Product Profile

Forshner’s Hoof Packing

 

June 2011 issue

    

 

      Forshner’s Hoof Packing, a farrier’s favorite for more than 25 years, has been named an Official Product of the American Farrier’s Association (AFA). Forshner’s Hoof Packing joins Farnam’s Horseshoer’s Secret hoof supplement and topical line, an Official Product of the AFA since 2004, in this special designation.

      Forshner’s Hoof Packing is the original ready-to-use emollient hoof packing product. The brand is a well-known staple in the hoof care industry. Forshner’s Hoof Packing is used by high performance horse owners and farriers alike for packing hooves after a strenuous workout or for use under pads before shoeing.

      Forshner’s Hoof Packing packs into the hoof cavity to aid in preventing hardened frogs, contracted heels and hoof dryness. The original ready-to-use hoof packing contains vital oils and other essential ingredients to help retain moisture and keep hooves pliable. The thick, emollient formula keeps working the entire time it’s packed into the hoof. Forshner’s brand won’t dry out in the hoof or in the pail.

      Packing a hoof is as easy as 1-2-3 with Forshner’s Hoof Packing.

 

      Step 1: Make sure the hoof is clean and dry. Take a small amount of Forshner’s Hoof Packing (about the size of a golf ball) and work it in your hands until pliable.

 

      Step 2: Pack firmly around the frog.

 

      Step 3: Continue to cover the sole of the hoof completely. Cover with paper or straw if needed, or farriers may cover with pad before shoeing. If packing hooves after strenuous workouts, remember to remove Forshner’s Hoof Packing with a hoof pick before the next ride or exercising.

      Horse owners should be sure to ask their AFA certified farrier for his personalized coupon book containing approximately $70 in savings on many popular Farnam Horse Products including Forshner’s Hoof Packing – $4 off the 4-pound size and $10 off the 14-pound size. Offer is good where Farnam products are sold.
