What can I put on my horses hooves in wet conditions?

I have no choice but to keep him on mud at the moment. I've noticed the bottom of his hooves getting really soft. Is there anything I can put on them to seal moisture out until everything freezes?

The old timers around here simply brush on iodine or betadine to help dry and prevent bacterial/fungal problems in very wet conditions. You can buy a big bottle relatively cheaply.

Agreed. Betadine solution.

Some may not agree with me but I love Corona...not corona hoof treatment, the plain straight tube. In winter I warm it up until it's soft and easy to work with like a lotion, put on some rubber gloves and then smear it all over the hooves including the underside and wedging a gooey sloppy amount into the frog and crevices. That stuff is waterproof as heck, resists bacteria and seems to lock out moisture for a long time. When it gets cold it hardens a little too. The only drawback is it can be messy and your bedding might stick to the outside of your horses hooves.
