P@M,

Saw this interesting photo on the elongated hooves of the zebra mare.

We saw this zebra mare with a stallion in close attendance on the H10 some way before Nkumbi in Sept. Anyone else seen one with such overgrown hooves and any idea if it is laminitis ?
She was really battling to walk and lay down quite often.....


Can't think that I've really read about it in zebra, but it basically is for the same reason as you clip your toenails. They grow. Normally wild animals walking around on hard ground wear them off, but sometimes you'll find that they simply don't wear off, especially if the animal keeps to softer ground than would normally be the case. I've read about this often for eland especially, and I've seen it with sheep on the farm as well. Can't say I've ever heard of it in zebra though. But then, if it can happen with eland I guess it can happen with zebra.
