A new hoof packing product — Magic Cushion— has been launched by W. F. Young Inc.

The product, designed to cool and cushion bruised soles and sore feet, is part of the Hooflex hoof care range.

It can be used on shod and barefoot horses and its sticky, spongy texture enables it to mould to the horse’s sole. One application lasts up to 48 hours.

“Magic Cushion is a highly respected product among farriers and we are pleased to be able to make it available to consumers through our regular distributors,” said Rachael Holdsworth, European marketing manager.

Magic Cushion is a natural, capsicum free product and does not contain any prohibited substances.
