Recently we posted a blog titled: "Can Equi-Pak be Used on an Unshod Hoof?"  In this blog post, we included two educational videos that outlined ways to use the material without shoes. In response to the blog, we received the following letter from a Vettec user.  We hope you enjoy reading his experience! 

I watched the video in your blog and figured I would write, as Super Fast and Equi-Pak were recently a big help to a sinker case that I worked on.

Overfeeding Affects More Than Just Humans

Have you ever seen the effects of overfeeding pregnant mares?  Did you know that overfeeding affects not only the broodmare, but her foal as well?  

Food and feeding often times are influenced by human emotions.  We want our pets to be happy, to feel special, to enjoy a treat.  We may think a certain type of feed is great so we give it to our horses without realizing the contents.  We may even give our horses supplements that are not needed.  But learning what effects overfeeding can lead to, particularly in a pregnant mare and her developing foal, may help us avoid giving them too much.
