Hi there Stuart :) . In the absence of any replies (as yet) I'll endeavour to get the ball rolling in the hope one of the pros will come to your rescue shortly!
I can't help thinking, perhaps the 'chicken should come before the egg' :lol:
Your title says it all, for me, but the message body makes no reference to the Seedy toe which I believe to be the crux of the problem & which no type of shoe, on its' own, will correct.
I'm sure the 'forthcoming' advice will be to completely remove all the necrotic tissue, be it wall or deeper, thoroughly disinfect/sterilise the area & dependent on severity, either leave unshod & contine to treat or, fill/seal with an epoxy type material perhaps with 'holes' added for continuing disinfectent access, reshoe & continue work if the horse is sound.
Treatment & products used will, I'm sure vary from one operator to the next but I've a feeling neither Cytek nor NB shoes will be recommended for polo, as traction is so important. Perhaps I'm wrong soooo.......over to you pros :wink:

Are you asking for advice on Cytec shoes or seedy toe Stuart? I'm a little unclear...

A fARRIER at Cowdrey suggested Cytec for seedy toe, they are not legal in the rules of play,they are so wide fine if the horse is out of play and badly lame my pony is not lame and is on concaves, cytec dos not have the ground purchase at speed and stop without studs in the front shoes, and studs in the fronts are not legal in polo, we have fixed the problem Dave Garland had some good ideas and they have worked....

Right...I am aware of that.

I'm just not quite sure what you question is and to whom you are/where addressing it.

You are on the 'horseowners' forum you know?

Which problem have you fixed? The seedy toe? Good. Please share what you have learnt. I for one would genuinly like to know.
