    Forshner's Hoof Packing

    Posted by Dee on 11th Aug 2015

    Think about going on a five mile run in bare feet in dry sand. Where are the Dubarry models to wrap my legs and tend to my feet? Luckily for my horse, I am always prepared. For years I have prepared pre-made " balls" of Forshner's hoof packing to pack into my horse's hoofs. I use them after each day of a Horse show when the ground is dry. Forshner's has been around for over 25 years. It is used to combat hoof dryness, hardened frogs, and contracted heels. It is like the ultimate foot lotion for my horse. I see immediate results the next morning when the hoof has lost the dry marble appearance and looks conditioned and moist. I also have used the hoof packing as a bandage for whatever you place against the hoof ( Magic Cushion, Venice Turpentine, Huuf Magic, Magna Paste) the Forshner's will keep it in. I wear gloves when handling the product because I have found that black tar under my fingernails is not attractive. I know it takes some preparation but dry, brittle, sore feet can be alleviated. For that next show make some pre-made balls and pack some gloves. We are lucky to have Forshener's at Equus Now!
