I have dealt with all types of hoof problems over the years including what I call "quarter cracks". I have had people give me all kinds of reasons for them including hereditary issues, feed, mineral and weather conditions. I currently have a young cow that developed SIX quarter cracks this past summer. She comes from a long strong cow family with great feet and the same can be said about the sire's side. She had a terrible time this summer and I have babied her along to this point where she is doing quite well. I have talked to my farrier and he ordered a product for filling quarter cracks that works miracles on horses. I guess what I am wondering is if anyone has any thoughts about this kind of foot problem, how you may have dealt with it and any other input. Just thought it would be nice to have a new subject.
