Connemara Pony Research into Hoof Wall Separation Syndrome (HWSS): HWSS research has been officially presented to the world.  [Link to this aticle]


Some delegates from the International Committee of Connemara Pony Societies have been seeking to raise this issue for debate. Here in Ireland we seem to be sticking our heads in the sand like Ostriches. Please click on above link, then question, debate and educate. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!

    Sheila Ramsey's statistics as posted on CPBS facebook page.

    The HWSS blog has been active since November 2011, that is 19 months.
    Overnight blog hits went over the 20,000 mark. This works out at an average of over 1000 hits per month. There are of course in reality, peaks and troughs in the traffic but that is a normal thing.

    United States 5660

    United Kingdom 2577

    Sweden 2251

    Germany 1865

    Canada 1236

    New Zealand 1081

    Australia 709

    Finland 618

    Denmark 501

    France 376

    The saddest thing though, is that Ireland does not even appear in the top ten countries from where these hits have originated.

    So the question has to be asked, WHY NOT?

    1. Julie, did you get a veterinary opinion? Did your farrier or vet mention the above syndrome? There are a few other reasons for feet falling apart besides foot wall separation. Are you located in Ireland?
