Anyone have any favorite hoof packing? I came across lots of choices- just wondering if anyone has any suggestions! Also curious how often you pack, if you do. I have a mare I'm treating for some contracted heels :/ She's definitely been on an upward turn since getting a new farrier and treating the root of the problem, but after doing a little research it seems like it would be another way to keep her comfy.

The barn I work at and the several farriers at the barn use magic cushion, seems to work pretty well if she is sore.

The packing I choose depends entirely on why I am packing. For example if I want to support the frog for example I will use a supportive material such as equipack, or dental impression material under a pad. If I am medicating for soft soles or thrush I may use Magic cushion or Hawthorne's sole pack with oakum, under a pad.
