Why not just give your horse a hoof supplement instead?

Even IF Jello had any hoof benefits, and that is a big IF, the amount you would need to feed a horse to see any benefit would be by the bucketfull...and your horse would probably colic or get laminitis from all the sugar. JMO.

Weird reccomendation.....

Doesn't seem safe.

Or sensible.

Again, JMO.

What I WOULD reccomend is Platform Hoof supplement. The Belgian draft in the photo has been on it for a year. Her hooves have NEVER had a crack or chip, NOT ONE...not even during fly stomping season...AND she is overweight. I swear by this stuff.

I heard when I was younger that Jello is actually made from animals hooves, that's probably not true but who knows...I know that gelatin is an animal product though and I wouldn't feed my horse an animal product since they are not carnivores. I agree that the sugar is not good for a horse also.

Gelatin is an animal product. You heard right, Christine.
