[Histonet] Horse bones

We are trying to section pieces of horse femurs, fetlock and carpal  joints.  
They have been decalcified with either HCl decal or formic acid  decal.  
Before routine processing the bones appear to be decalcified, but  at sectioning 
they are very hard and brittle (even after surface decal) and chip  out of the 
paraffin block.
Any suggestions would be helpful.  A pathologist suggested a soap  soaking 
solution but could not remember the name of the soap.
Help and thank you,
R. Berger, HT
