No, Carol.
Buteless is Devils claw and yucca.  Both are mild anti inflammatories.

I think the turmeric works better, but my sample size is pretty small.

Lots of good info if you go looking. I use it for myself as well and will notice a difference if I skip a day without my concoction.

Belle is doing well, occasionally limps, not bad.  But we definitely keep her at a walk and with a light weight rider.  I am now adding flax to her diet, mostly because the Omega-3s in flax are also anti inflammatory. 
We may have her front knee exrayed again.  Jane is considering breeding her to a curly stallion for a curly gaited foal.  But we would have to know that carrying a foal would not be too much for her knee.

Well, I am about to switch Belle to buteless pellets.  She was definitely in pain yesterday while we were trimming her feet.  My farrier is so careful with her.  He kneels next to her, and lifts the foot only as far as absolutely necessary to get the nippers on her hoof.  And still she reared a bit and expressed quite a bit of pain.
So....buteless pellets and I will report back if there is any difference compared to the turmeric.
