Well, since moving to a new barn, my mare's feet have really deteriorated. They were always not so hot (tend to grow quickly, but flare/crack/break easily. I've not put shoes on her since she's not in work and was doing fine with regular trims with me touching up in between. But lately they've gotten much worse. Some farriers and vets she has seen say she needs a topical moisturizer. Some say she needs a hardener. She is and has been on a vitamin supplement as well as a hoof supplement, and according to the vet her diet is fine. I'm planning on trying shoes when the farrier comes out this week, but is there something I'm missing? Is there anything else I should try adding or changing to her routine? Thanks for any input!
