[endurance] Promoting hoof growth

My mare is 10 years old and has GOOD HOOF QUALITY but POOR HOOF GROWTH.

I currently replacing her shoes every 5 - 6 weeks due to wear, and running
out of hoof to nail to.

She is on the thin side (ok, she IS thin and I am working on that, too),
but her coat shines, her eye is bright, and her energy level is perfect...

She lives on approximately 60 acres of dry land pasture (grasses/sage
brush/hills), gets all the grass hay she can eat, 1.5 lbs. rice bran, .5
lb. oats, .5 lbs. LMF Endurance G, per day (if she is NOT worked that day).

The farrier and vet have recommended Bio-Meth (?). Any comments????

What about ABC (Power Plus) Hoof? Has anyone used this product? Does it
work? Does any of this stuff help promote HOOF GROWTH?
