Have your farrier paint the soles with Durasole before applying the packing and orthotic package. It's inexpensive, also anti-microbial and will improve cross-link bonding at the cellular level to toughen the solar tissues.
Why? Magic Cushion is vennice turpintine. It will help build and toughen the sole. Not to mention the fact that the pad will stop exfoliation of the sole and a single appliction of Dura Sole is about as good as taking a single antibiotic pill out of a 10 day script.
Don't get me wrong, I use the crap out of Dura Sole.
