Dear Dr. Dan,
I am writing for my boss, he has an Appaloosa whose main and tail is very tangled. Could this be from an essential amino acid or mineral deficiency. We would gladly take any suggestions that you may have on this issue. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your reply.

Great Question… Honestly in most horses it is typical to twist and tangle. BUT you are wise to consider vitamins and minerals for any coat/mane/tail/hoof “problem”. The single most beneficial supplement to consider would be Hoof Check supplement. The audio on “what to feed your horse” would be helpful for sure as would the article on salt and minerals— page 21 of our magazine.
