    Re: [RC] Ice in hooves - Maureen A. Fager

    "I think that you could spray WD40 inside the hooves will keep the ice from balling up."

    I tried that once--it was the worst!! The ice stuck to the bottom of the hoof, balled up faster and was more difficult to remove. Don't use WD40 for this, it does not work.

    I have friends who use those rubber half pad things put on the hoof when the horse is shod, sorta like a pad, but made just for keeping snow out the hoof. They really like them and feel they work well. Can't remember the name of the pads though.

    Reno, NV
    (Who doesn't worry about ice in the hooves anymore since I came back to Nevada :-)
