Alaska started being fed Missy's Bucket in September 2020 as her coat was dull and her hooves were in a terrible condition. Issues with her hooves were evident as she struggled to walk on the gravel driveway and was always footsore. She also suffered from thin hoof soles, and the walls of her hooves were weak, cracked and chipped.
You may find that your horses coat has already started shedding, this is triggered by the longer daylight hours and marks the start of the long winter coat loss! This process will continue over the next few months and it's important to provide adequate nutritional support during this time to encourage a healthy and shiny new summer coat.
Often during Spring horses are locked up for extended periods to keep them off the rich grass and the danger of Laminitis at bay. Compared to fresh grass, the nutrient profile of hay can be quite different. This is because some vitamins and fats are fragile and are lost in the curing process or can decline over time. There are some main nutrients that should be considered.
The herb Jiao Gu Lan has a long history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Because of the herb’s ability as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, it has beneficial effects for horses suffering from Laminitis. It also has a powerful ability to increase blood flow in the hoof due to its ability to modulate nitric oxide.

It is used to determine whether a horse is underweight, healthy weight or overweight and is not affected by gut contents or pregnancy as live weight would be.
Our horses rely on vitamins and minerals to maintain essential bodily functions and good general health. Just like all living things, they would die without them. So how do we work out what they need and how do we choose a good supplement once we know what’s likely to be missing?
