using liquid bacon grease for hoof conditioner
Has anyone tried this?? Just curious as I am just about out and had BLT's yesterday. Just wondered if anyone has tried this. I figured I would ask..thanks!

Nope. Best hoof conditioner is good diet, turnout and trimming.

^^Agreed. I don't think any sort of cooking grease should be anywhere near horses, just no need and kinda gross xD Save it for the dogs. My mare is on constant turn out, semi-regular exercise and a balanced diet- she has some of the best barefoot hooves ever :)

I have heard that. I have a healthy horse with barefoot hooves but they will chip like crazy. I thought about doing it my self using a paint brush.

Just add biotin to her feed. Great supplement.

ok so why would it be a bad idea..just out of curiosity? thanks!

Seems to me it would attract ants to her feet.
