Tubbease was developed by Shoof International Ltd following the development of the concept by local farrier Erin Hampson-Tindale. Erin was trying to solve the problem of how to soak or poultice a hoof without 'stewing' it - as happened much of the time with other regular water-proof boots. With Tubbease, a variety of treatments, poultices or bandages can be applied with the hoof, or liquid treatment* can simply be poured in or over the whole sock once it is on the hoof. The 'breathability' of the Tubbease sock allows the liquid to enter and soak the hoof, but then also to drain and dry out. Tubbease is an excellent vehicle for treatment of injuries and diseases such as abscesses, thrush, seedy toe, thin sole, cracks and fissures and general deterioration of the hoof.
*An easily-concocted remedy is two tablespoons of zinc-sulplate (available at vet or chemist) mixed into one litre of water. Epsom salts is another option. Apply as pictured.
NB: Tubbease should always be secured with the Velcro strap supplied. A bandage is not suitable or adequate. Replacement straps are available.
Our Tubbease Sole Insert is a simple disc of relatively-soft EVA material designed to be placed inside the Tubbease before application to the hoof. This insert cushions the hoof, reducing impact shock for very tender hooves. The insert is not intended for heavy or extended use.

To use Horse-Slips™, cut off the length required and ensure the hoof is well prepared, clean and dry. Fill the moulding cavity with glue and press onto the hoof. Let horse stand quietly for 24 hours. When correctly applied, Horse-Slips™ should remain in place for 4-6 weeks. Once removed, any remaining product or residue should be rasped off. One Horse-Slips™ coil should treat 4 or 5 hooves.

These are quality buckets from Little Giant, USA. The great feature of these is the flat back. This means that the bucket can be hung anywhere with a simple hook, or nail, or by using the specially-designed Little Giant wall mounting steel bracket. The flat back allows the bucket to be used as a feed or water bucket, hung simply and easily off the ground. Use different colours for different animals or feed contents. The optional handle grip - supplied in pack of 3 only - makes carrying full buckets a breeze. Bucket capacities 8 litres and 19 litres.
“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.
