Farrier's Finish®

Farrier’s Finish® combats the “hoof eating” microbial invasions which cause white line disease, thrush, and poor hoof quality. It also supports correct hoof capsule moisture balance in excessively wet or dry conditions.

flaky horse hoof

 

There is not a day, while I am grooming my dressage horse Hansie that a barnmate walks by and stops in their tracks to comment on Hansie's healthy hooves. I was using another product on the outside of my horses hooves and they were flaking, also the right front toe was cracked.

After using Farrier's Finish each day, in a very short time, the flaking was gone as well as the crack. The color of the hoof is healthy and looks nourished. I cannot rave enough about Farrier's Finish and the staff at Life Data Labs for educating me on the care of my horse’s hooves.

In November 2012 I bought my horse Wayamo (Waikiki I from Weltmeyer x Disco-Tänzer), a Württemberg gelding who is now ten years old. Unfortunately Wayamo was underweight with an uneven distribution of muscle when I bought him. His hooves were the most worrisome problem because they were in an alarming state: various misalignments, poor horn quality and very thin soles.

I soon managed to improve my horse’s weight problem and his coat and mane shone brightly again. After a while he had built up his muscles too. All in all he was in reasonable condition if it weren’t for his hooves. Despite feeding each and every supplement from a variety of manufacturers over the years his problems didn’t really decrease. He still had brittle hooves, kept losing his shoes and developed sores and other hoof ulcerations. His hooves didn´t grow well so that the misalignments could not be compensated. My veterinarian and farrier took it in turns with regular visits to t reat his frequently occurring lameness.

In early 2016 a new farrier who came to alter the shoeing of my horse, one more time introduced a different approach. Even though the positioning of the hooves had significantly improved, my horse was barely able to stand in the stable aisle during shoeing without his shoes. The hoof substance was still very poor. My farrier suggested a consultation with Karen Zetsche from Life Data Labs. During this extensive talk she recommended feeding "Farrier’s Formula Double Concentrate“ as a hoof supplement in addition to oats and hay. Ms. Zetsche also suggested my horse probably suffered from the so called white line disease and recommended that I should also treat the hooves with " Farrier’s Finish“ and from now on dismiss all other hoof oils and greases.

I have been feeding the product for about five months now and apply "Farrier’s Finish“ almost daily. After a short period of time my farrier and I were able to see the improvement of the entire hoof structure–the horn began to grow faster, the hoof gained stability and even under extremely wet conditions the hooves would crack just minimally at the lower margin. Up to now no new inflammations have occurred and my horse is free from lameness.

Of course it will take a few more months before the hoof quality of my horse has been completely restored. Since his hooves are basically still growing at a slower rate than average it will take at least a year to complete new hoof growth with this feeding regime of Farrier´s Formula. It also became evident that six months or more prior to feeding " Farrier’s Formula“ Wayamo must have suffered from internal bleeding in his widened white line, probably even a minor surge of laminitis. After repeated consultations with Ms. Zetsche I know now that my gelding is perfectly adjusted diet-wise and I won’t have to change anything.

I feel competently advised and I can see steady improvements in my horse’s hoof condition. As I mentioned before there were no more occurrences of lameness and my horse lost a shoe only once. The diet has also had a positive influence on Wayamo’s physical fitness; he is more motivated and more powerful. My vet confirmed his good health.

For all these reasons this feed Farrier´s Formula – as well as "Farrier’s Finish“ – are for me significantly distinct from all comparable products currently on the market. It is the only feed supplement that was able to help my horse. Therefore I have no hesitation in highly recommending these products.

After five months of feeding "Farrier’s Formula Double Concentrate“ + Treatment with "Farrier’s Finish“, July 2016 (New hoof growth on both front and hind legs clearly visible. Just in the lower third of the hooves some crumbling horn can still be seen, but even there however I already notice the effect that Wayamo is not lame anymore, and has "good healthy” horn regrowth. There is just minimal cracking around the nails. Already no more loss of shoes and we are already seeing a more motivated horse.

Sally D. - Competitor

I regularly compete in riding competitions and it is very important that the horses I ride are kept in prime condition. When one of my gelding´s had poor hoof quality with cracks and Seedy Toe I asked Life Data Labs after meeting their Representative at the Badminton Horse Trials.

I followed their advice and began feeding Farrier´s Formula Double Concentrate in combination with the hoof disinfectant “Farrier´s Finish”.

After three months of feeding he was able to maintain his shoes again. Healthy hoof growth and a shiny coat were noticeable. He appeared to have more vitality and competed well again.

I am grateful to Life Data for the recommendation and help and would have no hesitation to recommend these extremely good products; they really work!

Simone L. - Horse Owner

For the past two years I have fed Farriers’ Formula Double Concentrate together with the application of Farriers’ Finish to my horse, Estelle. This regime was recommended and supplied to me by my long-term farrier.

The horn of Estelle’s hooves has improved significantly through these measures. Until four weeks ago I was able to ride her without shoes. Unfortunately she was increasingly wearing down her hooves, so the farrier shoed her forelegs. I was initially very skeptical if the shoes would stay on, because Estelle has a very powerful impulse and thrust from the hindquarters. However because the huf horn is now in a really good condition the shoes stayed in place.

I am delighted to have followed this method of feeding and treatment for a very young horse; ensuring optimal hoof structure and quality with Farriers’ Formula and Farriers’ Finish before applying shoes. The time and money have been an excellent investment for this young horse. Estelle has made tremendous development because of the good nutrient supplements. Jürgen, being an excellent farrier, has contributed to this success.

I hope in spring I will be able to have new photos made so that you will be able to see how the story goes on.

Best regards and a good weekend
