Protect your Hooves!

 

Aside from those regular care routines, you can also use hoof packing products such as Magic Cushion. This magnificent product is a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic packing that simply provides long-lasting and fast-acting relief for overworked and overheated hooves. Having its active ingredient Turpentine that is derived from the distillation of resin from trees (mainly pines), Magic Cushion relieves soreness, hardens and dries the soles. Iodine, though only needed in small amounts, is generally essential for metabolism, heat regulation, and bone development.

 KEEPING YOUR HORSE’S HOOVES DRY AND STRONG

A hoof in the tip of the horse’s toe is not just a covering. It plays a crucial role in the equine’s ability to survive and function --- aside from the sound it makes. Without healthy hooves, the horse may feel uncomfortable and will be unable to train or work. The thick and horny keratin covering is somewhat similar to human fingernails that are largely susceptible to split, crack, chip, or break off into large pieces. This is why hooves should always be regularly cleaned, trimmed, polished for minor imperfections, and administered with treatments for foot diseases and injuries.

A horse's hoof is generally considered as a limb structure that can be divided into five areas, namely the wall, the sole, the frog, the periople, and the white line. The hoof’s function is innately designed to support the animal’s weight, dissipates the energy impact as the hard keratin covering strikes the ground or surface, protects the tissues and bone within the hoof capsule and aids heel expansion.

HOOF CARE TIPS 
Caring for the hooves should be a regular routine:
• Applying hoof oil to prevent splits and cracks mostly during summer.
• Picking out the feet daily with a hoof pick.
• Checking the shoes for wear and tear.
• Checking unshod horses for any split, crack, flare, and overgrown misshapen
hooves.
