Hoof Disinfectant and Conditioner
Farrier’s Finish® is a liquid hoof topical that combats the “hoof eating” bacterial and fungal invasions which cause white line disease, thrush, and poor hoof quality. Farrier’s Finish® not only protects and disinfects the surface of the hoof, but it also penetrates deep within the hoof wall to combat microbes at the foundation of the invasion. It is also a hoof conditioner that supports correct hoof capsule moisture balance in excessively wet or dry conditions. Farrier’s Finish® is the perfect hoof topical for stabled horses due to the Yucca plant extract ingredient that binds the ammonia within excrement and reduces its harmful effects.
Yucca plant extract is an ingredient in Farrier’s Finish®. Stabled horses are often subjected to stalls containing varying amounts of excrement. Urine and feces produce high levels of ammonia which is detrimental to the tissues of the hoof capsule. The yucca plant extract binds with this ammonia, reducing its harmful effects.
Unlike other hoof care products, Farrier’s Finish® does not utilize harmful tar or petroleum based chemicals. Horse’s hoof, tough as it may appear, is made from the same proteins as your own skin. In fact, a horse’s hoof is 95% protein. Many chemicals used in commercial hoof products can denature and thereby destroy the protective function of this protein. Formaldehyde, turpentine, pine tar and acetone will harden the hoof and make the hoof shine; however by chemically “cooking” the protein the hoof loses some of its elastic qualities and ability to absorb shocks. Shock absorption is a primary function of the hooves! A hoof wall without elasticity is more prone to cracking, and a hoof wall unable to “breathe” naturally cannot maintain healthy moisture content. Farrier’s Finish® preserves proteins and supports elasticity of the hoof wall.
Use it in conbination with Life Data® Hoof Clay (art.: 747-0001-084) and give your horse absolutely healthy hooves!
Available in a 16 oz (473 ml) bottle.
