    Great for toughening feet

    Posted by Abigail on 26th Jun 2013

    I'm so glad Equus Now has this! I've used it in the past for toughening up tender feet and have had great success. Just be aware - it is VERY sticky. Luckily using something oil-based, like mayo or peanut butter, will help you get it off your hands. Everything else might be ruined though.

    Good for sensitive feet

    Posted by Kristine M. on 26th Jun 2013

    My horse has more sensitive feet which can be a problem as we go to different shows with footing that varies from footing at home.

    I use this product about twice a week to help toughen the hoof.
    It is extremely gooey and sticky, so be careful! Doesn't store very well over a long, cold winter.
