Magic Cushion Hoof Packing
Great packing material that sticks
I have never packed my horse's hooves, as it was never needed, but recently, I had to. So I got this product and it was great. I have tried a few other products, but this one is the best. Over the weekend when my horse has to sit in his stall, the packing stays tacked up in his hooves (with a thin gauze), protecting him from cracked hoof to pre-thrashy odor to impacted hooves with manure/wood chip bedding. A bit gooey, but has good component to prevent infection and soreness. You should have a disposable gloves and lay a large golf ball size ball on each of 4 hoof size 1 layer gauze, and push it up, with the gauze side away from the hoof, on the center of a cleaned hoof- it will spread into all direction when the horse puts his foot down on the shaving. Pack the end of each gauze in with hoof pick for the perfect finish.

So messy! Wouldn't recommend it...
I DREADED putting this on my horses feet every time I used it because I just knew it was going to get all over me and him and never come off. It worked alright for a 24 hour period after a show but then when it came to removal it got stuck all around his coronet band and I had to make sure I was wearing gloves at all times. One time it got so dry and stuck that I had to continuously shave the hair around my horse's hooves to get it off because nothing else worked... it took about 3 weeks to get rid of all of it.

great product, but messy
I use this packing in my farrier business and have had great success with it, especially in sore footed horses during the dry summer months. It is extremely messy, and gloves are recommended, as it leaves a residue that takes a while to wear off.

wear gloves - not because it stains because I didn't have issues with staining but because it works so well your hand/arm will tingle until you wash your hands thoroughly!

My horse had a very sore foot, grade 3 lame, and after using this for 3 days, he was completely sound. Use rubber gloves and do not get any on your skin or clothes--it will not come off.

Great product for pulling heat out of a foot. Worked great.
