Farrier’s Formula is an alfalfa based pelleted nutritional supplement formulated for horses to promote healthy dermal tissues including hoof growth.
Farrier’s Formula Original
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 provides the nutrients needed by horses to build strong structural and connective tissue proteins (hooves, skin, tendon, ligaments, bones, joints). Developed almost thirty years ago, it has always contained nutrients such as phospholipids, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Many of these nutrients have only recently been recognized as important “players” to help produce healthy dermal tissues.
Farrier’s Formula 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.
Within as little as two weeks of feeding Farrier’s Formula one should see a glossy, more deeply colored coat. By nine to ten weeks a new band of strong, healthy growth will be clearly visible at the coronary band, and the difference in the structure of the horn in the periople can be seen with the naked eye. Internal benefits, while more difficult to see, are just as dramatic.
