Farrier's Formula Double Concentrate is a hoof supplement that provides nutrients such as phospholipids, omega fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and important amino acid “protein building blocks”. These nutrients enable horses to build strong connective tissue proteins important for healthy hoof structure and growth. Over 30 years of research, clinical trials and field testing validate the effectiveness of Farrier's Formula.The formula is doping free and can be fed to competition horses.

Problems that the formula addresses are weak hoof structure that leads to hoof wall problems such as quarter cracks, toe cracks, sand cracks, brittle hoof walls and hoof wall separation. These hoof wall defects often create an environment ideal for the microbial invasions associated with white line disease and crumbling horn. Also addressed are horses with thin soft soles that are susceptible to sudden lameness from bruising, and horses recovering from laminitis or founder whose cohesive bond between the outer hoof wall and the coffin bone has been damaged.

Farrier’s Formula supplies the nutrients required for building strong hoof capsule connective tissue in the correct balance and ratio. It also promotes strong and fast growth of the hoof wall, sole, frog, and heel. Farrier’s Formula provides proper nutrition to “grow out” wall cracks, strengthen and thicken the hoof wall and sole, reduce the likelihood of microbial invasions and bruising, and assist with laminitis recovery. Farrier’s Formula also promotes a glossy more deeply colored coat and strengthened connective tissues of the joints and ligaments.

 

Ingredients and Guaranteed Analysis

Ingredients

Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Soy Protein Concentrate, Lecithin, Yeast Culture Dehydrated, DL-Methionine, Silicon Dixoide, Biotin, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Zinc oxide, Basic Copper Chloride, Basic Cobaltous Carbonate, Calcium Iodate.

• Alfalfa meal is highly palatable to horses. It contains a high Carotene content. The horse converts Carotene to Vitamin A as needed.
• Soy protein concentrate is rich in Amino Acids which are required building blocks of tissue. Soy protien concentrate also funishes the amino acid Tyrosine which is a component of thyroid hormone and the neurotransmitter dopamine. Tyrosine is an essential Amino Acid and therefore must be available in the diet. Research performed at Life Data Labs in the 1970s - 1980s established the relationship of this nutrient with hoof problems and obesity related syndromes. Tyrosine supplementation is the natural means of regulating these syndromes, and has always contributed to the effectiveness of Farrier's Formula®.
• Lecithin contains Phospholipids and Omega Fatty Acids which add strength and pliability to connective tissues, and are also critical for proper moisture balance. Skin, hoof and hair are connective tissues.
• Yeast Culture is a rich source of B-Vitamins necessary for good metabolism and healthy dermis (skin, hoof and hair).
• DL-Methionine is a sulfur-containing Amino Acid deficient in all commonly fed grains (corn, oats, barley, etc.). It is important for the proper utilization of lipids and building the sulfur crosslinks that add strength to connective tissue proteins.
• Biotin is a highly active member of the B-Complex Vitamins. Biotin serves essential roles in Fatty Acid metabolism.
• Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) supplementation is traditionally believed to be unnecessary in horses. However, research conducted by Life Data Labs established that stabled or stressed horses often have minimal blood levels of Ascorbic Acid and therefore benefit from supplementation. Vitamin C is required for healthy and strong connective tissue.
• Silicon is an element utilized in the formation of connective tissue and bone. Research has shown that silicon supplementation strengthens bone, connective tissue, and has other beneficial effects when interacting with other nutrients.
• Zinc is required for the healthy maturing of keratin - a major component of the outer layers of dermal tissue. Proper keratin formation is important for wound healing, skin health, and hoof structue.
• Copper is an important component of a multitude of metabolic functions. A Copper deficiency leads to a number of abnormal conditions including defects in the pigmentation and strength of hair and hoof.
• Cobalt is essential for the production of Vitamin B-12 by microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract of the horse, and is important in the formation of red blood cells and healthy skin.
• Calcium Iodate provides an easily utilized form of iodine. Iodine is a component of thyroid hormones which regulate basal metabolism. A deficiency of thyroid hormones is known as hypothyroidism and leads to a multitude of disease conditions including poor hair coat and hoof quality.

Pelleting and nitrogen packaging reduces oxidative damage to nutrients
Oxidation of nutrients is a primary cause of nutrient degradation resulting in loss of shelf life. The pelleting procedure reduces the surface area of nutrients exposed to the oxygen present in surrounding air, and packaging with nitrogen further reduces nutrient exposure to oxygen. The result allows Life Data Labs the unique ability to provide fresh product with an extended life of nutrient stability.
