Once you get your horse's feet less tender, how often do you have to reapply durasole to keep them that way?
Very sorry because not only can I not answer your question, but I'm going to dip in and steal your thread with a related question of my own:
I'm applying straight 7% iodine to my mare's soles to toughen them up (once daily application). Can I apply it to the tops of her hooves as well? I know that I may not get any benefit from that, but I always have some extra left on the brush and it can't hurt--can it?
When I apply the durasole some of it inevitably gets onto the top of his hoof and I have seen no ill effects. I have been applying it now for 4 weeks.
Also use care around the frog, will dry out frog and cause premature shedding. Durasole however can be used on the frog.
Okay. I think Ive been applying it for about 4 weeks now. The past week it hadn't been absorbing as well, but would still eventually soak in. Not like before where I would have to work fast to get it spread out over the whole bottom of the foot. This week I haven't applied it at all and his frogs started to...fall apart? For lack of a better description. They are pealing like crazy, sometimes in rather alarming chunks and all have developed a groove down the middle of them. I am between farrier right now too. :( Going to call another one today. Hopefully I can get somebody out!
