New Farnam® Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH Hoof & Connective Tissue Supplement features advanced formula for hoof, tendon & ligament nutrition. Athletic talent and pedigree alone won’t carry your horse into the winner’s circle or down the trail. He needs healthy hooves and strong legs under him. That’s why Farnam developed new Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH Hoof & Connective Tissue Supplement. Formulated by an equine PhD nutritionist and endorsed by farriers, Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH supplement provides extra benefits where your horse needs them most: supporting tendons, ligaments AND hooves. Horseshoer’s Secret® supplement has long been a popular Farnam® product, but this new extra-strength formula offers peace of mind because you know that you have done what you can to serve your horse’s unique hoof and connective tissue needs. Veterinarian-recommended Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH supplement provides optimum nutrition for strong healthy hooves, tendons and ligaments — including 25 mg of biotin per 2 oz. serving — to keep hooves durable, hydrated and flexible. Plus, the unique extruded nuggets support proper digestion of nutrients. This addition to the Horseshoer’s Secret® product line is ideal for horses that need more support than others, due to genetic predisposition, tough environment or rigorous performance demands.

Easy-to-use extruded nuggets are available in two convenient packaging options: a 7.5 lb. Farnam Fresh Keeper Bucket and a handy 30-day, 3.75 lb. bag that can be used as a refill. Feed Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH supplement year-round to provide vital nutritional support for your horse’s foundation, no matter what kind of riding you do. Horseshoer’s Secret® EXTRA STRENGTH Hoof & Connective Tissue Supplement is designed to work hand in hand with Horseshoer’s Secret® Deep Penetrating Hoof Conditioner and Horseshoer’s Secret® Hoof Sealant, topical products that condition and protect.
