let me know how that works. amazingly rockets thrus is clearing up with bi weekly porings of coppertox into his pads despite the wet but the other 3 are not as fortunate. all the horses at the barn have been in mud since Christmas eve.

Makes sense that if an experiment fails, it would be impractical to have enough material around to do more failures.

That said, I just did a comparison on Vettec CS and ShuFill.

Vettec CS = $30/180cc= $0.167/cc

ShuFill = $70/1320cc= $0.053/cc

Then if ShuFill with CS granules is even as good Vettec CS which we both have used, the ShuFill would be around 1/3 the price.

ShuFill is not designed as an adhesive like Vettec but the Vettec was not sticking when I pulled the shoes.

I messed around with the plumbers putty and I don't think that is a viable option. If it was somebody would probably be doing it.

Just some early morning thoughts...........

Talked to my farrier today while he was doing my horse's rear feet. What he currently does now is: After foot is trimmed and prepped he applies Durasole and while it is still wet applies the copper sulfate powder. Then he applies the DIM. He no longer mixes it into the DIM. He said that this way there is a layer of the copper sulfate where you need it to be. So far it has been working great. He also said you really don't want to be breathing the stuff.

Hey thanks for the continued update @lightning .

I did look up the powder you mentioned in a previous post and it wasn't very much more expensive than the CS granules in root kill.

Yes, I've read that CS is very toxic to humans. Can be absorbed into the skin, and breathing powder produces problems. If it gets on the hands you sure don't want to be rubbing the eyes.

May sound bad, but the same precautions need to be taken with Keratex hoof hardner and other products as well.

I just read that Durasole also contains anti fungal properties along with a little iodine.

Sounds like your farrier has you covered.

Next time if you think of it, I along with others would be interested in the brand DIM he uses.

I will ask him. I believe Durasole has formaldehyde in it. Whatever it has, it does work great.
