NutriScience Farriers Choice
Farriers Choice is a complementary feed with a unique combination of biotin, D-L Methionine, lysine sulphur-rich MSM, the seaweed Ascophyllum nodosum, plus essential microminerals zinc and copper, which provide the building blocks for hoof horn and supports the manufacture of keratin (the protein of the hoof wall). Farriers Choice maintains hoof quality by supporting good growth and contributing towards strong, resilient hard hoof horns.
Biotin is included at a high concentration because there are a number of clinical studies showing an improvement in hoof quality and condition, and growth rate from long-term feeding of biotin to horses with hoof horn problems. Biotin needs to be fed ongoing for horses prone to hoof problems. Zinc and copper are essential microminerals that are key for healthy hoof horns and are deficient in forages. Seaweed is a traditional supplement for healthy hooves and is rich in iodine, which counteracts the natural deficiencies in forage. MSM and methionine are rich sources of sulphur which is an integral part of the hoof protein keratin. The unique formulation of Farriers Choice promotes hoof growth, improves bonding within the hoof wall, and contributes towards resilience and hardness of the hoof horn. It is ideal for horses prone to cracks, splitting, and crumbling of the hoof horn, where slow growth is a problem, and for those with brittle or soft hoof walls.
