ISP Hoof Wonder™ for your horses’ hooves...
Healthy Tubules = Healthy Hooves
When ISP Hoof Wonder™ is massaged into the hoof wall,
the special hydro-blend base releases vitamins A, E, and
K, with minerals, anti-oxidants and natural fats into the hoof wall for a
Nature designed the hoof wall to protect the inner,
weight-bearing structures of the hoof. The tubule matrix in the hoof is
responsible for maintaining the moisture balance and transporting a complex
mixture of proteins necessary for a healthy hoof wall.
To see what the tubule matrix looks like, the next time
your horse’s hooves are trimmed, look at the hoof side of the trimming. In a
healthy hoof, you will notice a number of moist, oval tubes and the connective
tissue between the tubes. This is the tubule matrix, which is the hoof wall.
Lymph fluid, containing a complex mixture of proteins,
generally thought to be water, is transported by the tubule matrix
throughout the hoof wall.
When the hoof is trimmed, the tubule matrix is exposed,
this allows the lymph fluid to leave the hoof and sole.
As the lymph fluid leaves the hoof, a protective barrier
is formed to reseal the tubules, stopping the moisture loss and preventing the
environmental toxins from entering the hoof. This is a naturally occurring
process, as the tubule matrix constantly supplies lymph fluid to the outer wall
of the hoof , for moisture, proteins and to flush toxins out of the hoof wall.
To understand what happens when the tubule matrix is
damaged or impaired, take the trimming from your horse’s hoof and put it in a
safe, dry place. The next day, you will notice that the hoof trimming has begun
to curl, crack and dry out. This is because the lymph fluid is no longer available
to the hoof trimming.
The tubule matrix is easily damaged by the following:
conditions (too wet or too dry)
riding, showing , racing, trailering or
long periods in a stall which increase the stress on the tubule matrix.
