CASE STUDY: Harrison, 20 year old, Throughbred gelding.
Far from being retired and moping in a paddock, Harry is still in active work, full of life, and needs feet that ensure he can carry on doing what he loves best!

|Hoof before supplementation.|
|After 2 months. The supplemented new growth is clearly better quality than that below.|
|Close up of 2 month hoof. The old growth is quite coarse with a myriad of micro cracks. The supplemented growth above is tightly connected and smooth.|
|By 4 months, nearly half the hoof capsule is supplemented growth: shiny, smooth and tightly connected. The large crack which in a weaker hoof would have continued to spread upwards has been stopped in its tracks by the supplemented hoof.|
|At 9 months we almost have a completely new hoof capsule: smooth, tightly connected and shiny with health. A very different looking hoof to the 'before' picture above!|
|It takes time to build a good hoof. On average it takes 9-12 months to completely replace the hoof capsule. As this case study clearly demonstrates, for the best possible results, long term consistent supplementation provides the best results.|
