with any size order! See ad on page 21 for special code when ordering.

No Thrush®

What is “Sulcus Thrush?” Let’s start with the problem: Your horse is not lame, he’s just…“off.” You can’t figure it out and are about to call the vet. FIRST: Look at his feet. Is there an open crack between the heel bulbs? When you push on the heels, are they softer than normal? If so, this is Sulcus Thrush. Cracks between the bulbs are open wounds. It is warm and moist in there, so of course thrush (an anaerobic bacteria) will invade this spot. THE RESULT: This infection will make your horse’s heels soft and sore. He will be walking on his toes (instead of landing on his heel), which is why he is “off.” THE SOLUTION: No Thrush® – The First Ever DRY Formula is a powdered thrush treatment sold worldwide. No Thrush® is non-caustic. This is important because caustic products kill bacteria, but they also damage live tissue. This stunts proper tissue re-growth. Using No Thrush®, you simply puff the powder into the heel cracks and brush it around the frog and collateral grooves. The heels will begin to firm up and the horse will begin to load properly on the heels. This is good, but you aren’t there yet. Be sure to dust every few days until the heel “crack” grows back to a healthy “dimple.” See ad on page 26
