[RC] Hoof Armor - sherman

I haven't tried it yet myself. I was hoping David would get the formula
worked out so the heat gun wouldn't be needed. I know they're not very
expensive, but I have so much "excrement" laying around already I just can't
stand the thought of having to buy another tool to keep track of (:<( I've
watched my neighbor apply Hoof Armor after carefully rasping the hoof and
cleaning it up nicely with a wire brush and alcohol, then just a very thin
layer of the Hoof Armor. I think she used latex gloves and rubbed it in. She
did say the hoof prep was very important to get it to stay on.

Let us know if you try it again, Kat, I'd be interested to see if careful
application will make it last a few weeks with your horses and the DG.

Kat, is there any chance that it was still on your
horses and you just couldn't see it?

No.  I checked for that.

Maybe it flaked off from being too thick, rather than wore off?

Possibly, or possibly from improper application.

I haven't given up entirely yet (as I still have some), and I would very
much LIKE to get it to work for me.  It is encouraging to hear that
other people have had success on equally as abrasive of surfaces?
