Corona ointment and hoof conditioner- its mostly lanolin (sp?)

Although I think my mare is named after the beer lol. Lacy's Corona. The breeder's last name was Lacy. Hehe.

I use hooflex ointment on the heel and coronet, works well and stays for a long time. If your horse has bad hooves, avoid any kind of sugary products like sweet feed or molasses, it's very bad for hooves.

HOOFLEX and RAINMAKER are great products. I can really notice a differance as far healthy hoofs when these products are used. I personally like RAINMAKER for bad hoofs apply it 2 or 3 times a week for a few weeks then you can go to 1 time a week.

Ricci is on Horseshoer's Secret, has been for about a year and a half now. You have to stick with stuff like that, it takes a long time for the hoof to grow from the coronet band to the ground, so you can't try it for a week and decide it doesn't work, because it will with time. I've been able to start riding her barefoot on the back trails for the first time. Her feet are getting beautiful, they aren't chipping or cracking like they used to, and she's no where near as tender. Of course, a little bit of that is good farrier work too. =]

Well I use a hoof oil called rain maker and I think that it seems to help my horses hooves. She has relatively good feet already so idk how much help it is doing but I seem to see a difference. I only put it on if it is dry outside or if her feet look dry. When it is humid or just rained usually their hooves are pretty moist already so hoof oil isnt really needed. As for horses with shoes, they need hoof oil as much as horses without shoes. My sisters horse was having some issues with his shoe falling off. The farrier told her not to put hoof oil on his nails because it will make his foot softer. That was in the summer tho when their feet are already softer and growing fast. I put hoof oil on my horses shoe nails though and she doesn't have a problem. Putting the oil on the top of their hooves I think does more good because the top part is acctually alive. The rest is just like your finger nail. Also putting it on the inside of the for is good for them and again the frog is the alive part so it is good to put the oil on that. Hope that helps.

I use (funnily enough) "Worlds best hoof oil" and it really lives up to its name.
Two of my girls had a huge crack in one hoof so I put that on and it actually works really fast I was honestly suprised. And laasanna, arabian mare, white hooves, they are awful and she managed to take a big chunk out of one hoof god only knows how, but the hoof oil, applied daily worked wonders, and it leaves the hooves shiny to lol.

This stuff:
World's Best Hoof Oil 500ml for sale - TradeMe.co.nz - New Zealand
And that advertising is not exagerated either it actually does work that well from my own experience.

I use hooflex for my horse. I wash the feet off and clean them,make sure they are dry and brush on the ointment stuff. I also sometimes use a hoof conditioner and she ends up having sparkly hooves! And smells like coconuts

I see no bad side effects .
