How to apply a Glushu glue on horse shoe.

GOOD HOOF PREP IS CITICAL TO THE SHOE REMAINING SECURE FOR THE COMPETE TRIM CYCLE 6-18 WEEKS.

 

  • TRIM and FINE RASP the hoof as normal – Ensure all parts of the hoof where the Glushu will fit have been rasped and dust free (INCLUDING THE HEELS).

  • When using Shufit Glue, express a small amount of glue until it is DARK GREY before using.

  • Make sure the glue is warm (25-30 degrees) and that the hoof is dry.

There are 2 methods of fitting Glushu glue on horse shoes.

FAST FIX - For horses who cannot hold their feet off the ground due to soreness. For colder temperatures where holding the hoof for minutes is difficult.


You will need per pair of Glushu:
1 x 150ml tube Shufit acrylic glue
1 x pack fast fix Glue and activator spay ( will last 4-6 pairs)
1 x hoof pick to help pull back the cuffs whilst backfilling with acrylic glue
1 x Clear roll of hoofwrap

STANDARD - for horses who do not have any special needs when standing for shoeing. For use in temperate climates.

You will need per pair of Glushu:
1 x 150ml tube Shufit acrylic glue
1 x Clear roll of hoofwrap

Application Instructions:

Step 1

Fast Fix - put a medium bead of CA Glue around the inside base of the shoe and spray the bottom of the hoof with the primer/activator.

Standard - Put a medium bead of warm Shufit or acrylic glue around the inside base of the shoe and inside surface of the cuff.

Step 2

Holding back the side of the cuffs, slide the shoe onto the hoof, aligning it with the frog and adjust to the correct position.

Fast Fix - HOLD FOR 30 SECONDS

Standard - PROCEED TO STEP 4

Step 3

Fast Fix Only - Once the CA glue has set, place the hoof on the ground and backfill the cuff with warm Shufit or Acrylic glue.

Step 4

Use clear hoof wrap to hold the shoe and cuff to the hoof wall while the glue is curing.

Fast Fix - place the hoof on the ground and leave for a suggested 10 mins before removing the hoof wrap.

Standard - Hold for a minimum of 5 mins.

 Your horse will be able to walk around but ensure you allow the glue cure for a further hour before riding.
