The only reason I ask is because just within this last week I haven't noticed any creaking/cracking noises when she walks. I don't want to cut her back on her supplement and have her cracking again, but I don't want the supplement to do more harm than good if I give her too much.
My draft gets two scoops each day, so I would imagine your horse should be on 1 scoop a day. My vet told me it was by weight of the horse.
I actually use it for Solon's feet, which has been a miracle worker.
You can call your vet and ask if it's okay to keep her on the two scoops. He'll be more familiar with her history and be able to tell you .
