    I use a hammer and/or screwdriver to get it out VERY CAREFULLY though. And Pam really Does work. I buy the massive cans of no name non stick spray.

    I've found that a great big screwdriver works well by inserting the blade in by the frog, where the frog joins the sole. Often times the whole works pops off.

    I've heard that vaseline will keep ice from packing into the hoof and salt will dissolve anything that does pack in.

    I use the claw end of a hammer. All the boys have learned to give me both hooves from one side so I don't have to walk all the way around them. The claw works very well, one wack and the ice usually comes right out.

    Oooh I had the same problem! First off, does your horse have shoes on? If he does, the ice will defiantly be in there because the metal on the shoes attracts the ice.

    If there is ice, I just take the hoof pick, and go to the top of the frog where there is the little creases outside of frog, and scoop the pick in there, and the ice just pops right out. Hard to understand? Aha sorry didn't know how to exactly work it.

    Another way is to get a small hammer, and gently hit the ice with it, and it'll come out. I did it on my horse's hooves, and he didn't mind it at all.

    No shoes, would warm salt water work if I keep their hoof in it? Ill have to bring a screwdriver out there. I did put it there but it wouldnt lift out that's how I almost broke my pick... :(
