Healthy Hooves, Happy Horse: The Key to Stronger Hooves This Summer - Silver Lining Herbs

As horse owners, we know the adage "No hoof, no horse," emphasizes the critical importance of hoof health in our equine friends. During the summer, not only do horses face the discomfort of flies and other pests, but their hooves are also put to the test. Thin hoof walls can lead to serious issues, particularly when horses repeatedly stomp to ward off bugs, risking hoof breakage and other structural damage. That’s where our Feet & Bone Support for Horses comes in, offering a natural, supportive solution to maintain and enhance hoof and bone health.


The Challenge of Summer: Bugs and Brittle Hooves

Summer brings warmth and longer days but also a swarm of flies and insects that can torment horses. This annoyance causes horses to stomp more frequently, a natural reaction to discomfort. However, for horses with thin or brittle hoof walls, each stomp can mean stress and potential damage. Over time, repeated stomping can exacerbate the wear and tear on hooves, leading to cracks, breaks, and even pain or lameness, impairing a horse’s mobility and quality of life.


A Closer Look at Feet & Bone Support for Horses

Understanding the need to support horses structurally from the ground up, Feet & Bone Support for Horses is meticulously formulated to nurture not just the hooves but also bones and hard tissues throughout the body—including the feet, legs, shoulders, hocks, spine, and hips. Here’s how this product stands out in nurturing your horse’s health:

  1. Healthy Organized Hoof Growth: The blend includes ingredients like Kelp and Dandelion, rich in essential nutrients that promote healthy hoof growth. These ingredients ensure that hooves grow strong and organized, providing a solid foundation against the stress of summer stomping.

  2. Support for Bones, Tendons, and Ligaments: Ingredients like Safflower and Butchers Broom enhance circulation and support the structural integrity of bones, tendons, and ligaments. This is crucial for horses recovering from or susceptible to bone and tendon issues.

  3. Antioxidant Properties: The addition of Garlic and Yarrow helps reduce the formation of free radicals, protecting tissues from oxidative stress and aiding in the overall health and resilience of hoof and bone structures.

  4. Anti-inflammatory Benefits: Herbs like White Willow and Yucca are known for their natural anti-inflammatory properties, helping to maintain normal limb circulation and reduce discomfort from inflammation, thereby supporting mobility and comfort.

  5. Holistic Support: With a combination of Oregon Grape, Skullcap, and Boneset, the product not only supports physical structures but also enhances the horse's ability to maintain natural health defenses against environmental stressors like insects.


Integrating Feet & Bone Support into Your Horse Care Routine

Incorporating Feet & Bone Support for Horses into your daily horse care regimen can significantly benefit your horses, especially in the challenging summer months. Start by consulting with your veterinarian to ensure it complements your horse’s specific health needs and dietary requirements. Regular use, particularly before and throughout the summer, can help fortify hoof walls, support structural health, and reduce the adverse effects of stomping and environmental stresses.
