Tubbease was developed by Shoof International Ltd following the development of the concept by local farrier Erin Hampson-Tindale. Erin was trying to solve the problem of how to soak or poultice a hoof without 'stewing' it - as happened much of the time with other regular water-proof boots. With Tubbease, a variety of treatments, poultices or bandages can be applied with the hoof, or liquid treatment* can simply be poured in or over the whole sock once it is on the hoof.
The 'breathability' of the Tubbease sock allows the liquid to enter and soak the hoof, but then also to drain and dry out. Tubbease is an excellent vehicle for treatment of injuries and diseases such as abscesses, thrush, seedy toe, thin sole, cracks and fissures and general deterioration of the hoof.
NB: Tubbease should always be secured with the Velcro strap supplied. A bandage is not suitable or adequate
How to measure for Tubbease

Tubbease can also be fitted over horseshoes.
Please note: The Tubbease dimensions shown below indicate the maximum internal diameter of the Tubbease cup not the diameter of the hoof.
