NT-Dry powder for thrush/WLD - anyone used this?

Hi
I was wondering if anyone out there has had any experience using this product for thrush? I believe it can also be used for white line disease and mud fever. I have just purchased some and started using it today, am really hoping it does what it says and helps my horses out with their thrushy frogs.
I like that it is natural and non-caustic and being a powder is much easier and mess-free to apply.

I used this a bit in the early spring, and felt I was constantly battling thrush. I found spraying the foot with a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar/Water (50/50) worked best for my guy's thrush.

Did it not work that well for you? I am in the first week where you are meant to use it daily, am finding the cleaning process pretty messy as my paddocks are very muddy and they say not to add more moisture by hosing first. I can understand this but it does make cleaning their feet first much more time consuming and since their feet are wet anyway I wonder how much difference it makes. Given that I am drying the frog and hoof with a towel after cleaning anyway I wonder if rinsing off isnt such a bad thing right now.
I was using apple cider vinegar then went onto iodine spray when the thrush progressed to eating their frogs away. One the worst foot there is basically no frog left at all.

No Thrush didn't really work for me- I did hear that Tamorrow (or Tomorrow?) will kill the most stubborn thrush as a last ditch effort. Sometimes thrush can be diet related, like an imbalance in diet can cause it (too much sugar?)
