Hoof Polish

What do you guys use for hoof polish? I think mine is Fiebings or something, but I don't really like it because its too watery. I've heard Rain Maker is really good. What would you suggest?

Thanks.

I use Rain Maker and I really like it, definitely thicker... but it smells pretty bad.

Rain Maker is the stuff I used. Everyone at my old barn used this stuff and it stuck since.

Rain Maker is definitely the best!! The only thing I can complain about is the smell and how hard the container is to open sometimes.

Thanks for the input guys! Everyone seems to be recommending RainMaker so I think I might pick some up.

Thanks.

Are you just wanting to "pretty up the feet' like a nail polish or are you wanting a moisturizer?

Rainmaker is a good moisturizer, but it attracts dirt.

If you are wanting a gloss, you can try absorbine clear polish (it washes off easily).

Also, you can try hoof sealers that will leave a glossy finish and protect the hoof from moisture extremes.
