What do our customers say ?
"I just wanted to say thank you for an excellent product - Robust Hoof Supplement. My farrier said my horse had shocking feet and I felt so awful when everyone else at the yard hard horses with such strong feet. Being a Thoroughbred his hooves were very soft and crumbly and couldn't keep a shoe for more than 4 weeks. After 6 months using SNP Robust Hoof he has strong feet - the farrier is amazed! Now his feet are stronger than some of his stable pals which is excellent. Thanks a lot"! Katie Ainsworth.
"I just wanted to say thank you ! I buy Robust Hoof Supplement for my 8 year old gelding. I could never ride him in summer as his feet just wouldn't grow, so when he lost a shoe that was that. Now thanks to Robust Hoof his feet get done every six weeks and the shoes stay on. I am not afraid to ride him any more, in fact his feet will now stand up to jumping ! I have just bought some for a friend who wants to try it on her horse because she has seen the progress that my gelding has made. THANKS AGAIN"! Donna Stratford.

No foot, no horse! Hoof horn is composed mainly of protein materials strengthened by keratin. Keratin is a special hard type of protein which acts like a form of super glue to give the hoof a tough rigid structure.
Robust Hoof has been specially formulated to provide the nutritional building blocks needed to grow healthy hoof horn thus helping the foot to become this tough rigid structure. Robust Hoof includes all the raw materials needed to assist the absorption of the required nutrients and transport them by the blood stream to the hoof tissues where they will be built up into new horn.
Biotin is a water soluble B group vitamin widely distributed in feed stuffs but often in a form unavailable to the animal. Cereals, with the exception of maize, are particularly poor sources. Performance horses fed on high levels of cereals and cereal by-products may be biotin deficient. Feeding biotin is the most successful method for improving hoof quality in horses and other livestock. It works mainly because of its role in the production and deposition of keratin. To be fully effective it needs the addition of other nutrients which are essential to build up the rest of the hoof structure.
MSM is a naturally occurring form of bioavailable sulphur, often deficient in feedstuff's. It is an essential component of connective tissue, the proteins which make up muscle, joints, skin, hair, hoof horn and keratin. Many people who use MSM themselves report that their fingernails grow faster and are less brittle. MSM has the same effect on the horses hoof.
Inositol works in synergy with biotin. It is essential for the production of lipoproteins which carry nutrients in the blood stream to the hoof tissues.
Contains Methionine & Lysine
Proteins are made up of amino acids. Most amino acids can be synthesized by the body but methionine and lysine must be provided in the diet. These are vital building blocks in the construction of the hoof.
Contains Zinc, Copper & Manganese
These trace minerals are essential for the proper functioning of many enzyme systems. They play a part in the formation of keratin and collagen which are vital for sustaining healthy skin, hair, cartilage, bone and hooves. We have provided all of these minerals in organic (Bioplex) form which are more available to the animal and do not interact with other nutrients in the diet.
Contains Cooked Whole Linseed
One of the best natural sources of available biotin. Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which are involved in the production of lipoproteins. The effectiveness can quickly be seen by the improvement in coat condition which is made up of similar proteins to hooves.
A complementary feeding stuff to be mixed with the daily feed as directed.
Animals of 13 hands and over: For hooves that are cracked and crumbling feed 1 level measure (75g) per day. It will take between 3 and 6 months for healthy hoof horn to regenerate.
To maintain hooves in good condition once new growth is well established feed half a measure per day.
For ponies below 13 hands in height feed half of the above amounts.
A 4kg tub contains 50 days supply at full measure and 100 days at maintenance level.
