Strengthens, nourishes and protects the hoof.
What is HoofPRIME?
HoofPRIME is a dressing formulated to penetrate the hoof wall and provide nourishment to the inner and outer structures of the hoof wall, ensuring that strength and flexibility are maintained.
Incorrect hoof care could eventually lead to lameness in your horse. To help prevent poor hoof health giving rise to such problems, HoofPRIME Hoof Dressing has been formulated to penetrate and nourish your horse’s hooves. The large number of high quality oils, phenol, venice turpentine, iodine and other natural ingredients in HoofPRIME help ensure your horses hooves remain healthy.
In dry conditions the hoof becomes cracked and brittle. The regular use of HoofPRIME keeps the hoof strong and flexible. This flexibility allows the hoof to more fully absorb the shock from exercise on hard ground and therefore helps to protect the leg from injury.
In wet conditions the hoof may absorb too much water and become soft. HoofPRIME’s oils act as a water barrier to help prevent this, ensuring the hoof remains in good condition.
In addition, this superior hoof dressing need only be applied every second day cutting your costs and your time in half.
How does it work?
During the hot, dry conditions of summer, the hoof has the task of cushioning the impact of a moving 500kg horse. A combination of hard, unyielding surfaces and brittle hooves provides a recipe for subsequent hoof damage and potential lameness. Hooves that are not maintained properly can dry out and lose flexibility, as well as become prone to conditions such as contracted heels, navicular syndrome (continual impact of the toe on hard surfaces) and sand cracks.
Autumn and winter are arguably the harshest times of the year for many reasons – temperature variations, wet weather, muddy conditions, less sunlight, no time. We all know the hassles of living in cold, wet weather. While we tend to focus on protecting our horses’ bodies with multiple layers of rugs, the hooves bear the brunt of harsh winter conditions. The hooves may absorb more water and become soft/pliable. This provides an opportunity for organisms to break through the protective barrier of the hoof wall and result in infection.
