Has anyone ever used hooflex before?

It's a conditioner for hooves. I was just wondering because I noticed that Sissy's hooves are really dried out and I need something to use. I found a tub of it in the bottom of my 'horsie stuff box" lol.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

nothing really and truly works that is a topical application.

good hooves = good nutrition - - I would try a hoof supplement.

Ok, well I have two suggestions. Anyone want to break the tie?

kickshaw--I totally agree with you, it's just like our fingernails. I mean you just can't smear cream on them and hope to fix it.

buckaroo--yes, it really really really smells horrible. I am sure that my hooflex has been frozen a lot of times.

Thank you Kickshaw!

Try a good diet, a hoof supplement and proper exercise/environment. You cannot fix hooves by plastering stuff on the outside of them. People in my barn use all kinds of hoof dressings and like to put them on my gelding when I'm not there. The smell and nasty, greasy hooves left behind are a dead giveaway.
