“Normally I am just maintaining toe cracks from expanding, but using DE HoofTaps the crack is gone in 1 or 2 shoeing cycles.”

Horse came in horrible shape, overgrown, underweight, couldn't walk. He is still an ongoing project. He is doing much better, put on weight and bringing his feet back under himself in the front, and standing up in the back. When I started working on him, he couldn't hold one foot up for longer for a minute or so. The DE HoofTaps have helped him tremendously. We were so concerned with him we didn’t take any before pictures.
