What Kinds of Hoof Dressing Are There?
There are as many types of hoof dressings as issues with hooves. Centaur Forge carries formulas that remedy cracks, splits, moisture loss, and even assist with lameness. There are several common ingredients found in many hoof wall dressings:
Turpentine-- True turpentine comes from pine trees and is extracted in a similar manner to maple syrup. It's then mixed with rosin (a resin). You'll find turpentine or resin in many hood dressings.
Pine Tar-- With its antibacterial and fungicidal properties, this ingredient helps restore and retain moisture. It's an anti-inflammatory agent, which is also used for humans.
Beeswax, Petrolatum, Tallow-- These heavier ingredients form a thick waxy layer over the hoof to block moisture loss. But they can also lead to buildup, trapping dirt, and softening the hoof if left on for too long.
Lanolin and Other Moisturizers-- It's difficult for most moisturizers to penetrate hooves, but lanolin can be useful around the coronary band and heel bulbs You'll find combinations of these ingredients, among others, in many of the best hoof dressing formulations.
With Centaur Forge's wide variety, you'll find the right product for your horses' needs.
