Hoof Wall Separation Disease

This site is all about HWSD,  a disease found among Connemara ponies. Ponies with this condition have brittle hoof walls, which tend to break of easily. This may cause severe lameness and even leads to euthanasia. In the past it was sometimes called Seedy Toe or Coconut Matting Hoofs.
