CLEFTS, Chops, Cracks. A disease which attacks the heels of horses, from hard labour, surfeits, or unwholesome food. It may be cured by shaving off the hair, applying linseed or Barbadoesoil, and keeping the heels clean. The damp resister, rubbed on with the proper brush, softens the hoof and restores it to a natural, healthy state.
Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835.
