Do you vote Gelatin for stronger hooves?

I take Gelitain (powder form, not the dessert) to strengthen my nails. It's been working really well. (there the longest, strongest, and toughest they have ever been. No lie) I was thinking, would gelatin do the same thing for a horses hooves? Hooves are made simalarily to human nails, so I would think it would help to strengthen hooves and make them more chip resistant.
Anyone know from experience?
Any health issues that may come up due to horses eating the gelatin?
Any horse feed specialists have any input?

My roommate givers her horse powdered gelatin. Our farrier has seen a huge difference in her horses feet, I would for sure recomend it.

I would suggest talking to your vet and or farrier about it.
