'Shoof' is a shoe-for-a-hoof. This product is used both to protect a hoof from injury, and to assist in the recovery of a hoof after treatment. Horse Shoof is a low-cost, highly reliable treatment for a wide range of hoof problems, including: seedy toe, stone bruising, excessive wear, splits, cracks, footrot, penetration, abscesses etc. The open design of the Shoof allows the hoof to 'breathe', which is essential for fast recovery. Horse Shoof is supplied as a kit including copper-sulphate (bluestone) medication and a special bandage. These items have been especially developed to ensure successful treatment, even under extremely unfavourable conditions. (eg wet, and dirty paddocks or yards.) Horse Shoof can be re-used many times with our Shoof Refill-Kit components.
Tubbease was developed in New Zealand by Cambridge farrier Erin Hampson-Tindale. Erin was trying to solve the problem of poulticing hooves without 'stewing' them, as happened with most regular 'sealed' boots he used. So Erin created this rubber-dipped sock which 'breathes' whilst still protecting and soaking the damaged hoof. This 'breathability' prevents the hoof going soft during the treatment period. A thick EVA sole pad relieves pain for the horse and extends the life of the Tubbease'. Various remedies can be used under the sock for ailments such as abscess, thrush, seedy toe, thin sole, injuries, cracks and general deterioration. Dimension is maximum width of hoof that will fit in the Tubbease cup. Tubbease is a Registered Design, No NZ 417646. NB: Tubbease should always be secured with the Velcro strap supplied. A bandage is not suitable or adequate. New straps are available.

(Dimension is excluding tang.)
