Why do you pinch the skin to test for hydration? Because you can’t pinch the hooves! Charlie Brown was treated with Equiwinner because he lived with cracked hooves. With Equiwinner, Charlie started drinking a lot more water and it went to his feet! The hooves became hydrated and the cracks closed up. These photos were taken Sep 21 and Oct 26. That’s just 5 weeks. So don’t underestimate hydration. Hydration is everything.
