What’s Leg Paint?
Leg paint is a time-honored way to promote the healing of hardworking horses. Harold White’s leg paint is specially formulated to stimulate blood flow and drive toxins away from the body. And, because the formula is deeply penetrative, it heals outer ailments such as scurfing while simultaneously healing deeper conditions such as bucked shins and bog spavin. It’s perfect for all breeds and ages of horses.
Why Leg Paint?
Horses are unique animals requiring unique treatment. Racing horses and working horses are especially prone to ailments that are a direct result of their exposure to the elements and strenuous movements. However, while smaller animals may be put in splints or forced to rest, horses heal faster with greater blood stimulation. Leg paint is a medicinal treatment that is applied to the horse and allowed to penetrate into the leg, promoting rapid recovery and continued support.
What Can Harold White’s Leg Paint Treat?
Our formula is especially effective in the treatment of:
bog spavin – swelling of the hock joint
bucked shins – an enlargement in the front legs, specifically the front cannon bone
curbs – swelling in the distal plantar
osselets – arthritis in the front legs
pop knee- enlargement of the front carpal joints
ringbone – osteoathritis in the pastern or coffin joint
splints – bony lower leg swelling
All are painful conditions that greatly affect the movement, overall health, and wellbeing of your horse. Left untreated, these conditions will worsen and lead to more serious conditions as well as greater pain. Leg paint is an easy, safe, effective treatment that can be applied by anyone–no veterinary license required.
What Sets Harold’s Leg Paint Apart?
We love horses and want to make their lives as comfortable as possible. Our paint is derived of quality ingredients specially formulated to be both effective and gentle. It’s impossible to overdose and the paint may be left unwrapped.
How To Apply:
The paint should be applied to a clean, dry leg, and used in isolation, as the use of other medications may trigger a chemical reaction that can cause scurfing. If the leg is already scurfing, a wrap may be used once the paint has dried. Apply in broad sweeping motions using a soft brush. Reapply as often as the hair growth denotes. If your horse is lighter-colored, dilute the formula before applying.
