Joseph Lyddy Farriers’ Choice protects against moisture and keeps hoof pliable to prevent cracking/splitting of the wall, sole or frog of the hoof. The grease will not seal or clog the pores. The citrus fragrance has built-in insect repellent and softens, heals and stimulates normal hoof growth. For easy application apply with a brush. You can apply to the frog and sole to remove bacteria and slime from underneath. Farriers‘ Choice also protects against wet weather by creating a waterproof seal on the hoof.
