I am looking to put my shire mare on a supplement. As a heavy draft, a little help with her hooves can't hurt. She has healthy feet, no cracks, but she's heavy and therefore has a lot of weight on her hooves, so a little supplement could probably help.
Then we're wanting to work on hair length, in both her mane and tail, and feather. She has very thick hair, but it's not all that long and I'm wanting something that can help prevent breaking, in hopes of getting longer hair.
Then there's the major issue. She's a 7yo, and her front legs "crackel" as she walks, she has fluid movement, but her bloodline is known for knee issues, and she definitely has joints popping, so I'd like to see if a supplement could help her.
Of course, in my initial search for something, I quickly came across Joint Combo Hoof and Coat... problem is, I'm in Texas, and it is not available to be sold in Texas, I can't ship it to me, and stores can't sell it. I'm not sure why, but laws are laws, so I'm looking for an alternative. I don't mind mixing different supplements, but what ones would actually help my case? She doesn't need more oil in her diet, as she's got a nice glossy coat and is gaining weight, so I'm thinking Keratin would really be the ticket for both hoof and hair. But I'm really uneducated on supplements, so any advise would be great.
*Note* the mare is bred, so I'd need a supplement safe for pregnant mares.
