    It's expensive on the front end, but a bottle lasts a long time. For 1 horse, getting it on the hoof wall of 4 feet 2-3 times a week, a bottle could last almost a year. That's $0.11 a day. Cheaper...

    My barn was finished over a year and half and I can safely (and with a sigh of relief) say that there is nothing that I miss.
