Okay so today I went to see my horses and they had ice packed into their hooves I got a lot out but not all they were really in there. So I was wondering how to get ice, snow, with some dirt out? I got it so they walk normal.
I tryed the warm water and had to hold their legs... almost got a knee in the face, it worked pretty well but I ended up using my pick to hack some ice off so they could stand normal. Im having my mom pick up more picks for me mind was bending and it went straight.... wouldnt pam make it slippery?
I second or third the Pam or WD40. Our saddle horse pen for horses kept up had a river running through the middle, so it has a given that we would chip ice out of shoes in the winter. I use a flat head scewdriver and a shoeing hammer.Just be careful where you have the screw driver head pointed as not to stick through his sole. And really support his hoof with your thighs when your doing it. Usually we pull everyones shoes for the winter but sometimes it snows before we get it done.
