When I got Eskimo, he was barefoot and his hooves would get sore after long rides or work on rough ground. I tried hoof boots and other hoof supplements, but nothing seemed to work. Then I gave SmartHoof a try.

I would like to know if Mare Plus is dangerous to feed to a mare newly pregnant. It expired in July 08, is in SmartPaks, and has been kept cool and dark. I would expect it to be not as potent but is it okay for the first trimester?

I rescued a horse about one month ago, later to find that he has a degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis injury from racing. Is there anything I can do for this horse so that he can be started back in light riding in approximately six to 10 months?
