I have only just started the supplement, but my mare loves the treats, I am waiting to see if this improves her main, tail, and hoofs!
My mare was having significant issues with her feet. We started seeing a new farrier and he recommended a good supplement for her. He told me what to look for in one and I found these. I board so it’s easy for the facility to give her everyday. She’s been on them for almost a year now and the progress she’s made is outstanding! Very thankful for this product and for our amazing farrier.
I really like how easy this is. You just give your horse a wafer. No messing with powders. And very easy to just give it to them in the pasture with other horses around. Seems to work well. I've had it on one horse for about 9 months and his coat is shinier than it has been in the past, and it's improved the qualify of his hooves. I will be keeping him on it and actually started another horse on it too. They seem to like the taste of the wafers too. They smell a little weird to me, but they like them!
I was hoping this would be an easy remedy to improve the condition of my horse's hooves. So far the only way to get him to eat them is by forcing them into his mouth, which isn't any fun.
SUGGESTION if horses won't eat them at first: crumble the cookie up into a couple handfuls of feed they do like and eat for a few days, leaving gradually bigger chunks...in less than a week my two geldings were munching it whole happily! Super convenient, great ingredients, nearly foolproof for others who help feed when you are away! Wish there was a line of cookies for horses with sugar-sensitive conditions.
Not only did my horse not like them ( I had the crumble them up and mix in his food), but he grew all kinds of abnormal growth on his hooves. He got these curly keratosis like structures on his heels. Would not recommend.
My three horses won't eat them. i tried crumbling them up in grain... i tried sandwiching them between their apple snap treats... i tried every trick to get my horse ..who needs them...to eat them. Nope. I tasted them.... nasty tasting. So sorry.. these won't work for my horse.
I receive lots of kudos for how my horse looks everyday.. he was a rescue from a kill sale 6 months ago and he now has a shiny coat and his hooves are improving as well. this is a wonderful product as I give him one wafer/day.
One of my horses needs a hoof supplement but how to make sure he gets it all and not the rest of the herd. This is perfect! He loves it and there is no question that he is getting the required dose. My farrier was amazed at how well his hooves are doing.
I have three not very fussy horses. I liked the way this product was in a wafer type so I could make sure each horse got the correct amount. As soon as I opened the package I was fairly certain they would not eat it. They did try but spit it right back out. The smell was awful and none of the three horses wanted anything to do with it.
