WHAT SIZE PFW SHOULD I USE

2" width (Black) - good for the pony/smaller hoof with approx inch coverage of sole and wall or the larger hoof needing less support

3" width (Green) - good for the medium sized hoof and for a weak hoof capsule requiring greater coverage. Opportunity to cover great sole area and wall

4" width (Purple/Pink) - a standard good for the larger /draught sized hoof, and for a weak hoof capsule requiring greater coverage, inserting pads, keeping a loose shoe in place or as a temporary replacement if a shoe has been lost

The PFW can also be used without adhesive or PFW anchors. This is particularly useful for the horse who may have difficulty elevating any limb due to arthritis or general discomfort, pathology etc., and the application needs to be completed as quickly as possible. Following the same application method - ensuring you still stay well below the hairline at the heels and at least an inch below the coronary band - you simply take the PFW higher up the wall of the hoof at the quarters and toe, utilising the hoof shape to help keep the PFW in place as you apply. In this particular instance it would be worth considering a wider width of PFW.

This application is best suited for the horse that is suffering from very poor hoof structures and will be kept out of a wet or muddy environment and with limited turnout.
