my horse has lighter hooves, and it is dry outside, so i started using hoof oil everytime after i ride. I pick out his hooves and clean the dirt of the front of them, then i put hoof oil onto the bottom of his hooves and on outside. so, i have 2 questions converning hoof oil -- does hoof oil have any affects on shoes? Kai ( my horse) has shoes on both his front hooves so i don't want to be putting hoof oil on them if it does something to the shoes. Also, is it possible to put too much hoof oil on your horses hooves?
