In short, no. Nothing to make them grow faster but there is supplements that will STRENGTHEN them.

I didn't see your post so I don't know the horses issue, but just be careful what you introduce. The other thing is to talk to a vet. Won't cost you a thing and it will save you in time and money to get the right product. Good luck.

They'll need to be strengthened as I know with youngsters it can cause bone problems later on. What's the cause of the horses lameness? I'd speak to the vet.

Robert Becker - The Body Electric

He was doing research to regrow limbs. And in that research he was also regrowing broken bones.

It's pretty simple actually. But it's not commonly known. YET.

Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.

I am not sure I would feel warm and fuzzy about something that made bones grow faster. I would worry that you are passing on proper structural growth for quick growth.

Can you please explain the problem? It's a far cry from a lame horse to one that needs to be euthanized.

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.

We need to know the problem before any appropriate advice can be given. If the issue is arthritis, you can feed calcium (in the form of either lucerne/alfalfa, or a supplement), and feed MSM and glucosamine in conjunction with each other, to help promote healthy joints and keep him more mobile.

If not arthritis - then we need to know what it is!
