EQuine Healthy Hooves Oil by Feelgood Health

EQuine Healthy Hooves Oil is a soothing, nourishing natural oil formula to help support healthy hooves.

What is Equine Healthy Hooves Oil?

As the old saying goes, “no hooves, no horse.” The horse hoof is a very important structure surrounding the distal phalanx of the 3rd digit of each of the four limbs of the horse, covered by complex soft tissue. The horse hoof bears the full weight of the limb and so the strength of the hoof (for both wild and domesticated horses) is crucial for horse health. The hoof is made up by an outer part, the hoof capsule and an inner, living part, containing soft tissues and bone. The specialized structures of the hoof are the wall, the sole, the frog and periople. Not all horses have the same amount of periople and dry hooves tend to lack this substance. Although it may seem it, the horse hoof is not a rigid structure. It is elastic and flexible and when loaded, the hoof actually changes its shape. The hoof mechanism ensures healthy blood circulation into the hoof. The wall doesn’t exfoliate at all – it constantly grows downward and self-trims by ground contact in wild and feral horses. Solar, frog and periople material grow outwards and exfoliate at the surface by ground contact and wearing. Front and hind hooves are identical in the foal but differ visibly in the adult horse. Slow changes in hoof shape occur under any consistent change in the horse’s movement pattern.

 

In the domesticated horse, movement and usual ground hardness are not enough to keep walls and the frog trimmed. A horse owner can also scrape off the dead sole. There is a lot that can be done naturally to keep hooves healthy. It is a good idea to pick up your horse’s feet regularly and inspect them. Check for loose clinches – this is usually the first sign that a shoe is going to pull. Watch out for hairline cracks in the hoof -especially if your horse has been standing in water or mud. Always clean off slough around the coronet, as this is a sign of dryness.

 

EQuine Healthy Hooves Oil is a soothing, nourishing natural oil formula to help support healthy hooves. EQuine Healthy Hooves Oil may be used at the first signs of cracked hooves – or it can be used regularly in a maintenance program to promote nourished, soothed hooves. A simple rubbing of this oil into the hoof twice daily ensures natural support of healthy hooves. EQuine Healthy Hooves Oil contains no parabens, sodium laurel sulphate or harmful petrochemicals, and can be applied easily, with no mess or fuss!

Directions:

Dispense a generous amount of oil onto a small sponge or soft cloth and rub into the hoof 1 – 2 times daily.
