Classic Hoof | The Science Behind Classic Hoof

Insight into the science behind "Classic Hoof"-:

  • Keratin, the primary constituent of horse’s hooves is composed of a number of proteins. Proteins themselves consist of collections of different amino acids in varying numbers, each with their own unique chemical composition and spatial arrangements. Different amino acids have varying availability, partly dependent on diet. Eight amino acids are called 'the essential amino acids', they coming exclusively from the intake of digestible matter and from which the rest are made, largely according to demand by the horse itself. The composition of "Classic Hoof" takes this into account. e.g. Lysine, one of these 'essential' amino acids is found most abundantly in animal/protein rich diets. The equine diet, being generally low in protein can frequently be deficient in Lysine, especially when larger than normal amounts are required.
  • Zinc, a mineral with so many attributes, is essential for horse’s hooves. In this context it is important as it strengthens the 'White Line Junction' of the hoof, which bonds the soft inner tissue to the hoof wall.
