So she's receiving no vit/min's in any form? If that's so, I would add a vit/min supplement to her diet either in powder/pellet form or in the form of a RB, then re evaluate in 30-60 days. Nutrition plays a huge role in hair/hoof health.
I, myself, feed free choice mixed grass hay and a RB (Buckeye Gro N Win). It is a grain free. Low NCS feed meant to be fed at a very small rate (1lb for most 1,000lb horses in no to little work). Mine get about 2.5c per horse per day.
