Biotin is a popular nutritional supplement for horses to promote and maintain the growth of healthy hooves and coats. If the hoof horn is deprived of the correct nutrients irregularities, such as cracks or brittle crumbling hooves, can occur.
The most critical vitamin in the process of hoof growth and regeneration is Biotin, this supplement is a member of the B vitamin family. It is a water soluble vitamin, which means it gets fed daily. While it’s plentiful in good grass/legume mixtures, it is otherwise poorly available from food sources, and regular supplementation is recommended. By adding in this supplement t a daily feed regime it will help prevent conditions such as dry and brittle hooves and will help improve conditions already present.
