I love the Forshners hoof packing and have run out. I have checked two tack shops and looked online at Smart Pak. Is it possible the company is no longer making it? If not, what is a similar product?? I use it mostly at shows to pack feet overnight. Thanks!
I could not get it, either. Word is that is they are having to re-formulate the "recipe" so it is not currently being made. They have not remade any, yet. What is out there is what is left. It is now very hard to find (believe me!) I was told by a vendor that THEY had been told that there was some ingredient in it that has been used in making meth and so Forshnor's now can't get it or use it something to with that. They could be wrong, so if you hear something else let us know!
haven't had any trouble finding it but did hear a rumor they're discontinuing it. I went through a bunch of it a few years ago in the drought. Everybody had sore feet with the hard footing and water restrictions wouldn't allow us to water the rings.
After waiting to see if the manufacturer came back with Forshners, Horseshoes Unlimited in Gill,MA 1 413 863 2443 has begun making a very similar product in 1 gallon buckets (approx 7.5 lbs) and 1 qt tubs(approx 2lb tub).
The Forshner's is on a manufacturer's back order, I too was looking for it & tried about 10 sites before I found it. Saddlesource.com sent me to Rick's Heritage Saddlery in West Chester,PA they even have a bigger size than 14 pounds which I would recommend if you are having trouble getting it. My Dad kept his for years in the barn with no problem when he went to use it. You can also consider making some if it gets too hard to find, it is only pine tar & vaseline, if you google the ingredients it even gives you the amounts. Hope this helps.
