ICE BALL FOR­MA­TION

EQUUS - - EQ IN BRIEF -

Is there any re­li­able way to pre­vent wet snow from pack­ing into a horse’s shoes? My geld­ing reg­u­larly comes in from the field tee­ter­ing on ice balls that are sev­eral inches thick. I use the claw of a ham­mer to pry them out, which I know isn’t the safest so­lu­tion. A friend told me to try cook­ing spray to stop them from form­ing, but it doesn’t seem to work. What does?
