My hoofcare journey started when I was 14. I had a horse that was suffering from severe Lameness. The current hoof care provider we had suggested that our horse had Navicular syndrome. Not comfortable with this suggestion I looked for another opinion. Another opinion I did get Indeed, one that changed my whole outlook on horses from that day on. Unknowingly to me my horse had developed Laminitis.
I then took onboard and implemented the laminitis response plan, Low sugar, High Fibre Diet, 3 to 4 weekly trims (from our new hoofcare provider). When my Trimmer would come over for our appointment I would stay home from school and learn about the trimming, diet, movement and environmental impacts that affect horses. I then started to trim the horse myself in between cycles as they got stretched out to 6 weekly cycles. It then got to a stage where my hoofcare provider was confident in my work and suggested that I carry on my own trimming for our 3 horses. from there on I trimmed My own horses and a few friends horses.
In 2018, I decided to get certified in hoofcare through ACEHP and started my own hoof care business. Now, with over 10 years of overall trimming experience, I have been running my business for over four years.
I had been using another supplement for a little while but wasn't quite happy with the results I was getting. When I questioned the product I was told to up the dose. I persisted with that for a while but still wasn't happy.
My main focus was coat quality, hoof quality, mane and tail quality, and behaviour. I did some research and came across Missys bucket. It provided high levels of copper and zinc (Helps with Immune system, hoof and coat health) , Biotin (strong Hooves), Amino Acids (muscle support and liver aid), and Magnesium (Nervous System and Muscle Support). All essential for optimum Health all round.
Within 3 weeks of changing to Missy's Bucket I saw a huge change in coat condition, mane and tail. The horses coats were rich and glistening, The mane and tails were jet black. About 3-months later I observed the new growth in the hooves, approximately 3 cm from the coronary band down was all shiny and straight, not a stress ring in sight.
All round the horses were in much better condition and health.
From my own Experience using Missy's Bucket I started recommending it to clients. I now have a considerable amount of clients using Missy's Bucket. All are thrilled and pleased with the change in condition and high quality of health.
I have clients with horses in ranging disciplines from Dressage to Show Jumping, Trail riding to Carriage driving. It is a huge help for me in my profession as having horses on such a good supplement reduces the chance of the horses developing a range of Hoof Pathologies such as White Line disease, Thrush, Seedy Toe, Abscessing and Hoof wall cracks.
The supplement is also a great aid in supporting horses that suffer from Laminitis. By helping prevent horses from getting the listed Pathologies the horses grow a strong hoof that can power through a range of terrain. The overall hoof management is easier and beneficial for all involved (Owner, Horse, Hoofcare Provider).
