The shoes have now been on for a week, and they’re holding up well so far. I do see a bit of break away at the heel where it didn’t have a great connection to begin with, and some on the front of the front left hoof. I believe this is due to interference with the other hoof.這可以通過在設定膠水後使用蹄牛奶並平滑標簽來解決。
At this point, here are some tips I would suggest to anyone who wants to try for themselves:
- 在標簽中切割垂直狹縫（以模仿）是值得的11 Finger design). I believe this will allow each section to sit better against the hoof wall and hopefully reduce the peeling I was seeing.
- Work on one hoof at a time during application. I had trouble getting my horse to keep weight bearing on the hind feet while the glue was drying (this may have affected the integrity of the glue connection and might be why I am seeing some peeling). If you do one hoof at a time, you can keep the feet weight-bearing more easily, in my opinion.
- 確保包裹plastic wrap緊緊圍著蹄子。我很難在塗上鞋子後在蹄子周圍留下足夠緊張的包裹。我認為在側麵標簽中切割垂直狹縫將允許更緊密。
