Every part of the horse’s anatomy is important, but some parts of their bodies are more vulnerable than others. For example, their hoofs require extra care.
For hoof care, horse owners often wonder if they need to invest in hoof care products to ensure the hoofs remain healthy.
What the horse owner has to be careful of is not to be duped into buying unnecessary horse care products like some that are on the market for horse hoofs. However, that is not to say that there are not some really good ones available, and ones that may be necessary at times.
In some cases, supplements may be needed to help with problems in the hoof. But not all horses automatically need these types of supplements.
Some hoof care products for horses that are on the market are designed to keep the horse’s hoofs supple and help the hoofs retain their moisture. Again these may be necessary or they may not. Plus, there are good products as well as bad ones.
The best step a horse owner can take is to rely on their farrier and vet to determine what products, if any, are needed for a particular horse’s hoof health and care. Otherwise, money is being wasted and the horse is being subjected to products that really aren’t required. Plus there is always a possibility that more harm than good could be done.
Horses must have healthy hoofs or it can lead to all kinds of serious problems that can be difficult to deal with.
