Antifungal sole dressing.
Field Paste cleanses and conditions the underside of the horse’s foot, helping frogs and soles stay strong and healthy.
Its ingredients promote the natural growth of healthy tissue, especially when rubbed well into the surface of the frog. The active agents also help the hoof and frog tissue to toughen without being caustic or damaging.
The thick, paste-like consistency allows Field Paste to stay in the deep grooves of the foot for longer than thinner solutions.

Field Paste is a brilliant antimicrobial anti-thrush paste for horses which are mainly field kept or that have to be turned out on wet or muddy pasture. It has a thick dough-like consistency which offers great ‘staying power’. It remains in contact with the affected areas longer than other thrush treatments and is designed to remain in the collateral grooves, central sulcus and on the sole for the longest possible of time enabling it to have continued effect against microbes. Another great benefit is that this staying power helps prevent mud, faeces and other contaminants coming in contact with the hoof.
Originally developed for use with brood stock that very rarely had their feet picked out, field paste makes an ideal post trim treatment, protecting the newly exposed hoof material with impacting the natural “breathing” process of the hoof. While it has a slightly lower concentration of antimicrobial substances in it than Sole Paint its great staying power means it has a far longer lasting residual effect.All the ingredients in Field Paste are present either for their antimicrobial effect or to improve the consistency and longevity of its effect.Too thick to be painted on, Field Paste should be applied with a gloved hand. For stabled horses while it is often better to use Sole Paint when inside the stable to prevent bedding gets stuck to the hoof it is worth considering applying field paste once a week prior to turnout for an all day deep treatment particularly in wet conditions to be keep mud and muck out the hoof.Key Ingredients:Green french clay – an antimicrobial clay which gives the paste the perfect consistency.Bio-active honey – for its antimicrobial qualities and ability to make the paste sticky.Zinc oxide – a powerful, yet harmless antimicrobial powder.Tea tree oil – an essential oil well known for its bacteria and fungus fighting abilities.Eucalyptus oil – as well as being an effective antimicrobial, this essential oil assists in the toughening of weakened structures.Zinc Sulphate – a powerful antimicrobial which is also used in feed supplements.Using Field Paste:
- Natural long lasting thrush treatment
- Promoting white line health (where the white line is actually degraded to the point of developing a channel or cavity use Artimud or Hoof-Stuff instead)
- Promoting a strong sole and frog
- Maintaining good hoof health
Too thick to be painted on, Field Paste should be applied with a gloved hand.
For horses living out apply a thick layer working into all cravesse and grooves. Repeat once the smell of the essential oils subsides or there is no sign of the paste still on the feet. Once problems subside apply weekly as a preventative in muddy conditions or longer in dry conditions.
If your horse is stabled apply a thin layer when indoors to prevent bedding adhering to hooves alternatively use Sole Paint indoors. Applying field paste once a week prior to turnout for an all day deep treatment particularly in wet conditions to be keep mud and muck out the hoof.
Replace once the smell of the essential oils subsides or there is no sign of the paste still on the feet. Once problems subside apply weekly as a preventative in muddy conditions or longer in dry conditions.
Field Paste is supplied in a 500ml screw top jar.
