Poor hoof condition is common in all types of horses and ponies and can lead to practical problems such as
splitting of the hoof and losing shoes as well as foot pain and lameness.
The number one ingredient in any hoof supplement must be Biotin as
by far the most scientific evidence for an effect on hoof growth and
quality exists for this nutrient.
4Feet Plus contains a very high level of bioavailable Biotin (75mg/day
for a 500kg horse). As Biotin is absorbed from the hindgut, 4Feet Plus
also contains a high dose of a protected live yeast to help ensure a
healthy hindgut environment. Organic Zinc is included as horn is mainly
composed of a protein called keratin (a structural protein composed
of fibres that makes up horn, skin, hair, wool, feathers and nails) and
Zinc is vital for protein metabolism. Copper deficiency can have an
adverse effect on horn and hair quality. The correct ratio between
Zinc and Copper is important as these two trace elements interact.
Manganese is integral to formation of the internal structures of the hoof.
Manganese is low in grains and the amount provided by forage can vary
dramatically. In addition, manganese is poorly absorbed so deficiency is
Methionine is a key amino acid as the production of horn
involves the interaction between Methionine and keratin
to produce a strong structure.
MSM is a bioavailable source of sulphur and sulphur in turn is present
in high amounts in keratin. Changes in hoof growth and or quality can
take 3-6 months to be apparent. After 3-6 months the new hoof growth
below the coronet band should be smooth and the growth lines should
be vertical and horizontal.
