Hoof Supplements

For hoof health supplements, I generally divide them into two broad categories, there are supplements that will provide specific nutrients, e.g., supplementing just biotin or just zinc and copper. Or those that will have most of the nutrients that are integral to hoof health.

The Calcium to Phosphorus Ratio

Minerals also have intricate interactions with each other – so the ratios are key.

Biotin

Not only is biotin important for hoof health through the production of keratin, but biotin is also involved in various enzymes that are essential in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Therefore, it is essential for the conversion of feed into energy for the horse to use. 

What does “grain-free” actually mean?

Horses have evolved to trickle feed on forage. Feeding grains began to meet the additional energy requirements of working horses.
