My favorite recipe for hoof greebles(whatever kind) was always a betadine scrub and epsom salts paste. Apply to sole/pack it in as needed then lay a piece of 4" gauze or something. Vetwrap the hoof then apply a duct tape boot. Or you can use a hoof boot if you have one. I like the duct tape boot for this. To make one lay strips overlapping each other to a size that will cover the sole and wall pretty much.. Wrap more around it to hold on and leave it for a day or 3.. The paste will draw out and dry up greebles.. *greebles are whatever is bugging the hoof, thrush, abscesses etc..

My farrier swears by tea tree oil and used it to treat my mares hind foot with good results. Have also seen it used successfully on another horse for white line separation. Not sure what about it does the trick, but it does seem to work and you can pick it up at the local drug store.
