Farrier’s Finish is a liquid topical hoof dressing that combats the “hoof eating” bacterial and fungal invasions which cause white line disease, thrush, and poor hoof quality. It is also a conditioner that supports correct hoof capsule moisture balance in excessively wet or dry conditions.
Yucca plant extract is an ingredient in Farrier’s Finish. Stabled horses are often subjected to stalls containing varying amounts of excrement. Urine and feces produce high levels of ammonia which is detrimental to the tissues of the hoof capsule. The yucca plant extract binds with this ammonia, reducing its harmful effects.
Hoof cracks, old nail holes and poor hoof wall structure can allow microbes to invade resulting in crumbling hoof walls or white line disease. Thrush is a bacterial infection of the sole and frog often associated with wet environments.
