Tubbease Hoof Boot
Tubbease™ was developed in New Zealand by Cambridge farrier Erin Hampson-Tindale. Erin was trying to solve the problem of poulticing hooves without ‘stewing’ them, as happened with most regular ‘sealed’ boots he used.
So Erin created this rubber-dipped sock which ‘breathes’ whilst still protecting and soaking the damaged hoof. This ‘breathability’ prevents the hoof going soft during the treatment period. A thick EVA sole pad relieves pain for the horse and extends the life of the Tubbease™.
Various remedies can be used under the sock for ailments such as abscess, thrush, seedy toe, thin sole, injuries, cracks and general deterioration.
NB: Tubbease should always be secured with the Velcro strap supplied. A bandage is not suitable or adequate. Replacement straps are available.
