    I am going to wait for this coming warm weather that they are predicting to see if it softens the footing up a bit.

    Would borium grips be a better solution for this situation? I read somewhere that a horse can really cut himself up with borium. Is this true?

    Would booting eliminate that risk?

    I used sucralfate alone with some improvement but it wasn't until I used the COMBINATION of sucralfate with raniditine that I saw complete relief in my horse.

    You could also try a combination of sucralfate with ranatidine (Zantac from Costco). It is less expensive than the GG route and for some horses, it is more effective.

    Also, I find it very strange...
