Artimud is a clay based antimicrobial hoof putty.
showed that although
Hoof-Stuff was brilliant in deeper cracks and
crevices in the hoof it was unable to stay in shallower cracks and on the
surface of the hoof . Red Horse came upon the idea that since the only thing that
consistently stuck to the areas of the foot we were trying to protect was in
fact mud! So they tried to create something similar that had a beneficial rather
than detrimental effect - thus
Artimud was born.
Artimud can be smoothed, rolled, squashed, spread and moulded to stay in the area it was put so its active antimicrobial and protective agents can allow the area to heal itself up naturally.
We have found it useful in the packing of many of the same cavities as Hoof Stuff (although not as effective in deeper, anaerobic cracks) but mainly in shallower white line cracks, frog clefts, external cracks etc.
Use Artimud in shallower, more open holes/ cracks and Hoof-Stuff in deeper, tighter ones.
Artimud is now commonly used as a packing material for use under stick on shoes and pads. Where it helps keep soles and frogs in great condition where they would normally get damp, smelly and soft.
