Farriers/cleaning hoof with dry cloth after spraying some water


hello. after cleaning the hoof with a hoof pick, shall i spray some water and then again clean with a dry cloth for the frog to be clean?

Hello Rohit... Thank you for your question...

You certainly can.  I feel as long as your horse is keep in reasonably dry conditions
But too much water is detrimental to the hooves. A light spraying is fine.!!

Remember... With race horses & many show horses, they are bathed  "daily"
like a human & can cause soft, weak hoof walls, separations & such.

Best to You !!
