Equus Hoofcast - 50mm (Small)
Due to new legislation Hoofcast is now only permitted to be applied by a Farrier or Vet.
Hoofcast is a new and innovative product that will help in the treatment of many hoof problems.
Simply add water and apply to hoof.
The Hoofcast wrap is a woven fabric tape which is treated with a water activated resin. Once the hoof has been trimmed and prepared Hoofcast can be fitted. Open the foil pouch, fill with water, allow cast to soak for 10 seconds then simply wrap the hoof with Hoofcast encapsulating the entire hoof. Once this process is complete, after a few minutes the resin will harden and shoes can be nailed or glued directly onto the now hard Hoofcast. Hoofcast can be used on its own or in conjunction with other products.
When can I use Hoofcast?
- Lost shoe and taken half the wall with it!
- White line disease
- Transition from shod to barefoot
- Shelly and cracked hooves
Unlike many other products no special preparation is required prior to application, simply clean the hoof of loose dirt and exfoliation then apply. The hoof can be wet or dry.
Hoofcast is a simple cost effective way to help keep horses in work.
Application by a farrier
With Hoofcast it is possible to nail on to a completely broken hoof. Because Hoofcast is breathable and anti-bacterial it is possible for it to remain on the hoof for the complete shoeing cycle 6-8 weeks. Even though it cures to a robust supportive structure, Hoofcast will flex with the natural movement of the hoof.
Hoofcast can be used with other products. Hoof putty is a two part product when mixed cures to a rubbery supportive pad that will mould to the exact contours of the sole of the hoof, then wrapped with Hoofcast provides a protective, cushioning support which is ideal for laminitic's, thin soled hooves and hooves recovering from abscesses etc.

Used Hoofcast on Saturday, so easy to apply, my poor boy was so sore before the application - I managed to ride him yesterday for the first time in over a week - brilliant!
