"I started him on Rose-Hip Vital and within weeks he was galloping around the paddock like there was nothing wrong"
In January this year my 10 year old QH had an accident with a gate. He was hit with force around his coronet band. Prior to this he had damaged the coronet band and had ongoing problems with cracking hooves which started off like an abscess. He was X-rayed and I was told he had torn the ligament off the bone. I didn’t agree with this as you can’t see torn ligaments on an X-ray. I then asked for a second opinion from a lameness specialist who tested him and did nerve blocks and re X-rayed him. She found that he had a side bone fracture plus navicular and coffin bone changes as well as coronet band damage.
I was told to put him back in the paddock and leave him for 6 – 12 months and then re X-ray him after 6 months. I started him on Rose-Hip Vital and within weeks he was galloping around the paddock like there was nothing wrong. So much for rest!!! He was X-rayed again a couple of weeks ago and there was no sign of his fracture and his coronet band had healed. He does not appear lame and I have started him back in light work. I believe putting him on Rose-Hip Vital has made all the difference to his recovery. I will be keeping him on this for life.
