Hoof Supplements

Hoof Supplements

It is important to take care of your horses hooves, particularly during the cold, wet autumn/winter weather conditions. There are some great hoof supplements available to help you to look after your horses hooves.

Some horses seem to be particularly prone to short hoof wall cracks known as Grass Cracks, which extend upwards from the outer edge of the sole (the solar surface), or Sandcracks which go downwards from the coronary band. Cracked hooves do not always cause lameness, although they do open the hoof up to risk of infection and Sandcracks (a single, vertical, full-thickness hoof wall crack) may result in instability of the wall, pinching of sensitive tissues and lameness. Cracked hooves may also create problems when trying to keep shoes on.

Horse hoof supplements containing Biotin and Methionine, and the regular application of Cornucrescine to the coronary band will help to prevent cracked hooves, and Keratex products, especially the hoof putty, are useful for repairing cracks.
