Sallenders and Mallenders can be a heartbreaking and tenacious skin issue. It presents as an accumulation of thickened, crusted scale and scabs on the front and hind legs of horses. Mallenders occurs behind the knees on the front leg while Sallenders occurs in front of the hock on the hind legs. The problem occurs most commonly in draft or heavy breeds and horses with feather. It is a common ailment in Gypsy, Shire, Drum and Friesian horses and is caused by excessive keratin production. Keratin is a fibrous protein forming the main structural constituent of hair, feathers, hoofs, claws, horns, etc.
Increased keratin is the reason these breeds have such beautiful feather and is also the reason some develop Mallenders/Sallenders. Both disorders cause discomfort for your horse and can lead to lameness. Excess keratin build up is only the beginning of the issue. If lesions are allowed to stay on for long periods a secondary bacterial and fungal infection may occur. There is no cure for the ailment but it can be managed easily. Farriers Ointment will gently remove the build-up and address the underlying issues as well. It is a simple and easy treatment and will have your horses legs soft and smooth and free of scabs, cracks and pain in no time - We offer a 100% money back guarantee on this promise.
Apply twice daily until the scabs soften and fall off. Avoid picking scabs prematurely as can lead to further irritation of the affected area. Full instruction on the container.
