Mud fever is a common condition that affects the lower limbs of equines, most typically affecting the back of the pastern. It commonly occurs in wet conditions. Initially the infection starts as matted hair and crusty, scabbed and inflamed skin. As the condition progresses, mud fever can cause anything from swelling to severe lameness.

Decide on the style of clip required depending on the job the horse needs to do and how he is kept. A simple neck and chest may be sufficient for a horse in light work, living out, but a stabled horse with a full season of hunting ahead of him will probably need a hunter clip or a full clip.
