    Crisco would probably be the cheapest. I better not use the butter flavor or my barn cats will be following the horses around trying to lick it off

    Everyone gave great advice! I'm going to have to try the vaseline idea too, since I have the same problem with ice in Jubi's hooves.

    W-D-40 Works good too. It conditions the hoof as well and keeps moisture in.

    For the back feet I would pick them up then put them down right away. Then just gradually increase the time until he is comfortable. You could could give him a good rub on the neck or butt for praise. I wouldn't recomemd treats especially with geldings and stallions.
