Use a Magnetic Sweeper to Pick up Dangerous Metal Debris that Causes Hoof Injuries

Metal Debris is a Cause for Concern for Horse Owners

Metal debris in equine facilities such as stables, paddocks, pastures, arenas and race tracks slowly accumulates over time. Even without a readily available source or incident, metal debris is present. If the equine facility is a mixed use facility used for other purposes the debris can be quite obvious and severe and the need to control it is much higher.

The need to control metal debris in equine facilities is high because the potential for horses to get metal debris embedded in their hooves or have a metal piece puncture their hoof can cost the horse in lameness and time to recover. Complications from a nail puncture can range from a simple abscess to severe career ending injuries if it pierces one of the sensitive structures of the hoof.

Don’t under estimate the amount of metal debris that can be present around farm buildings and roadways, in paddocks and pastures and in arenas especially those arenas used for mixed events. Fencing activities over time (nails & wire) are a persistent source of debris.

The Silent Threat That Can Be Devastating to Horses.

Penetrating foreign objects into a horses’ hoof can cause painful abscesses that can be devastating. If a horse steps on a foreign object, usually a nail or piece of metal debris, it drives into the sole, taking dirt and bacteria in with it.

When the foreign object is pulled out the sole closes up, sealing itself and the bacteria in the hoof. If the area is not opened up immediately to clean out the bacteria and other debris, an abscess can form.

The most dangerous penetrating wound to the hoof is a puncture to the navicular bursa, most commonly caused by the horse stepping on a nail. With this type of injury, the nail or other foreign object finds its way up and through the back third of the frog and into a small sac of fluid between the navicular bone and deep digital flexor tendon called the navicular bursa. When this happens, bacteria and debris get into this sac of fluid.

Once the object is pulled out the area seals itself, allowing a perfect environment for bacterial growth. If the navicular bursa becomes infected it can be very painful, and since it is located so deep in the hoof it can be very difficult to treat. If the infection spreads from the navicular bursa to the deep digital flexor tendon sheath, the infection can travel up the leg, making it almost impossible to treat and ultimately costing the horse his life.

Because farm environments of any kind hold the high potential for many stray nails, wire and screws, we recommend a magnetic sweeper as another preventative horse health measure. You will be surprised at all the hidden hazards you find.

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of ATV magnets?

If you have arena ring grooming equipment that's the best place to start, you can hang a Wrasse hanging magnet from that equipment and do 2 jobs at the same time. For cleaning up areas outside of the arena ring, such as paddocks and lanes, the best piece of equipment is the Rhino.

Selection of Equine Facilities Magnetic Sweepers

Severe Off Road Compact Magnetic Sweeper

USD$2,199.99USD$2,399.99Select options

(all prices in USD)

Available in 3 sizes: Rhino 62″, Rhino 74″, Rhiono 86″

Loads of Options to Pick up Metal Debris Faster.

The Rhino magnetic sweeper easily tows behind ATV’s, UTV’s, tractors, lawn mowers, golf carts or other utility vehicles in use at equine facilities. The Rhino is extremely simple in its design, making it very durable. It is a popular choice for many commercial type users with large dirt areas to clean including horse arenas and farm pastures and paddocks. It’s not only popular because of its simple but effective design but because it’s offered in three sweeping widths of five, six and seven feet wide and has the ability to continuously adjust the sweeping height from zero to five and a half inches. You can also add accessories such as the Quick Clean Off Sleeve to allow very quick and easy clean off.

The Debris Digging Rake accessory is also a handy accessory used to dislodge embedded debris in the ground and to aid in the pickup process.

It’s all the little extra features built into a compact size that make the Rhino magnetic sweeper a popular choice for equine facilities.

Severe Duty Off Road Magnetic Sweeper!

Durability, Power & Easy Clean Off System

USD$5,479.99Add to cart

(all prices in USD)

Available in 1 sweeper width: Yacare 72″

This thing is built like a tank!

The Yacare magnetic sweeper is a 72 inch wide, durable off road tow behind magnetic sweeper with Spring Assisted Clean Off!

The Yacare clean off system is entirely different from the Rhino. It replaces the Quick Clean Off Sleeve system with an easier more durable long term solution that’s especially helpful for heavy debris conditions. 

The Yacare’s 72 inch sweeping width, lighter tongue weight and overall slim profile makes it a good choice for towing behind ATV’s, UTV’s, or small tractors. Perfect for cleaning paddocks and riding arenas.

There is also an optional Debris Digging Rake accessory that can be attached to the Yacare to disturb the ground and loosen debris. This is a good option for paddocks and pasture areas.

(all prices in USD)

Available in 1 sweeper width: Caiman 82″

Similar to the Yacare Only Bigger!

However, the Caiman is wider with an 82 inch width.  It also has much more power with double the magnets.

More power and wider sweeping width make it a good choice for towing behind pickup trucks, larger tractors and UTVs around equine facilities. 

The Caiman also has solid pick up performance in off road conditions such as pastures and paddocks. It comes with a “wrap around” design, adjustable sweep height, flat proof tires, adjustable hitch height and optional debris digging rake accessory.
