Farrier’s Formula® is an alfalfa based pelleted nutritional supplement formulated for horses to promote healthy dermal tissues including hoof growth.
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.
