BLEYNE (in Farriery). An inflammation in the foot of a horse between the sole and the bone. Bleynes are of three sorts: the first, bred in spoiled wrinkled feet with narrow heels, are usually seated in the inward or weakest quarter. The second infests the gristle, and must be extirpated as in the cure of the quitter bone. The third is occasioned by small stones and gravel between the shoes and the sole. To cure, pare the foot, let out the matter, it any, dress the sore as the pinch of a nail.
