My horse keeps getting snowballs in his hooves, and it turns slippery when he comes in on the cement floor.

Would spraying Pam on his feet be a solution?? I am concerned it might make it slippery on the cement floor?

Let me know please! :)

Several posts on this topic.

Use the search feature with key words snow and hooves.

Here is one of them:

My main concern was pam vs wood floors.

Grease + wood floors = slippery IMO.

I stop my horses before they enter the barn (BO put a mat down just outside the doors) and pick the snow/ice out.

The pam is not going to be a factor. It will NOT adhere long enough to prevent any build up of the snow.
