Instructions for Use and Safety Information — Video

Please observe the safety instructions provided by the manufacturer of your hot air gun when welding and take all necessary safety precautions. This includes, along with your personal protective equipment and good workplace organization, adequate ventilation when welding with plastics. Ideally, work outdoors.

Welding Instruction

The colored strips are plastic welded to the rear edge of the horseshoe using hot air.

First, fit the horseshoe to the hoof as usual. However, keep in mind that the colored strip extends the horseshoe backward. Take a moment to watch our short video on plastic welding a colored strip onto a horseshoe.

Tips and Tricks

At this point, we would like to provide you with some additional information regarding the application of our colored strips.

Extend a Horseshoe with Colored Plastic Strips

Naturally, the colorful plastic strips primarily serve aesthetic purposes and personalizing the horseshoe design. By combining them with colored Wolf Busch® glue-on tabs, you can add an extra touch of color to the hoof, enhancing its overall appearance.

But colored strips are not always just about appearance! We have also heard of cases where they have been used to minimally extend a horseshoe. The colored strips, with a thickness of about 3mm, can be helpful for minor adjustments to the horseshoe.

If you need to modify the horseshoe more extensively, our extensions might help you.

Colored Strips and Pony Horseshoes

The colored strips are suitable for adding a bit more color to all horseshoes from size 98mm.

For the smallest horseshoes among our range, they are unfortunately not suitable without manual adjustments. The reason is that the horseshoes for the very small hooves are thinner than the regular horseshoes. The exact thickness for each horseshoe size can be found in the product description of the horseshoes.
