I normally have my horses on some type of joint supplement, even if it is merely for peace of mind.
I have read quite a bit that the effectiveness of joint supplements as a preventative is often debated.
Obviously, we are all money conscious these days, and getting rid of the unnecessary spending helps(not saying that supplements are unnecessary).
Later I get him Boots even don’t know if it helps or not.
I haven't had my horse on a supplement since I bought him in September. If he were at home, doing 1/2 the work he is currently doing....he would be on my old farm. My trainer is one that doesn't believe in it as a preventative, but obviously if I show up with his horse. She'll have the guys feed it to him.
He has been in full time training going on 6 1/2 months now.
He is shod every 5 weeks, and I am happy with how the current farrier is doing him. He suggested me that I get a boot for him. I can see he’s doing well now.
