The “universal glue-on cuff system” is US patent pending.
The Series III ™ “universal glue-on system” (patent pending) is designed to allow the farrier to utilize any shoe, any shape, any size, any material (steel or aluminum or ABS). This “system” is attached to a formed/shaped shoe using a “slow-set” ACRYLIC adhesive available from farrier suppliers. Increased reliability (over a “direct glue-on” process) is delivered through the stronger metal-to-metal adhesive bond. The Series III glue-on joint is stronger because you are gluing a metal shoe to the slotted aluminum plate on the cuff. This “metal-to-metal” bond delivers the maximum attachment strength available. When the Series III assembly is cured, it is attached to the hoof in the same way as the regular Sound Horse Series I shoe (see Series I instructions).
After the shoe assembly has been prepared, it is attached to the hoof by saturating the fabric with ACRYLIC adhesive. The shoe is then stretch-wrapped in place for about 10 minutes. The horse is fully weight-bearing immediately after the shoe is applied. Full work can resume within 20+ minutes, however, we recommend the horse stay out of mud and water for 4+ hours. Other than conventional farrier tools, no special equipment is needed to apply the Series I shoes. Everything needed to apply the “glue-on” shoe is packaged in the Sound Horse™ shoe kit.
