 i pulled the front shoes on my old horse and he is tenderfooted a little and his hoof walls are crap. I didn’t know he had crappy front feet. But I wanted to pull his shoes bc I’m not riding him due to sore hocks/stifle. He’s been barefoot on hinds forever. In one day he chipped off some of the hoof wall. So I need something to help with growth and hoof wall thickness! What’s the best??

and yes I’m looking for a new farrier lol

TLC Mega Hoof Complex...In my experience, people get super caught up with biotin, which you absolutely need biotin but you also need zinc, copper, I-lysine and I-methionine to get the most bang for your buck and that's where TLC gets it right with their Mega Hoof Complex.

Here's how they work:
Biotin- has been long valued for its ability to enhance NEW horn growth. This process may take months to complete, but studies show adequate Biotin intake can help expedite the process considerably.

Zinc & Copper- are responsible for improving the integrity of the horn, itself. Horses deficient in either one, or both of these nutrients will tend to lose shoes and have cracks in their hooves. This deficiency may also be responsible for poor frog and sole health.

I-Lysine- is an essential amino acid, which is considered as β€˜rate limiting’ because in the absence of lysine, the other amino acids don’t absorb as well. This is important to improve efficiency in protein utilization, which will ultimately growth, blood building, tissue repair, and muscle development. In a hoof supplement it directly applies to how well the l-Methionine is absorbed to enhance the Keratin content in the hoof (Keratin is the protein responsible for improving the strength of the cellular bonds that make up the hoof material).

I-Methionine- is an essential amino acid, which is required by the body to assist in the formation of Cysteine & Keratin. Essentially, they help to strengthen the cellular bonds that would need to be improved when deteriorating hoof conditions are evident. The domestic horse today tends to fall short of the required levels of l-Methionine and Lysine, so supplementing several thousand milligrams daily is a great way to ensure they’re meeting their requirements.

I have buy 2, get 1 free. Message me for details!

Dac foundation formula.

Just want to add, usually after pulling shoes they will go through a shedding stage and the hooves will chip anything old and brittle. It should eventually stop once it reaches new healthy hoof. They are just "self trimming" since they no longer have that metal shoe to protect them.

OE Hoof Evolution. It has a vasodilator (similar to Platinum Hema Flo) in it along with a food hoof supplement. If you don’t have good blood flow to the feet your horse can’t utilize the supplement.

I have always used Farriers Formula when I felt like I needed a hoof supplement for my guys. And now I see that they have a Joint plus Ferriers Formula,, pretty cool.

 Ok thanks to those who replied. I ordered CA trace. But I’m still thinking of getting a biotin based supplement too or is that overkill? Someone suggested flax but He is already fat so I’m afraid it would be a bad idea. Maybe add some kind of herb to it?

There is another recent hoof thread on here that explains biotin. Its really not that beneficial. Its only one of the key minerals needed to build hoof. Copper, zinc, lysine, & methonine are the key minerals needed to build hoof. I watched a Dac seminar one time and it explained it all.

The best topical hoof dressing I've ever used is Equine Relevare Hoof Dressing. It is very hard to find now. The last couple times I've gotten some I ordered from a place in Texas and they shipped it.

There is someone that advertises it here at BHW but that one is an imation. And a poor imitation at that.

biotin needs its buddy DL Methionine in order to be beneficial. its a marriage that cant be broken. I think you will be very pleased with Ca trace.

I wouldn't be so concerned with adding a supplement. Often times with shoes they don't get the moisture or expansion for blood circulation like they do when barefoot. So the feet can be brittle and once they are returned to barefoot often times they will chip away that brittle hoofwall. I am guessing it is chipping down to the level of the sole which is where the hoof should be trimmed to anyways. I would be more concerned about his sole being ready to handle being barefoot. I would be applying a hardener to help his sole toughen up in preperation of being barefoot again.
