This may be incorrect but I put duct tape all over so he doesn't wear out the diaper on the bottom. The diaper only has to come up over the sides of the hoof enough to hold the poultice and so the duct tape is on the sides. (not up in the coronet band) I don't think it has to breathe, I change it twice a day.
And yes make it so its a thick paste, not sure where I got some stuff but it already was in a paste..more like a slime...
