Meet my very 1st horse, Lazarus.
I couldn't wait for Santa anymore or ask one more time for a pony for my bday (after age 30 it got embarrassing). I took matters in my own hands and I finally decided to pick a pony that needed a new home. Laz found me as I contemplated with this idea. He was sweet yet very sassy, fresh off the track, Thoroughbred (OTTB).
Join us for our re-training, rehabbing from laminitis and testing all parts of mixed up horsemanship and partnership, and luck...

Testing out a new product: THRUSH B GONE

Have you heard of "Thrush B Gone?" 
I saw it on FB and contacted them looking for another thrush product to test out.
As you may know, we've been battling Thrush/White Line Disease since Laz's laminitis a few years ago, however he does seem prone to getting thrush hooves despite his clean diet/turnout 24/7/every other day grooming.
Thrush B Gone said they would be happy to mail out a bottle of their solution for us to try, and are excited to see positive results.
I stopped all other brands and applied it today (Sunday 11/10)
I'm to wait 2 days to see a positive change and if need be, re apply.
 Most infected hoof: Right Hind
 Right Hind after I applied Thrush B Gone
 I decided to put it on his club hoof (Right Front) since these vertical cracks have split

And on the frog crack at the center sulcus 
 And to his Left Hind, that frog had just shed and had some dark spots and crevices so I thought I would soak it
Prior to application, I picked and wire brushed hooves.
Then I just squirted it at infected areas
Fingers crossed!

While I allowed the product to absorb into hoof, I washed Laz's back with his fungal shampoo, allowed that to sit for 10 minutes
 and rinsed off. He had a QUICK case of rain rot that popped up.
Laz approved of his spa day
I'll be following up about both the Thrush B Gone and what I think or what results I see, and Laz's rain rot
I'll be 100% honest as always in my review.


  1. I can't wait to see how well it works! What rain rot shampoo are you using? Chrome had some pop up seemingly overnight too! I thought I got it all, but now it's on his chest... ugh!

  2. Looking forward to your review--we struggle a bit with thrush too so always looking for good stuff! :)

  3. Definitely looking forward to reading the review!!

  4. I always love finding new products. Hope it works well for you. :)

  5. Holy cannoli, what is going on with those cracks?!?! I've never seen cracks quite that high up before.

    And, lol, I am the rain rot fixer queen, since I live in the freaking rainforest. I really like chlorexadine wash and/or Equiderma (has chlorhexadine in it), ACV w/tea tree oil, or athlete's foot spray.

    1. Athlete's foot spray is my next try if the shampoo/listerine doesn't help....

  6. Looking forward to this review. Dancer has been dealing with some thrush these last few weeks and I'm looking for products that could be used to prevent thrush even more than curing it. The only thing I've found that works super effectively without killing healthy tissue is ToDay paste, but that's something I use once the horse HAS thrush, not as a regular preventative (on top of good horse keeping practices, of course).

    1. I used a paste years ago called Tomorrow, for cow udders...but it did ZERO for us. Laz's condition in his RH is atrocious but the purple Thrush off seemed to help while under his cast. I'm hoping Thrush B gone gets us to the end! :)
