Biotin Supplements Will Definitely Help.
Certainly Biotin supplements are recommended Biotin aids cell growth and division, but you need more than just Biotin supplements. It takes more than biotin to build a better hoof such as Sulfur-bearing amino acids, including methionine. Whilst there is little written about the use methionine in a horseâ€™s diet, but it seems sensible to supplement this amino acid if poor hoof quality is the problem. But donâ€™t worry, you will find methionine listed on the label of many hoof supplements.
Another nutrient to consider is that of zinc, a mineral affecting the health and of hair and skin as well as hooves. So if you are not using a mixed feed with supplemental levels of zinc, you need to look to supplement them.
Whatever you do, donâ€™t exceed the recommended doses of any horse supplement, an excess will do more harm than good.
Do also bear in mind that horses grow a new hoof wall at the rate of a quarter to a third of an inch a month, so it can take a long time for a hoof to repair itself to the point your farrier can trim it.
As for kicking rings, as their name suggests they were designed to stop a horse from kicking or pawing, but they do have a side effect of massaging the coronary band as the horse walks around, which does stimulate the hoof.
