Re: Really Hard Hooves - Soak First?

Josephine Trott

I don't bother with soaking but just spray their feet with 50% vetrolin linament mixed with water a few minutes before trimming.  Saves me from popping a hernia and tearing arm muscles trying to close nippers on otherwise rock hard feet and doesn't rust the tools. I learned the hard way not to use a spray containing vinegar before trimming feet.
