chiquita522: Joint Supplements

I need a joint supplement for my mare. She's an 11 year Quarter Horse, and build like a halter horse with feet. Since the day I got her, 7 years ago, she's been a "clicker." My vet has told me that it's probably air bubbles in her joint fluid that pop when she moves. He's also said that because she's done it since she was younger, it shouldn't be a problem.

Kelly, sadly, has been plagued with on and off lameness. Some we can clearly identify, others just come out of the blue.

For the last 3 years, I've had her on the Hoof & Coat Joint Formula. Can't remember who produces it, though. When she's on it (and SeE) consistinly, she's sound. Since I've left for college, my mom took her off all supplements (except a bit of SeE).
Now that I'm trying to get her to school, though, I know that I have to get her on the supplements that she needs.

Any suggestions on joint supplements that aren't super expensive and seem to work well?

Try MSM. It's absolutely wonderful for the joints of horses of all ages.

I've had 2 vets recommend Corta-Flex to me and we used it on an old lesson horse and it worked well. I just started me own horse on it, so I couldn't tell you how it's working for him yet...
