Product Description

What is it?

Poor hoof condition is a common problem with many horses and ponies and can be the result of a poor diet, their genetics or the environment. However, if this problem is left, the hoof could become prone to cracking and splitting.

To combat this, we have developed a range of hoof supplements.

4Feet hoof supplement is specially formulated with an essential mix of micronutrients including Biotin and Calcium which improve the condition of the hoof and horn, reduce cracking and splitting, decrease foot sensitivity and promote healthy skin and hair.

4Feet+ is a super strength formulation for the most challenged feet. With a combination of seven active ingredients it is designed to be fed to overcome the most challenging of conditions. Once improvements can be seen, then we recommend moving to feeding the standard 4Feet to maintain healthy feet.

What’s in it?

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 D-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.

Saccharomyces Cerevisiae When feeding live yeast-based probiotics to horses it is essential that they are fed in a form which protects them from stomach acid so they reach the hindgut alive. The type of yeast used by Science Supplements is protected by an outer capsule which is capable of withstanding acidic conditions, but will then be broken down in the hindgut releasing the live yeast.

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 not uncommon.

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.

Ingredients & Feeding Guide | 4Feet

  • Pony - approximately 250kg | 2 Scoops
  • Horse - approximately 500kg | 3 Scoops

Due to the fact that horn growth is relatively slow, it is likely to take several months of feeding 4Feet before there is a noticeable effect on hoof quality.

Mix thoroughly with feed and split between meals where possible.
