Farrier's Formula

Over 25 years of equine nutritional research, clinical trials and field testing have gone into every cup of Farrier's Formula®.

While no single nutrient is the key to a healthy hoof, studies show that most horses with hoof problems respond to better overall nutrition.

Farrier's Formula® provides lecithin, DL- methionine, ascorbic acid, copper, zinc, biotin, and other nutrients that allow the horse's liver and hoof corium to build and assemble a highly crosslinked hoof wall that is denser and more resistant to cracking or drying out.

Farrier’s Formula® works because it furnishes all the nutrients known to be deficient if there is a problem with hoof growth and or hoof quality.

Keratex Hoof Shield


Keratex Hoof Shield is the ultimate show quality cosmetic lacquer, giving hooves a superb high gloss finish which is hard wearing and durable. It has none of the mess and stickiness associated with oils and greases.

Consolidates shelly hooves by forming a hard protective layer and can be used to tighten slightly loose clenches. Dries to a hard transparent surface in seconds. Degrease the hoof with acetone. Sand paper the hoof wall if it is rough.

When first using Keratex Hoof Shield apply two to three coats to a properly prepared hoof. Thereafter, a weekly application should suffice. Use acetone to remove Keratex Hoof Shield from the hoof.

Keratex Hoof Hardener

This product is formulated to produce a tougher hoof capsule reducing the moisture content and increasing the durability of the hoof.

Foals and weanlings often have weak hoof capsules during the first few months of life. Weak horn often develops splits and cracks that allow moisture and bacteria to enter the sensitive structures which invariably cause a painful abcess; using Keratex daily on the sole and lower wall during wet weather provides a tough, more resilient hoof with far fewer problems. your farrier will appreciate the effort.

Weaker, shelly walls respond quite well to daily treatment with a thin coat of Keratex hardener. Painting the cracks and crevices eliminates the moist, dark areas that harbor bacteria and fungi therefore keeping hooves healthier.

Keratex Medicated Hoof & Leg Scrub

Keratex Medicated Hoof & Leg Scrub is formulated using revolutionary antimicrobial Byotrol technology (www.byotrol.com). The product foams on contact and can be scrubbed or sponged onto hooves, frogs, soles, heels and pasterns. Importantly it can also be used on leg abrasions to thoroughly cleanse and disinfect scabs or damaged skin, making it ideal for mud fever, injuries or cracked heels or simply to maintain a bacteria-free environment on the legs and hooves.

Keratex Mud Shield Powder


Keratex Mud Shield Powder guards against the effects of mud and water on horses' legs and body. It will thoroughly disinfect the skin areas as well. Unlike creams and ointments which contribute to further softening of the skin, Keratex Mud and Shield Powder allows the skin to breath while repelling water and mud particles.

During wet weather mud and water can cause serious problems which affect the skin on horses legs and body.

Keratex Mud Shield Powder has a unique waterproofing action which simply stops these problems before they start by preventing water from softening the skin. It is this softening effect of continual water saturation which allows mud particles to enter the pores of the skin and cause irritation, which can then lead to further complications. In addition to waterproofing the hide, Keratex Mud Shield Powder also contains a powerful disinfectant to maintain the skin in a healthy condition.

Keratex Hoof Wash

Keratex Hoof Wash is a unique and very economical disinfecting soak for the hooves and lower legs, which has been produced for those horses that would benefit from a cooling ten minute antibacterial soak.

This is really effective for:
  • horses that find cold water soothing when they have mud-related scabs; and to cool the legs
  • owners to use in between poultice changes; horses with smelly frogs.
A one litre bottle will dilute in plain water to make 125 litres to give you plenty of scrubs or soaks for your money. Simply add a capful of Hoof Wash to half a bucket of clean water and you will find that this product will really go the distance for you.

Keratex Hoof Wash is a good addition to every grooming kit to help keep the hooves as clean as you can.

Keratex Hoof Gel

Keratex Hoof Gel waterproofs the entire hoof capsule, protecting your horse’s feet from the softening and weakening effects of moisture, such as boggy paddocks, humidity or wet bedding. Water will form droplets and run off the hoof wall and sole much like rain off a waxed jacket, keeping the hooves strong and healthy and maintaining breathability. Great for hooves that soften and crack in wet conditions.

Used as a standard hoof treatment throughout the year, Keratex Hoof Gel will maintain the moisture content of the hoof at the same natural level, rain or shine, Summer or Winter, turned out or stabled in. This is the answer to maintaining hooves in a healthy condition throughout the year. Hooves will naturally become stronger, harder and more able to resist the stresses of shoeing and work. Because of the waterproofing effect, hooves are easier to clean and dry. Keratex Hoof Gel also contains a natural disinfectant to maintain hooves in a healthy condition. If you are showing or going to an event, all you need to do is apply Keratex Hoof Gel, let it dry, and then buff it with a cloth to have a super natural sheen on the hooves. Keratex Hoof Gel does not attract bedding, grass and dust in the same way as grease and oil type hoof dressings.

Keratex Cooling Gel

Keratex Cooling Gel is the perfect way to cool your horse's muscles, tendons and ligaments after exercise. It is also an effective way of preventing heat and inflammation in horses on box rest, or during periods of travel.

Warm legs are more flexible on the inside and this can lead to pulled tendons and damaged ligaments so this cooling gel is a great way of keeping your horse's legs cool during or after exercise, stabling or travel.

Unlike other cooling gels in the market, Keratex Cooling Gel actually cools by evaporation, making it extra effective and completely unique in the way that it works.

Keratex Cooling Gel does not contain menthol or camphor. Menthol and camphor simply temporarily numb the hot nerve receptors, which in turn enhances the cold nerve receptors, so the horse, and the person applying it, are given the illusion of a cooling effect. Keratex Cooling Gel will actually cool the internal structures of the legs with a marked difference in temperature, making it a safe and highly effective product.

Keratex Hoof Moisturiser

This product is specifically designed to address dehydrated, straw-like or brittle hooves to restore natural health and vitality. Keratex Hoof Moisturiser has an ‘intelligent’ formula which works by restoring the correct moisture levels in the inside of the hooves and then maintaining this level for optimum hoof condition. It will stop hooves from cracking and breaking up through dehydration and it will also prevent those annoying floor-side flaps which can occur in warmer months. You can apply Keratex Hoof Moisturiser all over the hooves including the hoof capsule, so frogs, coronary band and heels will all benefit. Additionally, Keratex Hoof Moisturiser has the extra bonus of encouraging new hoof growth by keeping the coronary band tissue supple. When applied regularly Hoof Moisturiser gives a smooth and solid finish to the hoof wall as well as restoring the correct moisture levels.
