“We have a 17-year-old polo pony still playing 12-goal polo. He had crummy feet and a history of many abscesses during a year-long period. He would blow out the top, create huge cracks and grew foot so slowly the cracks wouldn’t have a chance to heal. He was impossible to shoe and lame barefoot. We tried supplement after supplement for years. Finally, at a vet visit, he suggested Platinum. The before picture is after a year and a half on hoof supplements. The after picture is after 10 months of Platinum. Thank you for a product that works!”
