Gwf Nutrition Farrier's Aid for Horses

  • 5kg Tub £22.50


Farrier’s Aid is a high specification complementary feed supplement containing a combination of 13 active nutraceuticals. Suitable for all horses and ponies, Farrier’s Aid provides all the necessary elements needed to maintain healthy hooves.

Active Ingredient Why we use it
Biotin Biotin has been shown by extensive trial work to aid the hardening of hoof horn and so prevent cracking. It is an essential requirement for keratin production in the hoof, laminae and the coronary band and is critical to maintain overall hoof integrity and condition.
Collagen Matrix Collagen is the most abundant protein in animals and forms the main protein of connective tissue. It has great tensile strength and is the main component of ligaments and tendons.
Concentrated Yeast Derived Oligosaccharides Oligosaccharides provide a feed source for beneficial bacteria and support the natural expulsion of antagonists found in feed and the environment.
Copper, Manganese & Vitamin C

All three are essential to maintaining the growth of tendons and ligaments, the formation of cartilage and the elasticity of connective tissue. It is very important for the working horse to maintain its freedom of movement and suppleness when in motion.

A complex structure like the hoof of the equine and the pressures it endures will include substantial supportive networks of tissues, as a basis for hoof integrity.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) MSM is a natural organic source of sulphur that is an essential constituent of amino acids and protein. Most sulphur is found in high protein organs and tissues, like hair and hooves and it is indicative that, to form these high protein tissues, a supply of organic sulphur is necessary to maintain this metabolic function.
Zinc Horses with poor horn quality have been seen to respond when extra zinc has been added to their diet. It helps to maintain keratin, which is the fibrous protein that gives the wall of the hoof its hardness. The amount of keratin found in hooves can vary and this determines how tough the wall of the hoof is.

Contains the Oatinol® Delivery System

For all of the above elements to be utilised, they have to be absorbed from the horses’ digestive tract. Oatinol supplies natural antioxidants, polar lipids, beta glucans and galactolipid emulsifiers, required to maintain gut cell integrity, maintain the lining of the gut, support the immune system and aid the absorption of active ingredients, vitamins and trace elements.

Active Ingredient Why we use it
Oatinol - Galactolipid Natural Emulsifiers Galactolipids are a combination of sugar and fat molecules that help establish the perfect medium for enzyme activity in the gut to absorb feed components.
Oatinol - Natural
Tocotrienol Antioxidants
Tocotrienol antioxidants are found naturally in oat bran. This tocotrienol form of vitamin E is 40 to 60 times more readily recycled in membrane systems and supports tissue integrity.
Oatinol - Oat Derived
Beta Glucans
Beta glucans provide nourishment for beneficial fibre degrading microbes and helps maintain a high level of natural immunity.
Oatinol - Polar Lipids Polar lipids are found in high concentrations in cell membranes and are essential for tissue integrity and the controlled passage of materials into and out of cells.
