Problems it Addresses
Water, mud, feces, debris and other material from the environment can get into old nail holes, hoof cracks, white line and other areas of the hoof.
There are many hoof packings on the market, but some contain caustic and harmful ingredients. That is why the manufacturer may urge you to wear gloves and to keep the product away from horses’ soft tissue and your skin.
Another concern when it comes to hoof packings is whether they are sticky enough to stay in place during dry and wet conditions.
Unlike other hoof packings, Life Data® Hoof Clay is non-caustic and stays in place for several days.
Life Data® Hoof Clay is a natural, easy to handle, and sticky clay that can safely be applied with your bare hands. It uses a unique blend of ingredients that doesn’t burn or destroy soft tissue. It stays within wall cracks, wall defects, old nail holes, and hoof wall separations for extended periods of time.
In barefoot horses and wet muddy conditions, an effective amount of Life Data® Hoof Clay may stay in the sulci around the frog and on hoof wall defects for about 2 to 3 days; whereas in dry conditions, it may stay for approximately a week.
