~ common questions ~


 

1. How do you determine which side of the Shoe Pad to apply to the hoof?

This is based on user preference. You'll notice that one side of the pad is textured while the other side is smooth. We recommend applying the textured side of the pad so that it comes into contact with the hoof. We believe that this reduces movement of the pad against the hoof.

2. What makes a horse a candidate for the Flip Flop?

The most common cases Flip Flops are applied with are: sore heels, sheared heels, negative palmar angle and quarter cracks. We have also seen success using Flip Flops with horses who have challenges with interference. 

3. What does the writing on the Flop Flop & Shoe Pad mean?

Each of our Flip Flops and Shoe Pads have a date stamp & initials. This identifies them as a flat or a wedge form, in addition to indicating their hardness.
