So I overheard another lady rider on a trek expertly advising a group of people to feed their horse gelatin to improve hoof structure because "gelatin (the stuff used to make jelly/jello) was originally made from boiled down horse hooves so horses find it really easy to digest and it goes straight to rebuilding their hooves, just put a couple of tablespoons in thier feeds each day" and I thought very skeptically that this sounded like a bunch of rubbish
I mean on that theory shouldnt we be feeding our horses glue as well??
Im very skeptical of this kind of advice because it came from a women who refused to ride her 20 year old mare on the trek but led it the whole way 'because she was building its trust and establishing leadership' and also because it sounds like rubbish but I thought I better ask around and see if anyone has heard this myth and tried it?
Have you fed your horse gelatine? Notice any effect from it wither good or bad??
