The ThinLine hoof protection pads have been developed to relieve symptoms of arthritic joint and different hoof diseases. They are great with horses with Navicular and Laminitis. The instructions on how to fit the pads come within the packaging and can be given to the farrier.
Lost Shoe: Duct tape this hoof pad and you will provide comfort and support until your farrier arrives!
Use as frog inserts:
Cut a smaller piece of the ThinLine Hoof Pad for horses to fill in frog area, then use double-sided tape or a small amount of dental impression material to attach the frog insert to the shoe and place on the horse’s hoof. Frog inserts will load while the foot is on the ground and relieve when unloaded.
Use with hoof boots:
Trim the pads to fit and simply place inside boot. Please note that if the hoof boot is loose on your horses hoof, this will greatly increase the wear on your hoof pad.
Use as impact protection pad in combination with another pad (plastic/leather):
Place the slick side of the hoof pad against the other pad and keep the matte side against the horse’s hoof. For optimal results, replace pads at regular shoeing intervals.
Use as rim pads:
Glue the ThinLine Hoof Pad to the horse shoe, then cut around the shoe to create a rim of ThinLine protection
To relieve Laminitis and Navicular symptoms:
Use double-sided tape (ex. carpet tape) and stack the ThinLine Hoof Pads at the heel.
