Success Gluing on a Shoe With Adhere

on Wed, 02/26/2014 - 18:14

This is a shot of a shoe glued on with Adhere 7 weeks after application.  The horse was turned out 24/7, in extreme cold and snow which then turned into mud and back to snow. Notice the tight bond to the hoof wall after all of this time and weather.  The key to successes here was extra drying time.  The foot was dried for 1.5 minutes instead of the normal 30-60 seconds. This reduced the moisture level by 50% on the hoof, allowing for a much stronger bond.
