Red Horse Products - Sole Paint. Sold in one size of 500ml only
A paint on sole conditioner especially helpful for thrush in stabled horses but can also be used on horses that live out.
Red Horse Products is a small company researching, developing and manufacturing solutions to age-old health problems in horses and humans. Their range of hoof care products really put Red Horse on the map, gaining world-wide acclaim. Due to their high quality and concentration, added to their unique and innovative nature, Red Horse Products work well, fast and for a long time.
Sole Paint has a somewhat sticky consistency similar to another Red Horse product, HoneyHeal, but is thin enough to be painted onto the underside of the hoof and frog. Red Horse designed it when they realised that HoneyHeal, despite not having specific antifungal ingredients was nearly as effective at treating thrush as Sole Cleanse Spray due to its ability to stay in contact with the treatment area longer (and the honey in it!). However it didn't go very far at all so they needed another product that worked out less expensive to use but even more effective.
Due to it being a paint Red Horse can make it with a much higher concentration of Zinc Sulphate, Honey and add Zinc Oxide, Eucalyptus and Tea tree oil to give it a very powerful effect. They recommend Sole Paint for stubborn thrush infections that can be treated at least weekly.
We find using the Lincoln Hoof Oil Brush With Container is a great way of applying the Sole Paint, as you can squeeze some Sole Paint out into the container and then paint onto the hoof.
Green french clay - an antimicrobial clay which gives the putty the perfect consistency.
Bio-active honey- for its antimicrobial qualities and ability to make the putty sticky.
Zinc oxide - a powerful, yet harmless antimicrobial powder.
Tea tree oil - an essential oil well known for its bacteria and fungus fighting abilities.
Eucalyptus oil - as well as being an effective antimicrobial, this essential oil assists in the toughening of weakened structures.
Zinc Sulphate - a powerful antimicrobial which is also used in feed supplements.
All the ingredients in Sole Paint are there to either have an antimicrobial effect or to improve the consistency and hence the longevity of its effect.
