Hi jadedeyes, I use this product. I have the small travel size, which is good as it comes with an applicator brush.
My horse is barefoot and I have been on the roads quite bit as the ground has been really muddy (winter and all). I bought it as my horse developed a hair line crack, his feet were really drying out, winter mud and all.
It's really put the moisture back in my guys hoofs.
It ain't cheap, but it seems to go very long way. You only need to apply a very thin layer just to coat the hoof, any more is just a waste according to the instructions. The consistancy is fluid and it looks abit like runny treacle. When I apply it, it darkens my boys feet his hooves are really dark now. I place my bottle in a small dish as I'm paranoid I'm going to knock it over, as its expensive.
I have a dressage friend who also swears by it, she applies it daily, and has no problems.
My other friend said the product was out of her budget, but has decided to get some, she has been looking at the results on my boy.
