All of the nutrients needed for hoof health

  • Contains biotin, lecithin, DL-methionine, copper, zinc, & other nutrients
Over 30 years of equine nutritional research, clinical trials and field testing have gone into every cup of Farrier's Formula®. While no single nutrient is the key to a healthy hoof, studies show that most horses with hoof problems respond to better overall nutrition. Farrier's Formula® provides lecithin, DL-methionine, ascorbic acid, copper, zinc, biotin, and other nutrients that allow the horse's liver and hoof corium to build and assemble a highly crosslinked hoof wall that is denser and more resistant to cracking or drying out. Farrier’s Formula® works because it furnishes all the nutrients known to be deficient if there is a problem with hoof growth or hoof quality. 

Farrier's Formula® Double Strength in SmartPaks

Feed at the replenishment feeding level (6 oz/170 g for a 1,000 lb horse) for horses with hoof problems. After feeding for 6 to 8 months and desired results have been achieved, the adult replenishment feeding level may be reduced to the maintenance feeding level (3 oz/85 g for a 1,000 lb horse).

    Farrier's Formula® is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 91.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good hoof supplement I have fed a hoof supplement to my horse for the last eight years. the last supplement I used changed manufacturers and seemed to be lagging - my horse's hooves were not as healthy as they had been. His hooves are improvig after a few months of feeding Farriers Formula.Also - he is a picky eater, but he seems to approve this supplement.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other supplement does it better! During my horse's pre-purchase exam in 2007, the vet mentioned that my horse could use a little help in the hoof department. My horse was a 4 year old sporthorse who had, unfortunately, inherited some of the not so great thuroughbred qualities regarding hoof health. Nothing drastic but his hooves were not the prettiest and were also a little tender. The vet recommended Farrier's Formula and I put my horse on it immediately. I saw great results; his hooves were stronger, he kept his shoes, and after continuous use of the product my farrier was able to extend the time between visits. My horse now goes 7-8 weeks between shoeings never throws shoes. Another great perk-his coat and tail improved as well! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good results At the recommendation of my farrier, I added Farrier's Formula to my mare's diet when she popped a quarter crack in the spring. It has since healed well, and she's got good, healthy hoof growth all around. I decided to give it to my gelding as well, who had trouble holding shoes since his move south from KY and NJ, and his hooves are growing faster but stronger and less brittle. I've joined my farrier in recommending FF to barnmates.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Product After moving from Illinois to Virginia, my horse, who never had any hoof issues before, had trouble adjusting to the more hot and humid spring weather. His hooves became soft and stopped growing. After one month on Farriers Formula his hooves were strong and had grown considerably. I would highly recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrier's Formula works for my kid!! My kid's 4 white stockinged feet were not handling the rock we had hauled in as part of the upgrade done to our farm. Even with her paddock layered with crushed rock and arena sand drawing any water away, the larger rock was leading to abscesses. Following the recommendation of my vet, she worked through one bag of Farrier's Formula Super Strength, and then switched to Farrier's Formula. No abscesses in 9 months, even with the wet and wild weather here in the Pacific Northwest. I'm a committed client for the well being of my kid!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definately worth the $! I have an OTTB with typical TB feet. I had him on this for a year(with fantastic results!) and then tried to switch to a cheaper brand, Well in 6 months time his feet were back to the way they were before Farriers formula... Never again! This supplement is well worth the extra cost. I wish it was available in smartpaks. Next month I'm going to try the double strength in hopes that that will have the same results!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have Tried several others with claims to have similar ingredients, but they didn't work and Farriers Formula absolutely does -- totally can trust what's in the bag, and I feed it along with Barn Bag. His feet are great, his coat has thickened, he's a much healthier and happier horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoof Supplement Time & Again I have a thoroughbred with "challenging" hooves. I have used this supplement for well over a decade with great results. From time to time I have switched to less expensive supplements only to be disappointed. This truly is the best hoof supplement available and most all horses eat it because it is in pellet form.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healing Hooves My Tennessee Walker's hooves had dry cracks after a wet, muddy winter; at the same time, my Arabian had a close call with white line disease. Farrier's Formula and Farrier's Formula 2 were both very helpful to healthy, strong hoof growth for both horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been using this supplement for a year on my 35 yr old QH and finally starting to see the results. It's taken a while but the hoof wall is finally looking solid again and she hasn't been lame since Fall. I like the bucket that it came in from Smartpak vs the vacuum packaging from another supplier. It stores much easier in the barn.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hoof Supplement I've had my Thoroughbred gelding on Farrier's Formula for nearly 5 months now, and his feet have improved dramatically. He was your typical Thoroughbred with soft, flat feet and a moderate trail horse (he's not my distance horse). His feet were so bad that I almost put him down twice last year, especially after he developed a cracked hoof in early October. My vet suggested Farrier's Formula.After the cracked hoof episode, my vet indicated that it would be a very long time before I'd ride him again. I started him on Farrier's Formula soon after and got him a pair of Renegade hoof boots, and my best Christmas present ever was a short ride 2.5 months later.After nearly 5 months, he's doing much, much better. The cracked hoof is nearly grown out, and his soles are developing some concavity and fairly hard. He did develop some cracks, but that may be because I had him on the initial dosing until a few weeks ago. After I talked to the Life Data folks, they think that his feet started growing too fast, so I cut him back a bit.Also, because my gelding was so chubby from not getting exercise when his feet were so bad, he's on free choice hay only. I cut out his grain entirely and just feed him 1 cup of regular strength Farrier's Formula as his "grain" so that he wouldn't feel like he was being cheated at meal time. Works out great!Lastly, I've tried lots of different hoof supplements over the years, giving each one 2-3 months at minimum. It's a little pricey, but I think that Farrier's Formula is the best one!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I have a horse that had terrible feet; thin, brittle hoof wall, abcess prone, etc. After he was turned out in the pasture for a few years without shoes his feet seemed to correct themselves somewhat, but I put him on this to prevent a return to what they were. If you are looking for a hoof supplement this one has the science to back it and my horses like the taste so it is easy to give. Be sure to stick with it though, it takes AT LEAST 6 months to see a change in a horses's hoof when started on a supplement.
