Hoof-Stuff is an antimicrobial hoof pack for plugging holes and cracks in equine hooves.
Containing only naturally occurring ingredients Hoof-Stuff is non-toxic, safe and easy to use. Its ability to stay in crevices due to its fibrous content allows it to act for longer than other packs and potions. Hoof-Stuff has been found useful for toe holes, white line cracks, central sulcus crevices, abscess cavities, grass cracks among other issues. Its active ingredients act not only to eliminate detrimental microbes but also support natural healing and restoration of healthy tissue.
Honey makes fantastic base for this product increasing its antimicrobial powers and aiding adhesion into the hole!
Hoof-Stuff is advised for use in deeper, tighter holes in the hooves where it is deemed fabric would stay. With shallower holes Artimud is advised instead.
Hoof-Stuff contains the following ingredients:
- Unpasteurized Honey - For its antimicrobial action and also to give the product a good, sticky consistency.
- Zinc Oxide - Again for its antimicrobial nature and ability to aid the hoof regeneration process.
- Natural Fibres - To keep the other ingredient in place in cavities and to provide 'beneficial pressure' to the inside of them and promote natural regrowth of healthy tissue.
We do not add anything to bulk the product out or make it cheaper/easier to produce. Every ingredient has a job - to work to solve the problem that it is there to deal with.
"Hoof-Stuff works like a bomb. I've tried ‘everything’ on my horse's central sulcus crack, but Hoof-Stuff closed it up in a few weeks. And it's not like I applied it every day, maybe once or maximum twice a week. This horse has now got a frog again! I recommend your products to everyone"

"Hoof-Stuff closed my horse's central sulcus cracks in all 4 feet in just 4 weeks. Amazing Stuff!"
Sam Newland EET, Cambs.
"I have been having great results with your Hoof-Stuff and Artimud with closing up the central sulcus’ as well as keeping cracks clean. I’ve not seen something work this well and this quickly…providing the clients are using the product as prescribed!"

"I have found Red Horse Products extremely effective. Hoof-Stuff especially is the best thing I have found for central sulcus cracks. Sole Cleanse is brilliant for disinfecting smelly feet whilst aiding healthy tissue re-growth"
Jenny Hall BE, Olympic team vet
"I was lucky enough to be given the end of a pot of Hoof Stuff by a friend to try out on a horse with chronic foot odor problems. The change was so dramatic after 10 days (bearing in mind that we have been fighting this problem for years with a variety of noxious chemicals and only managed at best to keep it from worsening) that my farrier is now desperate to get hold of it too."
Gill Tibble, Spain
How to use Hoof-Stuff - it's not that hard!
Flush the crevice/ hole with Sole Cleanse and clean out as much debris as possible. Break through the wax seal on the Hoof-Stuff and draw out some fibers with a clean hoof pick. Use the hoof pick to stuff the pack into the crack, not pushing hard if there are signs of sensitivity/ it is extremely deep. For central sulcus cracks it can be helpful to leave a 'tail' out the back of the hoof to aid easy removal.
Remove the pack with a hoof pick after 24 hrs, if it is clean replace it with a new pack and leave for longer next time. If the pack is getting dirty then you should replace it more often.
The interval between replacements depends very much on the specific condition and environment.

Do you have to remove the pack and clean the crevice daily or does product stay in for certain time ?
The length of time the product stays in for varies (dependent on environment and the specific condition) but generally if the pack is staying well in the crevice then replacement is not necessary until it discolors. Generally people find they have to replace it every few days to weekly. Once the crevice has had its initial flushing it will likely not be necessary to clean it out again if it does not get dirt in it again (i.e. if the pack is staying in place).
If you remove the pack and it is still bright white and clean then you likely do not need to replace it as often. If it has become discolored then you should replace it more often.
Should I use Hoof-Stuff or Artimud?
Hoof-Stuff is generally used where the crevice is deeper and able to retain a fabric based pack. As a general rule deep & narrow = Hoof Stuff - shallow & wide = Artimud.
As a test see if damp cotton wool will pack into the crack, if it will Hoof-Stuff will probably work best, if not opt for Artimud.
