Be carefull, you can sand too much especially around the coronet band.
And black hooves will be black with the clear hoof polish, same with the striped hooves.

This is my thought too. I personally would use clear on all four, making sure the black hooves are all clean and nice before applying so they look nice and black once polished.

True. You are not allowed to use colored hoof polish at an appy show.

MagicDestiny, I was looking in the rule book for this, but couldn't find it. Can you tell me where to look?
