Reviews
Birdsall's Farrier Barrier is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results! I’ve been trying everything for a crack in my horses hoof that has lingered for over a year. Florida weather is hard on hooves with all the moisture. The bacteria gets inside the hoof and keeps it weak but after using this product daily for one month, I can truly see the difference! The crack is still there (farrier said 2-3 more cuts might do it), but I finally have hope! I’ve tried a few products and still use Karetex once a week, but this is actually hardening AND destroying harmful bacteria growth. Excellent results.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cannot recommend to fight thrush First, be aware this product is green and kind of resembles the slime from Ghostbusters. I bought it to keep tenderness out of my horse’s hooves and keep his hooves free of infection without hardening them as much as my usual Venice Turpentine does. I trim my own and a little less hard was appealing, as was the idea of one product to address both hoof soreness and hoof disease protection. Unfortunately, while using this product he got thrush and the beginnings of white line. Which he never had using either SteriHoof or a homemade concoction called Pete’s Goo. It seemed to do an okay job of keeping his hooves from being tender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just started using this about a month ago to help "normalize" hooves, frog and sole. This year has gone from too much rain, dew to dry summer to dew again this fall. My barefoot horse has had fungus or tenderness on hard surfaces despite farrier care, so bought this to fight fungus, and keep feet pliable but not sensitive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this a month ago but I’m already seeing a difference in my horses’ hooves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic in a bottle Bought this a month ago and can already see an improvement. Horse was dealing with abscesses, change in footing (moving barns) and the south’s transition from spring to summer (really wet or really dry). I love this stuff and can tell a difference in his feet already. I love that it protects against dewy pasture days and when it’s dry. Recommending this to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works! We're all using it now! My horse has been on day turn out 365 days a year because his feet do not hold up in night turnout with our dewy pastures. He is semi-retired now and we decided to try night time turnout so he could be with his pasture mates. Knowing his feet fall apart I spent an afternoon reading hoof product descriptions and decided to try the Birdsall's Farrier Barrier because it specifically mentioned dew. Luckily, the day it arrived the farrier was at the barn and was impressed with the ingredients...Long story short, we applied it everyday for 7 days and then applied it every two or three days since then. To date, my horse has made it through two six week farrier cycles without losing a shoe! This is a horse who's feet crack and 'crush' at the cleats after prolonged periods in wet grass! Disclaimer: I am using the Farrier Barrier in conjunction with Life Data Hoof Clay. We seal the nail holes and areas around the hoof with the clay after shoeing prior to applying the Farrier Barrier. That hoof clay is awesome too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her feet look great! My trainer started using this product a couple of times on my ottb mare’s feet during the lock down. I was so impressed with how nice her hooves looked when I finally got to see her! I have used Keratex and Rainmaker in the past but I have switched to this for now. It is a bit expensive but a little goes a long way.

Date published: 2019-09-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for every horse owner Farrier Barrier was recommended to me by a previous farrier to correct severe thrush that a new horse arrived with. It has not only cleared up the thrush but helped keep my horses feet happy and healthy. I swear by this product for both Florida’s rainy season and dry season. It protects, heals, and conditions hooves all in one simple application. I’m so glad that SmartPak now sells this!
