Red Horse: Hydro Hoof
WHY WE LOVE IT
The ultimate in hoof moisturisation! Easy to apply, soaks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy residue unlike some of it's rivals. This has improved the strength and condition of my young horse no end.
We also use this as a barrier to damp conditions to prevent the hooves softening and breaking.
HydroHoof is a honey-based hoof moisturiser that soothes dry, cracked or inelastic hooves and rejuvenates withered, dry frogs.
Developed at the request of an equine podiatrist, HydroHoof is designed to balance moisture in the hoof. The formulation allows the horn to absorb only as much moisture as it needs, which prevents it from becoming soft and soggy.
Beeswax has been added to help prevent moisture loss from the hoof and bergamot oil conditions the hoof and helps protect it against bacteria and fungi.
HOW TO USE
For use on dry, cracked hooves. Apply daily to clean hoof walls with a brush. Increase interval between applications as improvement is shown. Apply to frogs if they are excessively hard and withered. Residue may be wiped off after allowing some time to soak in for aesthetic purposes.
