[RC] Hoof Suppliment - Stewart, Carrie

I have a 5 year old stallion that had great, tough feet before having EPM 2 years ago.  Unfortunately, one of the side effects of Marquis is shelly feet.  I finally had this guy evaluated by 2 vets when I felt he was ready to start some serious training and they deemed him 110% sound after a long rehab period.  They were really impressed with his recovery (he was a 4 on the neuro scale). 

  We have had continuing problems with vertical toe cracks and now, last two shoeings, lost shoes.  I would like some advice on what supplements/preparations everyone has tried and with what degree of success.  Maybe I can revert/help along the recovery of his feet.  I want to start this boy on some rides, since endurance is what I love, and see how he does.  If not, I may just have to buckle down and take some refresher lessons to try him in the show ring (yuck). 

 

Thanks in advance,
