Farrier’s Formula for Horses


Farrier’s Formula addresses the need for ‘feeding the hoof,’ recognising that a horse will only perform at its best when its hooves are effectively managed. The original hoof care supplement since 1979, Farrier’s Formula is the recommended remedy of United States farriers for 12 consecutive years, utilising 30 years of equine research and experience in one effective product.



Horses’ hooves require a broad spectrum of nutrients to maintain optimal condition and Farrier’s Formula is specially blended to supply all the essential nutrients that are key to hoof growth, repair and maintenance. Enriched with Biotin, Farrier’s Formula promotes the internal and external health of hooves in the most depleted of conditions. Safe to be fed to horses with laminitis.

*Farrier’s Formula does not contain added sugar or molasses. The daily intake of starches, carbohydrates (WSC and NFC), and sugars from Farrier’s Formula is very low, and is insignificant relative to the starch, sugar and carbohydrate intake in the total diet.
**The iron content in Farrier’s Formula is derived from the pellet conditioner (hydrated sodium calcium aluminosilicate, natural clay) in the form of iron oxide. The intestinal absorption of iron from iron oxide is minimal; therefore Farrier’s Formula provides a minimal and insignificant amount of absorbable iron. If iron supplementation is desirable another form of iron such as iron proteinates, or other bio-available sources of iron should be utilized.
***Farrier’s Formula does not contain added potassium; however potassium is contained in minor concentrations with some of the ingredients such as alfalfa. Considering the small amount of product, the total level of potassium intake from Farrier’s Formula relative to the intake in the total diet is not significan
