Hoof Oil (in metal can)
Grooming Equipment

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Fiebing
Model: Hoof Oil (in metal can)
Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: During a particularly dry spell last summer, we decided to look around and try a different hoof moisturizer then the one we normally use (Absorbine Hooflex). We bought Fiebings Hoof Oil in a small rectangular metal can (I think it was around 950ml). It came with a brush. It was around $15.00 Cdn.

Likes: Not much! The can itself was bright yellow, which was eye-catching, but that was about it.

Dislikes: The metal can idea doesn't work, especially when the brush that comes with it is so bulky that it barely fits through the opening, where it was designed to go. The hoof oil itself was extremely runny and more times then not, I'd probably get more oil on the ground, or over the can, than on the horses hoof (even when I was being careful). I could've poured some of it into a container that was easier to work with (maybe an old margarine tub, for example, with a wider mouth and more stable base than the original container) but it wouldn't be as convenient than having just 1 container. The oil itself had a horrible smell. I guess I'm used to the smell of Hooflex, which isn't that bad, but this was disgusting.

Quality: The container was sturdy, but since it was built tall and narrow, I can see it tipping over easily. The brush that came with it didn't seem to absorb any of the oil. As soon as you took it out of the can, it would immediately shed the oil making it hard to apply any to the hoof. When I was able to put some on our horses hooves, it didn't seem to stay as good as other brands of oil.

Summary: Disappointing. We switched back to Absorbine Hooflex quite a while ago. I suppose this would be okay in a pinch, but it's not something I'd readily buy again.
