Spice tends to be high strung in unfamiliar situations. At shows, she would spook at everything from trailers to other horses. In the ring, she was tense and always ready to bolt. I was really getting discouraged, so I started looking for calming supplements.
We had our last dressage show this weekend at Southern Comfort. All my horses were very good, but I have to say, they are getting tired. This has been a long winter for them, especially the young ones. They need a break!
How does Hoof & Health support hoof integrity differently than a biotin-based hoof supplement? Does it have any additional benefits?
My mare, Yvette, has always had notoriously sensitive skin. After a particularly hot and sticky summer in Alabama, she was left with a few flaky patches of skin and missing hair, and her skin looked very irritated.

Some of my horses have cracks in their hooves. I feed alfalfa and grass hay twice a day and they also receive ADM Patriot 12% once daily. My horses are off duty all winter meaning I do not ride at all in the winter. What are they lacking nutritionally assuming this is a nutrition issue?
March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb…but in between it can be hot, cold, wet, dry, and everything in between. These great blanketing options will ensure your horse is ready, whatever the weather.
