Problems with Hooflex

I've noticed that lately my haflinger has had really dry hooves. He got a white line around his coronet band and underneath his hoof it would chip off rather easily when I picked his feet. I bought him Hooflex which works great! His hooves don't have that dry look to them anymore. Unfortunately he freaks out from it! Sammy doesnt mind me putting it on him but the second he smells it, he completely freaks out and today he got himself hooked around the wooden post and cut his chin open. Is there anything I can do to help him get used to it?

Ha, what a silly horse. I think there are other products that will give you the same results, so try something else that doesnt smell so bad for him. :)

Try a supplement in his feed instead, I find it works better.

My horse does the same thing. I thought he was going crazy, he will move all around like he is trying to dodge the applicator brush.
