These make her stomp, so as recommended by a farrier I put her on a hoof supplement called "Horse Shoers Secrete" but it had alfalfa in it which made my usually calm mare EXTREMELY wonky. Which I had enough trouble with when she's in season. Farrier told me to change it to Horse Shine (which I'm allergic to YAY) This has given her an even better coat then what she already had and seems to have strengthen the hoof wall (less chips and break off pieces). But now this supplement makes her feet grow like Crazy. Four weeks ago her feet were professionally trimed. 2 not 3 not 4 TWO weeks later her hooves were flaring again and with her stomping she's managed to break pieces off.
Now when she had them done, I went over her feet with a fine tooth comb (i know nothing about how they do the feet other than filing and trimming but I know nothing if I had to do it myself) I know what I am looking for even thickness, concave sole, clean frog ect ect Her feet were PERFECT (at to me) I'm thinking I need to learn at least how to file them but have No idea where to start....
Any help out there from the community about how to start going about learning, I really do not want to have to bring the farrier down every two weeks for 30 bucks a crack. Good price, but not when its every two weeks -__- anyway her feet are terrible and Imma have to have the farrier back out.
(She's on the supplement Horse Shine, plus I use conditioner on her feet to since its been so dry out, the conditioner is the same brand as the first supplement. It works and doesn't smell like bad BarBQue sauce (lol)
