My feed of choice for all my eventers is T&R’s Claytons pellets. Horses need a lot less protein, carbs, sugar and ‘fancy foods’ than you would expect, and the Claytons pellets are a great choice when looking for a feed that is low starch, high fibre, and non-grain based. Not only is it great for their digestive system, but it keeps them looking and feeling well, too! Plus, they’re locally produced by ingredients that are locally sourced, and I think spreading the love locally is really important.
These pictures show before and afters shot of Rosie’s hooves after being on the Dodson & Horrell ‘Firm Foot’ herbal blend.
Rosie is a warmblood mare who experienced dry, cracked hooves over summer. Eight weeks later, they are firming up nicely.
“I was keen to try the Dodson and Horrell ‘Firm Foot’ herbal blend as my horse had a huge crack about 3mm wide, extending from the coronet band to the base of the hoof. The crack was wide open and she has suffered several abscesses. To be honest, I thought that was going to be the end of her as she has had all sorts of treatments and is in a bar shoe all the time.
I wasn’t expecting a miracle but willing to try anything. I am absolutely kicking myself that I didn’t take a photo on day one but kept saying I would do so next time I had my phone on me as didn’t really expect results. With one thing and another, a death in the family (among other things), the horse was left in the paddock and just checked daily and fed.
Imagine my complete surprise and delight when I bought her in this week and picked up her foot to have a look at the crack. I put the foot down again and picked up the other one, thinking I had the wrong foot – but no of course I had the right foot.
The crack has started growing out from the coronet – about 1.5cm of new growth, and I don’t know how, but the 3mm wide crack is now barely visible. The horse has gone from 3 legged lame to probably a grade 1 lameness and I am tempted to take her out for a walk under saddle soon.
I can’t thank you enough for this amazing product. No matter what else my horse does or doesn’t get, she’s on Firm Foot for life.
This photo shows how the hoof has grown down since being on the Firm Foot (the big the crack was all the way up to the coronet band previously, and would occasionally bleed).”
As a breeder and long time exhibitor of chickens, it's important that my birds are fit, healthy and lay well. The T&R poultry feeds are well priced and provide the right proportions of protein, minerals and energy. I have used T&R chook feed for years as I know it is well formulated, always fresh and the recipes never change. It's also a huge advantage to be able to speak to a local, knowledgeable person about my chicken feeding program.
