Hoof Guard For My Mini


“I have a 300lb miniature horse. Ferrier suggested I try hoof guard to help him grow more hoof. Is this safe for mini’s? And what would the dosage be?”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

Hoof guard would be great for your mini. Dosage for 1000 lb horse is 2 oz, so you would want to your 300 lb mini 1/3 of a scoop. Good luck! It is an amazing product.

Let me know if I can answer any more questions for you.
