Life Data Hoof Clay

Life Data® Hoof Clay® is a pliable antimicrobial clay which easily packs and remains in place within hoof defects, old nail holes and cracks. Life Data® Hoof Clay® provides continuous long term protection against a wide spectrum of bacterial and fungal invasions which cause poor hoof quality, wall separations, crumbling horn, white line disease, and thrush.

Life Data® Hoof Clay® is non-irritating and is safe to apply without wearing gloves.

Problems it Addresses
White Line Disease is due to a combination of bacterial and fungal organisms invading the middle hoof wall. Hoof cracks, old nail holes, white line separations and other hoof wall defects allow these “hoof eating” microbes to gain access to the nutrient rich middle hoof wall. The low oxygen environment creates an ideal site for these organisms to multiply and weaken the hoof wall structure, leading to additional defects and collapsing hoof horn.

Thrush is a microbial invasion of the sole and frog tissue often leading to tender feet, heel pain and lameness.

The Solution
Life Data® Hoof Clay® is an easy to apply and long lasting antimicrobial hoof packing for wall cracks, wall defects, old nail holes, hoof wall separations, and white line disease in barefoot or shod horses. Life Data® Hoof Clay® is also effective as a sole packing for thrush.

A safe to handle and non-caustic formulation containing silicon (clay), grain extract, tea tree oil, iodine, and yucca extract.

Available in an 8 oz. (0.5 lb. / 227 gram) wide mouth jar.

Farrier's Finish Ultimate Hoof Protection

Farrier’s Finish® is a liquid topical hoof dressing that combats the “hoof eating” bacterial and fungal invasions which cause white line disease, thrush, and poor hoof quality. It is also a conditioner that supports correct hoof capsule moisture balance in excessively wet or dry conditions.
Yucca plant extract is an ingredient in Farrier’s Finish®. Stabled horses are often subjected to stalls containing varying amounts of excrement. Urine and feces produce high levels of ammonia which is detrimental to the tissues of the hoof capsule. The yucca plant extract binds with this ammonia, reducing its harmful effects.

Problems it Addresses
Hoof cracks, old nail holes and poor hoof wall structure can allow microbes to invade resulting in crumbling hoof walls or white line disease. Thrush is a bacterial infection of the sole and frog often associated with wet environments.

Many commercial hoof products address these problems, but they often use chemicals that denature and destroy the protective function of the hoof. Formaldehyde, turpentine, pine tar and acetone will harden the hoof and make it shine; however, they cause the hoof to lose some of its elasticity, shock absorption, and its ability to allow oxygen to pass into the hoof capsule. A hoof wall without elasticity is more prone to cracking, and a hoof wall unable to “breathe” naturally cannot maintain healthy moisture content.

The Solution
Farrier’s Finish® contains a unique blend of ingredients that defends against hoof-eating microbes while maintaining proper elasticity and shock absorption of the hoof wall. Farrier’s Finish® not only protects and disinfects the surface of the hoof, but it also penetrates deep within the hoof wall to combat microbes at the foundation of the invasion. Unlike other hoof care products, Farrier’s Finish® does not utilize harmful tar or petroleum based chemicals.

Available in a 16 oz (473 ml) bottle.
