Using hoof oil or ointment is a bit controversial. At best it does nothing beyond making the hooves look nice. Some people feel it prevents the hoof from absorbing necessary moisture, some feel it seals in moisture. Talk to your farrier to help you decide. Apply fly spray or sun screen if conditions require. I use All Natural Horse Spray made with Young Living Essential Oils. (check blog for all natural horse spray recipe). Some horses object to the hissing sound of sprayers, so go slowly and desensitize your horse gradually, perhaps using a bottle of water to start.
I Hope you have a nice Day!
