Connective tissue proteins combine to form fibers which may crosslink with adjacent fibers. The joined fibers strength is dependent on the number of crosslinks. These crosslinks are chemically expensive for the body to produce. If the right chemicals (in the form of nutrients from the diet) are not present, fewer crosslinks can be made and the tissue being constructed or repaired will be weaker. The hoof is connective tissue that depends on its many crosslinks for strength and resiliency. A strong healthy hoof can only be built through proper nutrition.
