I have a black and white paint gelding and I need to get some hoof polish for him but not sure which color clear or black, his hooves are white so I was told to use clear, however he was permanent splits and injuries from a past incident and I was told useing black will help cover them up and they wont be as notice able. Which should I use black or clear?? You can sorta see the splits I his front hooves in the pic
Even though he has white hooves, he is a black and white paint so I think either would look fine. I know a lady with a black and white paint and she always used black hoof polish on hers. I don't think it makes much difference unless you are showing at a breed or association show, as they might have rules about it.
Since his feet are white, he should probably have clear polish, black polish would need to be perfectly applied and it might still look very fake/ unprofessional. I would get a buffing/sander block from your farrier and see if you can spruce up his feet, maybe try a feed through supplement for long term better feet?
Clear on all of them since all of his legs are white. Id be more worried about them being the wrong colour than a few spots of less-ideal hoof. I know a lot of local and 4h judges want to see the natural colour on a horse with any white leg (even one) than black on a horse that should not have black hooves. Posted via Mobile Device
