    Excellent article with pictures. Should be shared with American Farrier Asso & sent to the magazine for publication. Donkeys & mules hoof care does not get the attention they deserve. Thanks again for the great info.

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us. I am dealing with Whiteline for the first time. I’m told the warm and wet winter we have experienced this year in SC is the main cause.

    My mule came up acting lame in December. We had had a-lot of mud and snow through the fall. I noticed ridges in the front hoof and found thrush in and around the frog. We had some white line starting to show up. Took her to the vet and did a blood panel and her thyroid was .083. Waited for all of the blood work to come back to rule out other disease and we were OK. Started doing as you have by wrapping the foot to draw out the infection, did this five days on four days off for a month. Farrier came in and cut the thrush out from around the frog. During this time she went on diet as vet said it was metabolic disorder. Safe choice feed and nothing but grass hay. Farrier said it would be a year before the white line has grown out all the way. Treat her bi-weekly with thrushbuster.
