UK Wool

Sustainable

Plastic-free

Compostable

Made of 100% sheep wool felted onto a jute hessian carrier material, our naturally antibacterial, comfy hoof pads are an excellent choice when it comes to hoof-care. Perfect for protection, as part of a poultice or just to increase the comfort of an existing boot or cover – these natural wool hoof pads are just fantastic.

Wool has a range of natural properties that benefit our equine friends.

Benefits of wool hoof pads over synthetic versions are:

  • Wool is environmentally-friendly & sustainable
  • Wool is naturally antibacterial
  • The wool moulds to the frog, providing support and comfort
  • Wool is naturally breathable and hygroscopic, wicking away gunge and helping with the healing process.
  • Wool is surprisingly durable and long-lasting
  • Wool hoof pads tend not to twist or slip
  • The wool pads are reusable
  • The wool pads are compostable
  • The wool pads are anti static

How to use:

Simply insert the pad into the boot, like an insole. For heavier horses or additional padding, place two layers in the boot. They can be added to as the pad squashes down.

The pads can be cleaned in warm soapy water, then left flat to dry. If they’ve been used on an infected hoof then please dispose of them. They can be composted or made into a mulch mat for the garden.

Each pack contains: two pads, each approx. 15mm

At the core of Chimney Sheep is our Community Interest Company, Buy Land Plant Trees (BLPT). For every purchase you make with us, 20% of the profit facilitates the planting of trees on agriculturally poor land in Cumbria.

We set up BLPT in 2019 as a ‘boots on the ground’ tree planting initiative. The company is run by us and the tree planting is done by us. We do it to help you and us to reduce our impact on the planet. The trees we plant reduce CO2 output as well as contribute to the reduction of flooding and the creation of habitats for wildlife.

BLPT isn’t a tick box exercise nor a distant and detached carbon offset company. In fact, this is as much part of our business as the products we sell and is an integral part of our ethos. We are big believers in the phrase ‘think globally, act locally’ and want to make a genuine difference

Great product

Great pads rally improved the comfort levels for our transitioning horse. Don’t leave in the sun to dry the birds will steal them 😂

Great pads - used in scoot boots

Love these , offer just enough protection to soften landing but also flatten meaning that the boot fit isn’t compromised. Used with a flat footed pony that usually feels the stones , really noticed a difference . They didn’t move because they settled into the shape around the frog/collateral grooves and they wash and fluff up again well after use .

Work great in scoots

Have done a lot of miles in these in my boys scoot boots. They're still dense and working well, maybe around 8mm now well used so still functional. They fluff up quite well with a wash in a bucket of water to get any stiff mud off and then air dry

Moulded to frog and hoof nicely and still intact after wearing 24/7 for 3 days.

Used in equine fusion boots - worn 24/7 with an hours break in the morning and an hours break in the afternoon - pony kept on a track system. Really happy with results the pads conformed to the hoof and wicked moisture away - no sweaty area around the frog when pads removed. Have just washed the pads and they have fluffed back up will be happy to re-use them. Pony wasn't exercised in them.

Compacted really quickly

Used in scoot boots- trashed after 6km on the road - very disappointed
