HOOF GLUE AND REPAIR
HOOF GLUE AND REPAIR
Applying shoes does not have to be with nails only, adhesives are popular options as well. Some horses will not tolerate nails being driven into the hooves or the hoof-wall may be damaged or too thin to support the nails. We stock trusted brands to ensure you can work with confidence. We have two main types of adhesives, acrylic and urethane.
Acrylic can be used for anything from repairing small quarter cracks to reconstructing an entire hoof wall, yet flexible enough for easy filing, shaping, and even nailing.

Pour in Pad Material
Pour pads are used for comfort, protection and therapeutic support. It bonds directly to the sole and frog and can be used by itself as an instant pad, or as a packing underneath a pad. Pour pad material limits exfoliation, promotes sole depth and makes the bottom of the hoof impervious to injury from sharp objects. Available in 200-210ml cartridges or a 250ml tube depending on the brand.
