Using Equinell Hoof and Mane Oil on hooves
Clean the foot thoroughly, especially the grooves on and around the frog, and the white line. If the horse reacts from pain, do the best you can without causing more pain than necessary. It is better to leave debris in place than to distress the horse. Beginning at the heel, dribble Equinell™ Hoof and Mane Oil into the groove in the center of the frog. Drip it in slowly until a small amount appears at the tip of the frog.
Apply a small amount to the grooves on either side of the frog. If the grooves are too deep to see the bottom drip it in slowly near the heel, until a small amount appears at the tip of the frog. Otherwise the goal is to lightly moisten the area.
Apply a thin line to the white line, all the way from the heel bulb to the other heel bulb, allowing a little to run inside the bars.
With a zig zag motion, apply a small amount to the sole. You do not need to cover every tiny area of sole, and you only need enough to moisten the surface.
We suggest placing a drop or two on the ergot, as you apply to the hooves.
Equinell™ Hoof and Mane Oil is best applied to dry feet. If there is visible moisture on the surface of the foot, penetration will be poor. Clean the feet and allow the horse to stand on a dry surface until the feet are dry.
