Question
hi sir. can you suggest me the best medicine that protects the heels of a horse from cracking and getting damaged? my stable boys apply caster oil for the hoof though you suggested sunflower oil.

Answer
HELLO ROBERTS...

YOU Answered your own question !!!

I suggested Sunflower oil because of it's thinner viscosity.
YOU MUST read my answers and Limit your questions to what is pertinent to the subject.

For years I answer many questions which takes up alot of my time. I do this "freely" SO that
people will have accurate information from experience and facts !!

It's NOT supposed to be "my opinion" or the opinion of my colleagues.
Please... in the future, I cannot answer questions that are just my opinions.
IF I suggest something, it come from years of my education.

Thank You For Your Time !!
