PHOENIX, Ariz. --June 26, 2004-- Healthy hooves are an absolute necessity for any type of horse. For this reason, horse owners rely on the craftsmanship and wisdom of their farriers. The American Farrier’s Association (AFA) has recently partnered with Farnam Companies, Inc. to officially recognize the company’s Horseshoer’s Secret ® Hoof Supplement. This alliance will help expose more horse owners to the supplement and its benefits, as well as educate them on the importance of regular hoof care.

“Working with a certified farrier is essential for proper hoof care maintenance. It’s also helpful to add an effective hoof supplement, such as Farnam’s Horseshoer’s Secret, to the horse’s diet,” said Bryan Quinsey, executive director of the AFA. “Farnam provides valuable products to the horse community, and the AFA is pleased to recommend this proven hoof supplement to our clients.”

Horseshoer’s Secret ® is scientifically designed to provide optimum nutrition for healthy hooves. The unique pellet formula contains only pure and digestible ingredients, including biotin, complete protein, mineral complexes, key amino acids, yeast culture and omega-3 fatty acids. These nutrients work together to help prevent cracked hooves, strengthen hoof walls, and restore normal hoof growth.

“The AFA helps to maintain the highest standards in the farrier industry,” said Chris Jacobi, president of Farnam’s Horse Products Division. “We’re excited that our Horseshoer’s Secret brand has been recommended by this top professional group, which provides an important service to horses and their owners.”

Since 1971, the American Farrier’s Association has been promoting the art and science of the profession, and serving as a representative of farriery interests within the international horse world. The association encourages standards of proper hoof care through the education of farriers, horse owners and other horse enthusiasts. They act as an advocate for both the horse and farrier in relations with veterinarians, trainers, horse owners, breed and sport associations, and state and federal government agencies.
