Re: Fwd: RC: Re: Equi-Pak
Try www.anvilbrand.com. There are other
companies that sell it also. You can check them out at www.horseshoes.com. It's pretty
pricey at about $25 a tube and you need to purchase a special applicator gun
which costs about $50 or $60. Perhaps your farrier would be willing to buy
the gun and carry the Equi Pak. However, if it's something you would be
using a lot of, it's definitely worth the cost.
P.S. We are currently experimenting with a new
product that shows great promise....use it in place of shoes, for hoof repair,
perhaps gluing on shoes (not sure about that yet) and it sets in about 30
seconds. Hard as a rock (ok, as a hoof!). We have used it in
place of shoes on a horse that could not tolerate nailing and tends to not be
able to stand long enough for the glue ons. She has coffin bone
fractures. I am thinking it might be wonderful for lost shoes at a ride or
for people who don't want steel and would like the benefit of "synthetic"
without nails. This stuff is TOUGH. I will report back soon...we are
trying it on one of our horses and will be doing some miles to see how it holds
up. Nice thing is that even if it wears you can rasp it to make a clean
surface and apply another layer. So far, it is pretty neat stuff.
I'll let ya'all know!
