Which hoof supplement is the best?
I am planning on getting Morgan started on a hoof supplement within the next 2 weeks. I have been told about several, and wanted to get opinions on which one people prefer/recommend. I've heard a lot about Horseshoers Secret, and it seems to offer what I need. I've also been told about Farrier's Friend, Farrier's Formula, and Dumor brand Hoof supplement. Opinions on these listed would be great, and also if there are any others I should be considering. Thanks guys!

I have had my horse on Horseshoer's secret for a month now and I have already seen a HUGE difference! I do the smart paks and get the Nu-Image and Horseshoer's Secret every 28 days. They are both sooo awesome. My horse seems like a new horse now with a beautiful coat and nice strong healthy hooves.

So far, from everything I've heard, Horseshoers secret may very well be one of the best out there. If I end up going with that, I'm going to get the big container from Tractor Supply. I think my husband would divorce me if I told him I had to reorder online every month, lol. Smart Paks are great, but since I do all the feeding, I'm not too worried about having it premeasured.

I use Shoers friend for Henry and I have been happy with the results , I get it from State line tack , I do not know if they have it at Tractor Supply or not.
I have thought about the smart paks , but I just fill baggies every week isnt that bad and whoever feeds just needs to grab a pre measured bag.

good luck with your horse : )

Thanks Amy! I will definitely look into that one. I'm not too worried about premeasuring, since I do all the feeding, lol. I miss you guys! How's life at Double JJ? I'm gonna have to come up and visit, and you're gonna have to come meet Morgan before she goes away to training!

Yes , I would love to meet her !!
Everything is going well.
We took Henry to CC open show a few weeks ago, M. got first in one of her classes : ) Well maybe see you at the fair this weekend for the shows?

I hope you have luck in finding a supplement that works for you!

Awesome to the kiddo!! Tell her I said congrats, and give Henry a treat from me! I'm hoping to get to at least one of the shows this weekend, but won't know til the last minute, lol. Story of my life. Let me know when you're free, and I can pick you up at Double JJ and bring you to my barn!

Look for products that contain biotin. -- likely that is in what APHA Momma is using as she is also seeing an improvement in her horse's coat.
