Seattle wet and mud keep my mostly-TB horse's hooves soft. Using Keratex helps. The tall skinny bottles fall over easily, so get a bigger container to set the bottle in. After I emptied one bottle, I just pour a little from the new bottle in to the old bottle. That way when my horse inevitably knocks it over I do not lose much.

My horse has 3 white hooves and his hooves were neglected for 2 years by his former owner. As a result, they were chipped and cracked so badly that we couldn't even put shoes on the back hooves for nearly 9 months. However, with regular use of Keratex, his hooves have gradually improved and continued to harden. He is able to hold his shoes and no longer has cracks and chips in the hoof wall. My farrier is a very "down to earth" old-school guy who doesn't have much patience for "miracle cures". However, he swears by Keratex and strongly encourages all his clients to use it. He doesn't sell Keratex so has no vested interest in the company.One 250 ML bottle will last me over 6 months with daily use. I keep the box so that I can store the little brush that comes with the bottle. For best results, use at least every other day -- preferably every day. This is particularly true in the spring and summer if your horse spends a lot of time turned out in wet dewy grass.As the saying goes -- "no feet, no horse" and if your horse has weak hooves, Keratex will make them stronger.
