Sallenders and Mallenders can be a demoralizing and stubborn skin condition found in Cobs and heavy horses. It first appears as an build up of thickened, crusted scale and scabs on the front and hind legs of horses. It is sometimes known as "Cob Knee". Sallenders occurs in the crease of the knee on the front leg and Mallenders is present in front of the hock on the hind legs. This condition effects mostly Draft or heavy breeds, although it can be found in many horses that are heavily feathered. As a Farrier I often come across Sallenders and Mallenders Gypsy, Shire, Drum and Friesian horses.
The cause of Sallenders and Mallenders is the over production of keratin. Keratin is the building block of hair and horn. It is the fibrous protein. Sallenders and Mallenders can become extremely uncomfortable for your horse and if left untreated can cause lameness. If lesions are left to develop, secondary fungal and bacterial infection may transpire.
There is no cure for Sallenders and Mallenders but it can be managed easily. Farriers Ointment will gently soften the waxy build-up in a couple of days and the scabs will start to drop off. Farriers Ointment will also help prevent and address any infections associated with this condition. It is a simple, safe and natural treatment and will have your horses legs smooth and free of scabs, cracks and pain in a very short time.
