Valentine's Hoof Oinment, our flagship product, is now available for purchase online. We recommend painting the hoofs with Valentine's Hoof Ointment, both inside and outside, to help replace the natural hoof periople (varnish-like layer), and prevent the hoof from drying out by evaporation. For center or quarter cracks we recommend applying the ointment 7 to 10 days in the crack and around the cornet band. For exteme dry condintions paint the hoof 4 times per week to keep the hoof in good condition. Rainbow Turf Supply has been trusted by horsemen since 1880 and is used for a variety of hoof problems. You can pack the hoof with it and it will not harm the frog or sole of the hoof. If you are looking for a hoof ointment that will keep your horse riding every day rely on the time tested formula of Valentine's Hoof Ointment.
