Can anyone tell me of a good hoof supplement for our horses hoofs? We live in Penna. and the winter has been extremely hard on my horses front hooves, lots of chipping! Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you !!Dawn

I am so glad, we are doing the barefoot trim and they are so much healthier than last winter. I have them on Farrier's Formula. Will try to find Equipride that Darlene uses.Thank you so much. We are having our second snow storm in Pa. Blizzard Watch for today and we don't have school till next Tuesday. Do you have snow in Tennessee? I'm ready to ride!!!

Dawn, everything Darlene said about her horses is true!! I have know her horses their whole lives(except older mare-known her over 10yrs). Jim Apple has really turned things around for them. Especially her big gelding. He is like a different horse.

Hi Dawn, I have found that chipping is generally the hoof's way of getting rid of excess wall. Does your farrier/trimmer keep a nice rolled or beveled edge to the hoof wall? That helps!

Hi Dawn,

I am lived in Pa. for 38 yrs. the winters are rough!! You may want to feed biotin supplement with their feed. I kept shoes on all yr round... (I loved the snowy rides). One thing I did read was to spray cooking oil spray into their hooves & they won't get all of the icey snow balls built up in their hooves. It really works!!! I hope it helps your horses... Good Luck!
