Carol Layton's Hoof Rescue +SE is a highly bio-available mineral mix with the minerals that most horses are deficient in.

'Hoof Rescue +SE' mix was developed after a few farriers/trimmers requested it on behalf of horse owners who don't want to go the whole effort of testing their pasture and/or hay.

  • Hoof Rescue +SE will not only help with hoof growth and quality, you will see a difference in coat, mane and tail, immune system, ability to handle a high work load and general wellbeing.
  • It contains significant amounts of copper, zinc and magnesium plus selenium, iodine, calcium and phosphorus.
  • 3kg will last 5.7 months on the standard dose for the average horse.
  • 5kg will last 9.5 months. (23 cents a day). 
  • There is NO added iron and manganese which are harmful in excess, and compete with the uptake of zinc and copper.
  • Rather than pass on high fancy packaging costs, the price is kept low by using a strong and durable, high quality plastic bag.
  • Vitamin E is not included because when added to feeds or multi ingredient supplements it is oxidised very quickly so should be added separately.
  • Suitable for growing, breeding and working horses, especially those living in selenium depleted areas (see map in images).
  • Selenium is an important antioxidant for protecting cell structures and cell membranes from the effects of oxygen free radicals produced during energy generation, and therefore most important for tissues with high aerobic metabolism activity like the brain/nervous system, heart, skeletal muscles and rapidly growing tissues.
    Acidic soils inhibit selenium uptake by plants. Alkaline soils are more likely to have adequate selenium levels though horses in work may need supplementation.
    A soil test will show pH, the lower the pH number the higher the acidity, 7 is neutral and the higher the number the more alkaline the soil.

EXCELLENT RESULTS FOR MY TROUBLESOME TB MARE

By: on 15 January 2017
I have tried many hoof mineral mixes for my TB mare over the last five plus years however have never been truly happy with how she responded until I started her on the Hoof Rescue +SE Mineral Mix. My gelding is also on it now and my farrier recently commented on how impressed she was with how quickly he recovered from a recent bout of laminitis. So I am truly very very impressed and very satisified!

Hoof Rescue SE-Mineral Mix

By: on 5 January 2017
This is an amazing mineral mix. My trimmer recommended it during winter - since putting my two horses on it their hooves have improved, their coats are glossy and their manes and tails are luxurious. I can see such an improvement in such a short time. Can't recommend this product highly enough. You certainly won't be disappointed putting your horses onto this.

Seems to be working

By: on 6 September 2016
I am on my second pack of this product, I am feeding it to 3 horses, one of which has skin issues. Didn't notice any changes for the first pack but am half way into the second pack and am starting to notice an improvement in all coats (darkening, gloss). The mare with the skin issues has not had a flare up for about a month now. Hooves also seem to be improving in condition. Will continue with this product as I believe it will continue to benefit my horses.

THESE PRODUCTS ARE GOLD

By: on 6 September 2016
I only wish these products had been around thirty years ago. My TB isn't sun bleached and the QH is GLOWING!!!! Neat clean little feet on both horses now too with no thrush, no seedy toe and fast healing of bumps, cuts and scrapes. Thank you Carol.

Looking Good

By: on 19 November 2015
Purchased this a month or so ago. I have issues with post laminitic pony and a mare with seedy toe. New growth is looking strong and healthy and also seeing positive changes in coat and general appearance. Very pleased so far

Horses don't like it

15 November 2015
The recommended dose for this product, was a tablespoon per day per horse. I dropped it back to one teaspoon, and they still don't eat it. I then added molasses to their feed, and they would eat a bit but still leave some of the feed. My horses have access to lots of great pasture, so trying to feed this in a hard feed was just too difficult. I've now swapped to a loose lick mineral which they happily consume. Message from Store Owner: We're happy to give advice about these sorts of issues so please contact us. Here's an article that might help: http://naturalhorseworld.com/newsite/horses-dont-like-minerals/

GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY

By: on 17 September 2015
Excellent product. I have a young OTTB and after a month, I can see black, shiny and healthy hoof coming through. As an added bonus, his coat is a rich chocolate instead of light bay.

Change of supplement

By: on 23 July 2015
I am unable to detect any difference after having one horse on this product for over a month, and the other horse just changing over now (using up the old product first). I have supplemented their feed with a high quality mineral product for several years now so this is just a change of brand. I will be interested to see how the season change out of winter goes for them though. Store owners reply: If a mineral mix product doesn't help (poor coat appearance, compromised immune system, poor hoof quality), then either: 1. The iron level (or manganese) is quite high in the intake. Since iron is known to interfere with the uptake of zinc and copper, the standard dose may not be high enough. Instead of 1 metric tablespoon, the dosage can be 1.5 to 2 tablespoons. It's safe to go higher than this. For small ponies, especially under 200 kg, the 1 metric tablespoon will be fine. OR 2. The copper to zinc ratio for the rest of the intake is not close to the ideal ratio of 1:3. Best way to correct a copper to zinc imbalance is for the horse owner to have the pasture or hay tested (whichever is appropriate) to see what the copper to zinc ratio is and that will show what amounts of copper and zinc are needed to optimise it (and the other nutrients like protein, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium). Sometimes pasture and hay test results can have a copper to zinc ratio of 1:11, though fortunately, it isn't common. A mineral mix product with a 1:3 ratio of copper to zinc cannot correct a very imbalanced intake.

Supplement sagas

2 July 2015
I really can't say if this product has made a difference to my horses. They are in great condition and always have been. I have problems with seedy toe and this has improved by using Bug Buster. I add mineral supplements as a preventative measure and haven't noticed anything different before or after Horse Rescue. I choose to use this because it is more specific to our acidic soils than off the shelf products. Reply from Equine Nutritionist: It's always lovely to receive positive feedback from a horse owner but sometimes an off the shelf mineral mix product can't possibly deliver for all situations. If a mineral mix product doesn't help (poor coat appearance, compromised immune system, poor hoof quality), then either: 1. The iron level (or manganese) is quite high in the intake. Since iron is known to interfere with the uptake of zinc and copper, the standard dose may not be high enough. Instead of 1 metric tablespoon, the dosage can be 1.5 to 2 tablespoons. It's safe to go higher than this. For small ponies, especially under 200 kg, the 1 metric tablespoon will be fine. OR 2. The copper to zinc ratio for the rest of the intake is not close to the ideal ratio of 1:3. Best way to correct a copper to zinc imbalance is for the horse owner to have the pasture or hay tested (whichever is appropriate) to see what the copper to zinc ratio is and that will show what amounts of copper and zinc are needed to optimise it (and the other nutrients like protein, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium). Sometimes pasture and hay test results can have a copper to zinc ratio of 1:11, though fortunately, it isn't common. A mineral mix product with a 1:3 ratio of copper to zinc cannot correct a very imbalanced intake. Best treatment for seedy toe is a multifaceted approach, both nutrition and quality hoof care have to work together. You can beat seedy toe with excellent nutrition for the immune system combined with quality hoof care, including sufficiently frequent trimming. Once seedy toe gets established it is essential to treat the site of microbial and fungal activity.
