Our OTTB had thin walled, brittle hooves and routinely lost shoes, tearing off chunks of his hoof wall each time. We added Biotin Plus to his feed and got improvment. We would still see cracks. Keratex REALLY helped. It's expensive, but you use very little. Our farrier was amazed at how quickly his hooves improved. I don't know that it will moisturize your horse's feet, but it will help the keratin in your horse's hoof grow together more quickly to close cracks and it will help harden his feet.
