Cool Fact: The Hoof Is Made of Keratin
The hard exterior of your horse’s hoof is made of keratin, which is the same substance that our fingernails are made out of. The horse cannot feel this part of the hoof, but the keratin is hard and provides an excellent barrier to protect the inner hoof structures. This is the reason that farriers can nail horseshoes to the hooves – a horse doesn’t feel the nails go into the keratin.
