Oakum Strip - 24"
Our 1" round by 24" long strips of Oakum are un-treated, meaning they are dry and do not contain pine tar or any other tar or wax substance. Oakum is used primarily to help hold hoof packing material that does not set-up inside the sole cavity of the hoof. Strands of Oakum are separated and feathered out to form a pad like covering and then put on top of material such as Magic Cushion or Sole Pack, and then a pad is placed over that. The fibers of the Oakum help keep the packing in place so it does not all seep out from under the pad. One strip of Oakum will be sufficient for use on dozens of feet as only a small portion is needed for each foot.
