All horse owners understand that the expression, “no hoof, no horse” is painfully accurate. If you have a horse with poor hooves you may be battling with:
- Brittle and easily cracked hoof wall
- White line disease
- Thin, soft soles
- Lameness and tenderness
Hoof supplements, in conjunction with good equine nutrition, can assist to improve the quality of your horse’s hooves. Dodson & Horrell’s Firm Foot is a herbal blend designed for shod, barefoot and transitioning horses. It provides a natural way to take care of your horse’s hooves from the inside out.
Firm Foot has been in the UK market for many years with excellent results seen with hoof hardness, growth rate and quality. Now, horse owners in Australia are catching on and can’t believe their eyes. One impressed horse owner said she “put the foot down again and picked up the other one, thinking I had the wrong foot!”
The Firm Foot herbal blend contains a carefully formulated combination of seaweed and rosehips to promote circulation and hoof growth.
The supplement was created following the careful observation that cloven animals grazing on seaweed at the coastline never seem to have problems with their feet.
This may have something to do with the fact that seaweed contains many minerals, amino acids and vitamins. Not all seaweed is created equal though – some have metal residues or too much iodine.
The seaweed in Dodson & Horrell’s Firm Foot is certified organic from Connemara in Southern Ireland on the Atlantic Coast and has passed all tests. Herbalist David Hussey blends fine cut rosehips with the seaweed – these ingredients mixed together are doing amazing things for horses with hoof problems.
