    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Farrier is Delighted Since putting our 19 year old quarter horse on Shoer's Friend his feet have improved immensely. My Farrier is DELIGHTED and says Red's hooves have never been this healthy. I couldn't be happier - finally, something that works after years of trying different products with little or no improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Speeds up growth My TB has very shelly feet that took a beating this summer with him constantly stamping at flies. At one point he pulled a shoe clean off, and his hoof did not grow in well at all; what was left was too short to even put clinches in. The vet recommended I start on a supplement, and I started using Shoer's Friend about two months ago. It made the hoof grow a bit faster, which was what I was after. I cannot attest to hoof strength, but now the hoof has grown out long enough to be shod, and the hooves do look healthier than they did without the supplement. Shoer's Friend does not have as much biotin, etc. as other supplements, but it is very affordable and does the trick. It is also palatable in pellet form; my guy eats it right up! I will probably keep my horse on it as a preventative measure: it is cheap enough to use long-term.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The label is misleading!! After a late night of reading doses and comparing products, I ordered Shoer's Friend. It does NOT have 12.5 Biotin in a regular maintenance dose and didn't realize it until I was feeding one day and saw the 0.5 scoop on the Pak! I was only getting HALF of 6.25mg which is RIDICULOUS...when it says 2 oz is a dose they are talking LOADING dose! I fed this for 28 days and wasted my money during a critical time when my horse had Laminitis! I am BACK to my Grand Hoof pellets and that IS a product I can recommend... : (

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Thoroughbred My 9 year old thoroughbred had cracked and brittle hooves and my farrier recommended a more expensive supplement. I instead found Shoer's Friend and started him on it immediately. At our next appointment, my farrier said his hooves looked fantastic! I told my farrier I had taken his advice and started him on the supplement, I just didn't tell him which one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Feet for 2 years My horse had lousy feet before I bought him. To prevent any risk of their demise I was an advocate of using a very expensive product. The price continuously went up to a rdiculous amount. After much research I decided on Shoer's Friend at a lower price point but with nearly the same ingredients. My horses' feet continue to maintain great quality. It is the only supplement I use on his hoofs now. He is now wearing 2 sizes larger than when I bought him.
