    Biotin II 22X is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Biotin for feet I like the content for hoof health and the probiotics that are in it too

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good results I bought this on the advice of my farrier. My horses have fairly good hooves, but it doesn't hurt to assist them, especially as fly season is here and they are continually stomping inside and out. We have had less breakage and better hoof growth since using the extra biotin.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some improvement, had hoped for more I started my 10 yr. old TB on this a year ago to help improve hoof growth and quality. I wanted to keep her on it for a full year before writing a review to give her feet the time they needed to completely grow out. I did see improvement in the condition of her white line and her feet are not as soft as they once were. Saddly, it did nothing for improving growth, overall quality, or cracking. I gave it a 5 for palatability however my mare will eat anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes a while, but you can see the difference! My mare has been on this for 5 months now. It's taken up until the last month to really SEE the difference. My pony has never had to have her feet cut with the nippers, only filed with the rasp. The last farrier visit, she had enough foot to actually nip! Her tail is where I can really see the difference- once eaten off by a baby, it was just under her hocks when I got her and seemed to never grow. In the last few months, it's grown A LOT and it's almost down to her fetlocks, in addition to being fuller.I do find the pellets left over in her bucket from time to time, but she's the type that will randomly decide "I don't want this supplement today" and leave which ever one she doesn't want in the bucket..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! This supplement is amazing. My paint/thoroughbred had really dry, cracking and split hooves and couldn't hold shoes very long after using this for 2 months the difference has been amazing he has completely new hooves and he is holding his shoes with ease, no more split hooves. Worth every penny. It took him a day or two to get use to the taste but now he cleans his bowl he is the pickiest horse alive so I don't think other horses would have much of a problem if he doesn't.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Take the Horse Off It! Since we get constant temperature changes in MI good hooves are in short order and despite my best effort I still get severe sand cracks and chipping in my mare's hooves. Recently I moved her to a Smart brand hoof supplement but it's been two weeks and I already can see massive cracking. I will never take her off Biotin II again no matter the cost. Wonderful product!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Biotin II 22x While I have only given Biotin for two weeks to my horse, she gobbles it up. it readily. I understand it takes a year to really see the effect of biotin. My vet recommended straigth biotin so that's what we got.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stong Hooves I've been using this since I removed the shoes from my horse about three month's ago. It has made a difference in the strength of the hoof and the growth. It is not growing too fast, and he seems to have a higher tolerance to walking on hard ground in the barn. I think it has made a great difference and I will continue to use it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need strong hooves with less fatty acids? This product helps the shoes stay on my T Walker. I've noticed when the shoes were pulled off for the winter, there's plenty of hoof wall, well defined white line, and less chipping.I've tried other products which caused an increase in smegma production. (Hence, more cleaning..) This product minimizes smegma build up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product 2 years ago, I adopted 2 goats as companions for my "only child" horse as I thought he might be lonesome. Rocky is a very sweet Rocky Mountain Horse and had a beautiful tail that dragged the ground. While the goats were good companions for Rocky, they weren't good for his tail. They completely chewed off his tail. This happened over the space of one evening. I was devastated and needed some help. I discovered your products, talked to an advisor and she recommended the Biotin as it helps with coat, hair and hooves. Two years later, I am pleased to say that his tail has completely grown back to its former fullness and drags the ground again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My one horse was always losing his shoes and his feet were always dry looking. Once I started him on biotin it only took a couple months before I started seeing a diff in his hooves. Now at least 5 years later his feet look great and has only lost a shoe on those extra muddy occasions. I would recommend to anyone as this is a great product and truly works!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement When I bought my mare 1 year ago, she had hooves that were very prone to cracks and lost shoes. She had been in an accident that left her tail dead, and had also removed all of the hair off the last inch of her tailbone. After starting my mare on this supplement in October I have noticed that her hooves look FABULOUS, her tail is much thicker, and the "thumb" of her tailbone is starting to grow hair! The sulfur in this product is great for hair growth and hoof quality, and hardly any other product offers it. My mare's coat is much softer and shinier than before, and she will be on this product for the rest of her life. My mare eats it by itself and is a pretty picky eater. I have this product on autoship because it is the one thing I can't be without in my daily feeding routine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My 11 year old mare used to have chips and cracks in her hoof walls, but not anymore after starting her on this. She lost the hair on the last inch of her tailbone before we got her to an improperly put in fake tail, but with the Biotin II 22x her hair is beginning to grow again on the "stump." Her whole tail is much longer, thicker, and so much easier to keep up. Her hooves now look like the farrier just left no matter how many weeks it has been since she was last trimmed. No more cracks, flakes, etc. to be seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great Can see the Difference I have a 2 yr Old Hunter Under Saddle Futurity horse who tore most of his hoof off with a shoe, we started him on this supplment and within 2 months we had a shoe back on and we havent problems with cracking or pulling shoes since!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product really had an impact I have struggled with my horse's feet for years, a new farrier recommended I add this even though my regular supplement says it has Biotin in it. In two months my horses showed significant improvement in hoof growth!
    Date published: 2009-10-26
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Farrier noticed a difference I had Rocky on the product for over a year when I was layed off. I had to cut expenses so I cancelled my subscription/prescription for several months. In the meantime, my farrier came out to the barn to trim and reset shoes on Rocky. He asked if I had quit feeding the horse or changed food as his feet were not growing like they used to. It then occurred to me that it had to be biotin that Rocky was missing. I was then called back to work and immediately restarted the biotin. I will not be without it again!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! My horse has been on Biotin II 22X for less than a month, but I can already see a difference in his feet and his coat. While my horse has a nice bloom to his coat, it just GLEAMS since starting him on Biotin II 22X. I have used this product on horses in the past and always saw a shinier coat, stronger feet, and increased mane and tail growth. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to anyone!
    Date published: 2009-08-19
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Biotin I haven't used this product long enough to make an informed opinion on my specific horse. A lady where I board my horse has used this product for 6 months and raves about it. Her horse has the hooves to prove that it does work. I will let you know in a couple months how it works on my horse.
