[RC] Blue Green Algae and Spiralina - Pat Gluckin

Do any of you feed either of these as supplements for your horses? Is one better than the other? Are there any words of caution one must be aware of regarding adding these tot he diet? What if they are of human consumption quality? Is a teaspoon a day enough? Not enough or too much for about a 1100 lib. horse?

I am wanting to add either of these as a means to improve my horse's hoof quality. He is a 7 YO 1/2 TB and Appaloosa gelding with the misfortune of having TB pancake feet. Added to this is the fact that they always have vertical cracks in a couple of the walls. The cracks, fortunately, are pretty much just surface blemishes, and my farrier is keeping close tabs on them. So far so good, with the exception of their unattractive appearance. :-((

I have him on a hoof supplements and other supplements as well. Just wondering is any of you know why I should or should not add the spiralina or Blue Green Algae.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.
