Hoof Armor was first designed simply as a horseshoe alternative that would protect the bottom of the hoof wall from wear…like a horseshoe. The advantages would be lighter, more flexible and nothing to fall off. David and Brenda soon realized that it was the sole that really needed protection and Hoof Armor became hoof sole protection. Soon, users were applying Hoof Armor to the frog and then the heel bulbs, still as abrasion prevention, but with the intention of protecting the hoof while it naturally grew stronger and tougher. Like humans, healthy feet help make the rest of the body function better. One requirement of Hoof Armor was to be non-toxic for horses and appliers. The same base adhesive formula is typically used in contact with food. Kevlar is added for strength and abrasion resistance and is inert and safe.
The Hoof Armor® Starter Kit contains a 4:1 dispenser, a 50 ml cartridge of Hoof Armor, eight (8) turbo mix nozzles, two rubber gloves and detailed written instructions.
The starter kit provides enough product to coat approximately eight (8) (saddle horse size) hooves.
