Artimud is a clay based antimicrobial hoof putty.

Trials showed that although Hoof-Stuff was brilliant in deeper cracks and crevices in the hoof it was unable to stay in shallower cracks and on the surface of the hoof . We came upon the idea that since the only thing that consistently stuck to the areas of the foot we were trying to protect was in fact mud! So we tried to create something similar that had a beneficial rather than detrimental effect - thus Artimud was born.

Artimud can be smoothed, rolled, squashed, spread and moulded to stay in the area it was put so its active antibacterial, antifungal and protective agents can allow the area to heal itself up naturally.

We have found it useful in the packing of many of the same cavities as Hoof Stuff (although not as effective in deeper, anaerobic cracks) but mainly in shallower white line cracks, frog clefts, external cracks 

Use Artimud in shallower, more open holes/ cracks and Hoof-Stuff in deeper, tighter ones.

Artimud is now commonly used as a packing material for use under stick on shoes and pads. Where it helps keep soles and frogs in great condition where they would normally get damp, smelly and soft.

Artimud contains:

  • Green french clay - an antibacterial clay which gives the putty the perfect consistency.
  • Bio-active honey - for its antibacterial and antifungal qualities plus ability to make the putty sticky and pliable..
  • Zinc Oxide - a powerful, yet harmless antibacterial powder
  • Eucalyptus oil - as well as being a highly effective antifungall, this essential oil assists in the toughening of weakened structures.

All the ingredients in Artimud are there to either have an antibacterial/ antifungal effect or to improve the consistency and hence the longevity of its effect.

We have cut tea tree oil out of the formula as in very rare occasions horses can have an allergic reaction to it. In anaerobic situations it can also detritmentally effect the action of beneficial bacterium!

"I have been having great results with your Hoof-Stuff and Artimud with bacteria and fungus and closing up the deep central sulcus’ as well as keeping cracks clean. I’ve not seen something work this well and this quickly…providing the clients are using the product as instructed!"
Jessica Goonan, USA

"My horse is prone to smelly feet and white line crevices. For peace of mind I ensure I have Arti Mud and Hoof-Stuff to keep these problems under control."
Jan W, Oban.

"I have tried many other products to help with white line cracks and foot odour, but nothing has worked like yours"

Heather Craig, Isle of Kerrera.

Do you have to remove and clean crevise in toe daily or does product stay in for certain time ?

The length of time the product stays in for varies (dependent on environment and the specific condition) but generally if the Artimud is staying well in the crevice then replacement is not necessary. Generally people find they have to replace it every few days. Once the crevice has had its initial flushing it will likely not be necessary to clean it out again if it does not get dirt in it again (i.e. if the pack is staying in place).                                                                      

Should I use Hoof-Stuff or Artimud?       

Hoof Stuff is generally used where the crevice is deeper and able to retain a fabric based pack. As a general rule deep & narrow = Hoof Stuff, shallow & wide = Artimud.
As a test see if damp cotton wool will pack into the crack, if it will Hoof Stuff will probably work best, if not opt for Artimud.
