henry it looks to me like an oversupply of vitamins and supplements over an extended period of time does affect the hoofs or basically create bad feet. that is just a theroy i have, what is your opinion ?

my experience with equipoise does seem to help young horses, although in older horses muscle builder does appear to be just as good. equipoise will help a horse shed quicker, make him feel better, and increase appetite, but i dont see horses getting stouter on this, although there a plenty who would disagree.

TW; Proper nutrition means proper amounts at the proper time. Too much can be and usaully is as bad or worse than not enough. Vitamins must be balanced with minerals, proteins, energy and water. Vitamins can be toxic if overfed some are more toxic than others. The same is true with minerals, particulary selenium. It scares me to see how much Se some people put in their horses. The polo horses died from Selenium toxicity. Many toxic symptoms show up first in the feet so I would not dispute your theory. Nutrient balance is the key.
