Nutrition Tip

Consider the role of nutrition in your horse's hoof health. If he has chronically thin soles and weak hoof walls he might benefit from getting a supplement containing biotin, methionine and/or zinc – nutrients that encourage good hoof horn growth. The results probably will be slow – expect to wait 6 to 9 months to really notice a difference – but the pay-off might be a horse with healthier feet.
