Additional Product Info
Farriers Choice is a nutritional powder supplement to assist stronger and healthier hooves. Farriers Choice maintains hoof quality by supporting good growth and contributing towards strong, resilient hard hoof horn through it’s unique ingredient combination.
Biotin is included at a high concentration, because there are a number of clinical studies showing an improvement in hoof quality and condition, and growth rate from long-term feeding of biotin to horses with hoof horn problems (Comben et al., 1984; Buffa et al., 1992; Geyer & Schulze, 1994; Josseck et al., 1995; Zenker et al., 1995; Reilly et al., 1998). Biotin needs to be fed ongoing for horses prone to hoof problems.
Zinc and Copper are essential microminerals that are key for healthy hoof horn and are deficient in forages. Supplementation of zinc is worthwhile because low quality hoof horn and white line disease can be linked to suboptimal zinc intakes (Coenen & Spitzlei, 1997; Hihami, 1999).
Seaweed is a traditional supplement for healthy hooves. Seaweed is rich in iodine, which counteracts the natural deficiencies in forage. Dietary iodine shortage causes coarse, dry keratinised tissues (Safer, 2011), which affects the hair, skin and hooves.
MSM and Methionine are rich sources of sulphur which is an integral part of the hoof protein keratin, so supplementation can improve intrinsic tensile strength of hoof horn.
The unique formulation of Farriers Choice promotes hoof growth, improves bonding within the hoof wall and contributes towards resilience and hardness of the hoof horn. It is ideal for horses prone to cracks, splitting and crumbling of the hoof horn, where slow growth is a problem, and for those with brittle or soft hoof walls.
