Horse Hoof Treatment 


Does your horse need an all natural, formaldehyde free hoof product to soften hooves before trimming and encourage healthy hoof growth™

Like Butter is a blend of herbs for horses traditionally used to soften hard or tough hooves prior to trimming. Originally formulated for a European vet who wanted a nontoxic formaldehyde free alternative to conventional hoof treatments, Like Butter has been used by vets and barefoot farriers for over 15 years as an effective pre trim. The ingredients have the ability to rapidly permeate the hove's cell walls to soften an moisturize the tissue for a few minutes, then harden up again.  Painted on the coronet band, it encourages healthy hoof growth. Sprayed on a tender pink muzzle, it also soothes sunburn and helps to keep the skin strong and healthy. Can be safely used daily on the skin.  We can assure you , this is the best product on the market today to soften your horses hooves. Like Butter is for topical use only and can be beneficial for:
