Hoof-Brittle, or Brittle-hoof, a disorder in horses, which is either constitutional in the ani-mal, or arises from a surfeit, and as farriers express it, falls down into his feet; or, is the consequence of the horse having formerly been foundered (which see). To remove this malady, some prescribe the following ointment to be liberally applied to the hoofs two or three times a day : Melt equal quantities of turpentine, mutton-suet, raw bee's-wax, hog's-lard, salad-oil, and deer's-grease (or the tallow of venison), in an earthen pot. After anointing the hoofs, "especially at the setting on of the hair," Professor Bradley adds, that they should be stopped "with cow's dung and dog's grease mixed together."
