Following feedback from Glushu farriers and horse owners we are always looking to improve the Glushu shoeing system. A lot of the feed back we received was that some horses with sore feet found it difficult to hold the hoof up for 5 minutes. Farriers also commented it would be better if the horse could stand for the 5 minutes to speed up the shoeing particularly in cold temperatures.
Taking this on board we developed a "Fast Fix" system (available now from the online store) to be used in conjunction with the standard Glushu process. This additional prep makes Glushu shoeing more hands free, easier and quicker.

From Farrier Adam Bliss:
“I have used this 3 times now and if I’m honest I wouldn’t fit a pair of glushu’s without using it, no more worry about positions or anything solid as a rock in 30 seconds,
The horse I did this on was a 14 year old 16.2 ex racing thoroughbred with chronically poor feet collapsed heels and severe navicular, not only was he perfect as he stands still for me to demonstrate this, the owners haven’t looked back since using Glushu,
He is more sound consistently more willing to go forward and work and above all the quality of his hoof is so much better it’s in measurable,
Myself and the owners now recommend this to everyone we meet with navicular horses.”
