A nice mud for the legs

In many stables, after the effort, clay is applied to the limbs of the horses. There are those who prefer to let it dry in the open air and those who prefer to leave it damp by covering the legs with newspaper and then wrapping them. But what exactly is the clay and why is it used?

The qualities of clay in the aesthetic and therapeutic fields have been known since ancient times, even on human beings. Several studies have verified the astringent and anti-fatigue properties of clay, especially when it is combined with other active ingredients such as essential oils.

Veredus developed Cool Clay, a clay based on Kaolin and Dead Sea Salts, with strong osmotic properties. In the special composition formula there are also extracts of Arnica and other essential oils, useful for their soothing and toning properties. Other components provide excellent protection against fungi and bacteria.

Applying Cool Clay is very simple and also pleasant because of the scents it emanates in the stable: let's take a little clay in hand and spread it on the clean leg, even against the grain so that it penetrates deeply. Try to cover well the affected tendons and joints by massaging them gently. We can repeat the operation on all legs.

At this point we can decide whether to let it dry and remove the next day with a good brush or whether to cover with newspapers and bandages to keep the humidity and then wash off the clay with water after a few hours.

In both cases we will notice the effects produced by this practice.

Cool Clay is easy to clean and also for this reason it should not be missing in any stable.
