Nope. Best hoof conditioner is good diet, turnout and trimming.

^^Agreed. I don't think any sort of cooking grease should be anywhere near horses, just no need and kinda gross xD Save it for the dogs. My mare is on constant turn out, semi-regular exercise and a balanced diet- she has some of the best barefoot hooves ever :)

I have heard that. I have a healthy horse with barefoot hooves but they will chip like crazy. I thought about doing it my self using a paint brush.

Just add biotin to her feed. Great supplement.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Seems to me it would attract ants to her feet.
