March 19, 2010, Newsletter Issue #370: Applying Hoof Polish B-4 Horse Shows

Tip of the Week

When using hoof polish, apply when readying for the ring; after all warm-ups. Each coat of polish takes 15/20 minutes to dry thoroughly. For an added gloss in painting the feet, apply a coat of clear hoof gloss over top of the black gloss, once the black gloss has had time to thoroughly dry first. Always paint white hooves with the clear, even if they are two or multistriped. Apply black to the black areas, and clear to the white areas. This really does present a more natural effect.
