Yes! When applied correctly, Hanton Horseshoes last as long as traditional nailed-on shoes for horses kept on a regular shoeing cycle.
We recommend using methyl methacrylate (acrylic) glues such as Hoof Life, Equilox, or Grand Circuit. Farriers have found this type of glue to be the most successful with Hanton’s application system. Polyeurethane glues such as Adhere can be used and farriers who are familiar and comfortable with these glues have had success using them to apply Hanton Horseshoes. Therefore, we recommend using the glue you are most comfortable with.
Hanton Horseshoes come with a pair of shoes, four blisters, one mixing tip, toe tape, and rubber gloves. You will need to purchase the glue and stretch wrap separately to complete the application process. For a tip on applying both shoes with one mixing tip, check out our How-To Videos on our website.
Application of one pair of shoes takes approximately 1.8oz of glue to fill the blisters. Some additional glue will be used when the tip is charged. To charge the mixing tip, pump the glue onto a piece of disposable material until you see the two colors start to come out together. You do not want to begin filling the blister before the two colors come together or the glue will not set up properly.
Yes, the plastic blister remains on the hoof. The blister is perforated to allow the outside edge to be removed, leaving the tab and glue covered. The plastic remaining on the hoof helps to reinforce the glue holding on the tab and also allows the glue to reach its full curing time.
No, you do not have to use the mixing tip that is provided with the shoes. If using another tip, take extra precautions that the tip fills up the hole in the blister and is not inserted all the way to the hoof. If the tip is too close to the hoof when the glue is pumped into the blister, it will cause the blister to come away from the hoof.
Another option to use if you don’t have a glue gun is a 60cc dosing syringe. You will need two 2oz glue containers for enough glue to apply the shoes. Mix the glue according to the directions, place in the 60cc dosing syringe, insert into the blisters and fill.
