Why did you choose this?
How do you use it ?
Best Answer: Hi Dawn,
It's really quite easy to use however it depends what you need it for. I use it when my farrier occasionally trims my barefoot horse too much & the result is my horse becomes too sore to walk without limping on hard surfaces. I apply it in his stall for his comfort overnight. I clean his feet really well first then I - while wearing plastic gloves - scoop out the magic cushion and form a small ball. The size is dependent on the hoof- larger than a golf ball but smaller than a baseball. While holding up your horses leg place the ball on frog away from toe- closer to the heel. Then place the heel of your hand - on the ball of magic cushion & push down hard enough to squish the product in to the foot & roll the up the palm of your hand. The product should slightly ooze over hoof & don't be concerned about having a little too much. Then I put a layer sprinkled of the dry stall flooring over the it- we use watered down wood pellets in our stalls. This eliminates the product from coming out by sticking to the floor. Now you can release your horse's leg and his own weight will finish squishing it in his hoof - & ooze out any excess. It stays inside the hoof & hardens overnight- & then he goes out the next morning to his pasture. The product will work its way out so there's no need to worry about removing it. Also, it is antibacterial so if its really wet you can apply this to avoid fungal infections, abscess or thrush. I hope this helps you.
