The Original Hoof Supplement
The importance of nutrition to the growth and quality of a healthy hoof was unheard of in 1979 when Farrier's Formula® (formerly named Hoof and Hair) was developed and introduced by J. Frank Gravlee, DVM, MS, CNS. The concept of "feeding the hoof" was born and a new segment of the equine industry was created.
Farrier's Formula® was developed to provide the nutrients needed to enable horses to build strong structural and connective tissue proteins (tendon, ligaments, bones, joints). Developed almost thirty years ago, it has always contained nutrients such as phospholipids, omega fatty acids, etc. that have only recently been recognized as important "players" to help produce healthy dermal tissues.
It has been the #1 recommended product by farriers in the U.S. for twelve consecutive years and is the "gold standard" by which imitation products are compared. Rival manufacturers' unsupported claims for products directly imitating Farrier's Formula® should be treated with suspicion. Farrier's Formula® is the first product of its kind based on conclusive scientific research and published in referred journals.
The nutrients in Farrier's Formula® Double Concentrate important for a healthy hoof are provided at twice the concentration compared to the original Farrier's Formula® with the taste that horses love. The Farrier's Formula® Double Concentrate 5 Kilos delivers twice the number of daily doses compared to 5 kg of original Farrier's Formula®. This equates to a 60 day supply for a 450 kg horse at the Adult Replenishment Feeding Level or 120 days when feeding at the Adult Maintenance Feeding Level - with the added benefit of being more economical to feed compared to original Farrier's Formula®.
Farrier's Formula® and Farrier's Formula® Double Concentrate provide nutrients such as phospholipids, omega fatty acids, and important amino acid "protein building blocks" that enable horses to build strong structural and connective tissue proteins that are important for healthy hoof structure and growth.
