Rated 5 out of 5 by from An old favorite I've used hooflex for years and just recently switched to the all natural option. It works the same. I love using this product during a dry summer to keep the horses hooves from cracking/splitting. If you spill a bit on the concrete no need to worry, you wont see a trace of it once it dries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Anything natural is a plus in my book! Even if you get it on the ground by accident. It's gone in no time, leaves no stains. Has no nasty smell and I am not worried if it gets on my hands. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I like this hoof dressing because it's more natural than other products and contains tea tree oil which my farrier recommends. It is not thick and goopy like some other products.
Date published: 2012-09-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff I love that this hoof dressing only has truly natural products in it. Makes me way less nervous when I get it on my hands when applying it. I find that it does a good job helping alleviate my horses' dry hooves....not a deep penetrating conditioner, but a good every day product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seeing hoof improvement already My horse had a ton of cracks on the bottoms of his hooves - this seems to be helping. He also tends to get rowdy when he is turned out and messes up his hooves. I've been using this, and it seems to be preventing some major hoof cracks/tears. I like the consistency of this dressing, it is very liquidy.
Date published: 2012-08-19
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent natural hoof dressing I prefer to use natural hoof products. This one is easy to use & stays nicely liquid at room temp. I don't like that it's primary ingredient is soybean oil. I've also tried the Absorbine natural hoof dressing in spray version, which I liked but it didn't last very long, particularly for how expensive it was. This paint on version is a much better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff, but a little runny This is a great product, especially since we're having a drought right now and my mare's feet are getting overly dry. I like that this is all natural. My only problem with it is that it is quite thin and runny, almost the consistency of water. So it's easy to waste it as it runs off the hoof instead of sticking like a thicker product would. On the other hand, a thicker product won't get into all the nooks and crannies as well. In either case, it's good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Hoof Dressing! This is an excellent hoof dressing! I wanted something that didn't contain harsh chemicals or petroleum ingredients and this fit the bill. Our new mare came to NM from Virginia and the climate is incredibly dry here. Her hooves were chipping and cracking and the coronet band was really flaking badly. I started using this product right after the farrier trimmed her feet and it's done wonders! I only use it on the outer medial and lateral surfaces, but it seems to be making a difference overall. Her hooves are not chipping nearly as much and they're less "porous" looking. I am applying it two to three times a week and it seems to go a long way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helps with chips and cracks in dry conditions My horse lives outside in a dry, sandy paddock, plus he gets hosed off daily after workouts, leaving his hooves even more prone to drying out. When his feet started chipping and cracking just around the edges, I wanted something to help stop it from getting worse. Absorbine Hooflex Dressing goes on easily and soaks in fairly quickly. I use it around the edges before I ride and on the full hoof after a bath, and he hasn't developed any cracks between shoeings this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Dry Hooves I got this for my GRP, who had very dry feet, heels, and frogs. (Albeit very tough, as well, which is good news for me) After just ONE application, they were much more pliable and healthy-looking. I think it will help prevent him getting anymore chips as well. It's super-easy to apply (well, when he's not being stubborn about picking up his front feet, anyway), and dries (well, for lack of a better word--being an oil, it doesn't REALLY dry) within just a few minutes-- maybe around 7, I've never timed it, LOL. To keep your horse's feet supple and healthy, this is the way to go! Especially since it lacks that weird odor that most hoof oils have, and there's no poisonous ingredients such as turpentine, pine tar, etc. And there's also no animal protein, which some brands like Rainmaker use. It DOES have lanolin in it, so it isn't vegan-lifestyle approved, but at least no other creature DIED to try and improve your horse's hooves. (Because, let's face it: if your horse knew where stuff like that came from, I doubt they'd approve either)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hoof oil yet I have tried several different hoof dressings including original Hooflex and rub-on thicker formulas. Hooflex Natural has been the best. It goes on easily, soaks in quickly and makes hooves look great. Whenever I see a special price or shipping offer, I buy multiple bottles.
Date published: 2009-09-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! We love this all natural hoof oil! The farrier says my boy's feet are the best in the barn! I do have to apply it 5-6 days a week, but it is worth it to use a "green" product. My thoroughbred's feet are loving this stuff!
Date published: 2009-07-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Good Hoof Oil With there being so many choices that we have to make in the care of our wonderful horses, using a hoof oil that contains ingredients that I actually know what they are when I read them really means something to me. I am very pleasantly surprised that Hooflex makes a natural hoof oil and that SmartPak has it at such an affordable price. I love it, another choice to feel good about! Ch-eck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wow wow, this is a nice big bottle, goes on so easy and works great, looks great. can't believe I did not find this product or see it in other barns before. it will be a staple in my barn.
Date published: 2009-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product! I have had great luck with this hoof dressing. It is not gooey or sticky and goes on easily. My one horse had a lot of cracking last year and dry hooves. Once I started using this product his feet improved drastically with the new growth. My sister even uses it on her own nails!
Date published: 2009-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural is the best! I was so excited to see an all-natural hoof dressing because I was tired of putting tar and turpentine on my horses hooves. I have been use this dressing once a day and have seen noticebale increases in hoof health. It doesn't work any better than regular hoof dressings, I just like the fact that it is natural. Also, the smallest amount that you can buy is still ALOT and lasts for about 2-3 months if you use it everyday.
