Answer
HI  WE USE IODINE CRYSTALS TO BURN IT OUT OF THE FOOT, THEN KEEP THE FROG TRIMED AND KEEP MUD IN THE FEET AFTER THEY ARE TRAINED UNTIL, THE GO TO THE TRACK THE NEXT DAY.ALWAYS WASH THE FEET OUT AFTER THEY TRAIN LOOKING FOR STONES ETC..  THEN PACK THE FEET WITH MUD AND PLACE A PIECE OF PAPER OVER THE MUS THAT HELP KEEP THE MUD IN THE FOOT TILL YOU CLEAN THE FOOT THE NEXT DAY. YOU ALSO HAVE MEDICINE CALLED THRUSHEX YOU CAN BUY AT YOUR TACK SHOP.  THNAKS ED HESS

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
