Applications

Let's look at some of the applications, but underline that there can be many others dictated by the V / S fantasy:

Loss of an iron
It happens both in the countryside and before a difficult trial and where our tension is maximum. Do not worry, nothing is lost with our product! Raspare, to clean the nail, It must be dry! In the container mix Hoof-it one by one, obtaining a semi-thick mixture. Apply the resin both on the iron surfaces and on the base in the part towards the iron. Apply everything with the spatula, trying to be sure that the whole surface is covered. Apply the iron so as to immediately push it firmly. He is working on the ground and raising the other for about 3 minutes. Repeat the barbette with a hammer. Prepare another dose of resin and when it is the right consistency pass all the wall up to the iron included. For further safety apply an insole (see paragraph "insole") underneath on the sole, which will avoid further movements. When you get home, try again.


Splits on the wall and weakened wall
Clean the surface well, use a file, rasp and even sandpaper Mix the liquid and the powder making a very soft solution that can be applied with a brush. Apply it in layers with the brush on the wall, gradually to obtain a stratification of at least 3 mm. Dry for about two minutes You will be ready with a wall supported by Hoof-it to ride your horse or leave it free in a paddock without the fear that it breaks completely the wall. Sometimes you also need an insole to better finish care (see Insole). Create an insole to protect the sole. After nailing or fixing with Hoof-it the iron, even with the iron already blocked, clean the sole well with an iron brush Mixing Hoof-it creating a dense but brushable solution. With a spatula or brush apply Hoof-it in layers on the sole making sure that it goes under the iron. To create more layers until 3/4 mm, push well with moistened fingers to better adhere. Due to its characteristics, Hoof-it will let air and humidity pass by not suffocating the sole but making it less sensitive to foreign bodies such as stones and other. The "pump" activity of the frog will not be diminished but protected by the elasticity of Hoof-it After three minutes ready to ride or leave your horse in box or paddock.


Fix an iron with the resin 
Scratch by scratching the wall slightly so as to increase the adhesive surface. Place the orthopedic shoe or the plastic iron you want to fix Pass the nail with acetone or ether to remove the grease and dirt. Prepare a mixture of Hoof-it in proportion 1 a 1 Put a little on the sole and a little on the "iron" Place everything, wait two minutes. Rasp where necessary removing the excess of the glue. Apply the new solution of Hoof-it with a brush Ready to ride it 10 minutes.


Show Feet 
Well iron the horse. Clean the wall also with sandpaper Mix a solution of Hoof-it 1 to 1 Apply a light film with a very fine brush. Wait for it to solidify and revise with very fine sandpaper. Put a layer of light resin over the whole foot. Apply products that give a color to the resin or only of the polish.


Reconstruction of the Wall
Scratch and clean the nail Nail the iron as much as possible. Clean with acetone or ether. Prepare the mixture of HOOF in a ratio of 1 to 1 Place the resin inside each crack, pressing well with a spatula If the part to be rebuilt is very large use a net and apply the resin in several layers with a brush Press the product with moist hands so that it adheres perfectly to the wall and shape it. Let it dry 2 minutes. Rasp and smooth. With a brush apply a superficial layer of Hoof-it to well present the foot Ready to ride or put the horse back in the paddock.


Bristles
Pass the edges of the bristle with a cutter, or dig with a tool. Pass with the rasp the wall Make the resin always in relation 1 to 1. With the spatula fill the slot by pressing well, you can also use antibiotics mixed with the resin. Wait about two minutes that the resin has solidified. Roughen the area to improve the adhesion of the next layer. Apply more layers of resin with brush on the whole wall to increase the containment action More layers give more strength to the action of the resin.The horse so supported can return to work.

Loss of the wall
Clean and scrape the nail. Create the resin by mixing powder and liquid in 1 to 1 size. With wet hands and with a spatula fill the missing parts but apply a plastic net. Shape them all the way you want. After about two minutes nail the iron when dry. Let stabilize while you finish the other Raspate feet and finish as you wish. Apply a small layer of resin with the brush for aesthetic reasons. Ready to return to do your own business.

A stronger hoof
Scrape the wall. Create the resin by mixing powder and liquid in 1 to 1 measure. Apply it with a layered brush on the whole foot capsule Leave to dry for 3/5 minutes. When it is dry it is dry and raspable Ready to enter its usual work. This application It is suitable for all horses to which we want to preserve the hoof capsule.

Let's see how to prepare Hoof-it

For the preparation of Hoof-it follow these simple instructions.

The foot can only be treated if:
• Absolutely dry, better than the horse is put in a fresh chip or sawdust for a day
• No fatty or similar substance has been applied for at least a week
• Please note: even if in 98% of the horses there are no problems of adhesion to the resin, in some subjects for the particular composition of the wall could, after about 5-6 days, start a certain detachment of the applied resin.


The best adhesive performance is obtained: 
Rasping and then increasing the adhesive surface of the wall or the hoof all. Cleaning with ether or acetone the foot before application. Spreading the resin one by one.

The application can be done with: Spatula, Brush, Moistened hands


Hoof-it can be: 
scratching, cutting, nailing, working as a normal nail Hoof-it has the characteristic to let the wall swell, it is used in human medicine and it is not toxic, and many other qualities that you can experience.


How to prepare:
take the glass provided, pour a little powder inside, pour the same volume of liquid and mix with the spatula included in the package, until you get a yogurd-type egg; depending on the need to spread, spatulate etc. N.B. the longer you wait the denser the preparation becomes; the time to dry depends on the higher external temperature is first it solidifies, the colder it is, the less it solidifies: in winter it is advisable to keep the resin at ambient temperature
