Hoof Freeze was designed for the tender footed horse including competition horses. Many owners do not have the opportunity to enjoy their horses simply because the horses are tender footed. In addition, some horses are sore after being trimmed or shod. Hoof Freeze is a great product for this type of ailment. (Sole Pack Hoof Packing will also give relief in this case.) Hoof Freeze is an excellent hoof hardener in just one or two applications.
