How Farrier's Formula® was Developed

Farrier's Formula® is the first supplement of its kind to be scientifically based on the laboratory testing of blood collected from hundreds of horses. Each blood sample was tested for more than 175 different factors. By entering this data into a computerized database, Dr. Gravlee was able to determine through statistical analysis which nutrients were lacking in the horses with poor quality hooves. Once the deficient nutrients were identified, Dr. Gravlee then produced Farrier's Formula® nutritional hoof supplement. In every scoop of Farrier's Formula® there is thirty years of experience and research with numerous clinical studies and field trials.

In 1988, Dr. Gravlee subjected Farrier's Formula® to independent university research to again prove its efficacy. The research was done at the University of Edinburgh by Dr. Susan Kempson and is available by request.

How it Works

Farrier's Formula® provides the nutrient support that horses need to build strong connective tissue proteins. Connective tissue proteins are the microscopic framework of the mammalian body, giving form and strength to all major organs and tissues. Of all the protein in the body over 40% is connective tissue protein, making it by far the most abundant.

Connective tissue proteins combine to form fibers which may crosslink with adjacent fibers. The joined fibers strength is dependent on the number of crosslinks. These crosslinks are chemically expensive for the body to produce. If the right chemicals in the form of nutrients from the diet are not present, fewer crosslinks can be made; the tissue being constructed or repaired will be weaker. 

The hoof is connective tissue that depends on its many crosslinks for strength and resiliency. Thus a strong healthy hoof can only be built through proper nutrition.
