Developed by a farrier to treat common hoof issues. Using Farriers' Fix under the pads helps to prevent thrush and other bacteria from forming. By painting the sole and frog and saturating the packing with Farrier's Fix, the oil will feed into the hoof rather than wick it away. Leather pads do not breakdown as fast when saturated with FarriersA Fix. And FarrierAs Fix works well with many poultices and packings.
