I would like
to take this opportunity to tell you what a great product Formula4
When I first started to use this, it was for one of my Appaloosas. He hasn't navicular,
or laminitis. However, his hooves were in such poor quality that my farrier made
casts for his feet to keep them from falling apart. He lost shoes constantly,
and his hooves literally fell apart if he came anywhere near standing water. In
addition he was very low heeled. After 6 months, my farrier was able to get him
to a point where with 4 wk visits, and special shoes, and constant maintenance
on my end, he at least had hooves.
They still looked very bad, but I thought that was probably the best they would
Then I saw an advertisement in John Lyons magazine. Knowing that products don't
get advertised there, without John's endorsement, I decided to give it a try.
I did not tell my farrier, because he is completely against supplements. I wanted
to see what he noticed, and what I noticed. My farrier was out just 2 wks after
I started him on it, and I had noticed nothing. My farrier made a comment that
his horn walls are looking good. In the next couple of wks, I noticed he was getting
more white spots on his coat, and he had an overall shine that he didn't have
before. On the farriers next visit, he took one look at my horse and said "Your
horse is breaking out in Appaloosa". When he picked up the first hoof to
work on it, he put it back down, stood up and said, "What are you giving
this horse?" When he read the ingredients from the bag, he told me to keep
it up, and I should also give it to my other app, who had recently gone through
colic surgery; saying it would be good for his hind gut.
Today, you would never believe my horse had either low heels or poor quality hooves.
My farrier has several of his clients using this product now, and both of my apps
have great feet, shiny coats, and have "Broken out in Appaloosa".

Dear Sue and
I bought a young brood mare
last year with a foal at foot- she had a very badly damaged eye and was blind
in it, but worse was her overall general condition- very thin, feet completely
untouched- split, broken and flaking badly- and took a very long time to get a
I had the eye removed in
January and put her on Formula4 Feet as it seemed to be the best I
could find to help her recovery but also with a view of getting her in foal reasonably
early in the season.
The improvement in her condition
was noticeable, after just a month, bearing in mind the time of year. I got her
in foal first time in early April and her feet are now not cracking or splitting-
I still have a way to go but the Formula4 Feet has turned her around;
her coat came properly, her feet are growing and not breaking up on the hard ground
she now looks like a horse; the best bit is that the maintenance now is low but
I know that she is getting everything she needs without having to be pumped full
of this that and the other.

We're on our
2nd sack of Formula4 Feet and the horses adore it - I used to have
to mix the old supplement (product name
removed by Equi Life for legal reasons!) up
with allsorts to get them to eat it which was a pain when trying to feed a fussy
TB and a Section A pony who seems to put on weight on practically desert and a
nice view!!! (Especially didn't want to have to fed him anything extra!!).
Love your product! My horse's feet have never been normal until I used Formula4
Feet. I tried everything else to no avail. This stuff is phenomenal! I've told
everyone I know about it.
Whilst writing we would like to thank you for the advice you gave us regarding
one of our school horses Seamus. We have been feeding him Formula4
Feet for about 3 months now and the results have been excellent. His feet are
improving all the time and his general condition is much much better. The advice
we received was excellent.
With kind regards
Dear Equi Life,
I felt I had to email to let you hear the huge difference Formula4
Feet has made to my horse's condition. VANESSA
is my 30 y.o. mare. After a successful showjumping career she is now retired on
my father's farm. Two years ago she developed a severe abscess in her near fore
hoof. Several vets visited and treated her with different drugs etc to no avail.
I purchased some expensive remedies and poltices to treat her myself but unfortunately
the problem became rapidly worse.
Vanessa went down in the stable, unable to walk, My father and I sat with her
and hand fed her until eventually we arranged for the vet to put her to sleep.
Desperately I searched the web for help or an answer that I couldn't get fron
the vets. Then I found Formula4 Feet and started feeding it to Vanessa
One year on. Vanessa is sound, has gained condition and is cantering round the
field like a 4 yo; I havent had a vets bill in months!
Thank you for your wonderful product it is amazing.
I have received
several favorable responses from our clients regarding both the presentation and
the results regarding Formula4 Feet.
I am happy to continue to provide it for our horse-owing clients with foundered
horses and ponies.

I am not comfortable sending
pictures, but I would love to tell you what wonderful effects Formula4
Feet has had on my horses.
I have 2 Arab-Pony mares
- Mausi is 35 years old and Fala, her daughter, is 13. Fala foundered (in all
four hooves) a few years ago and we have been battling the damage
in the hooves since then and also tried to determine the true underlying cause
of her founder (basic digestion and metabolism problems). I tried several holistic
and homeopathic remedies with some success, but her recovery was not progressing
as rapidly as we hoped. A friend in Germany introduced me to Formula4
Feet. She had experienced great success with that product. I immediately called
the UK and was given a contact in the US for Formula4 Feet. Fala has
been receiving the supplement now for about 6 months. She is walking out into
the pasture (only slightly lame), she no longer spends most of her day laying
down, her coat is shiny and beautiful. Fala has regained full interest in life
and today actually bucked with joy!!! I hope to ride her again
or at least
to see her running and bucking in the pasture.
also had a great impact on my older horse. I stopped riding Mausi about 2.5 years
ago because her age appeared to catch up with her very rapidly. She lost a lot
of weight and became stiff and lame. Mausi also started receiving Formula4
Feet 6 months ago (she loves it!). I havent started riding her again and
dont expect to (though it could happen!), but she has gained a significant
amount of weight, her coat is shiny and she is barely lame. I also noticed that
she did not grow as much hair this winter. Last year, her winter coat was extremely
long and the hair was very fine (shedding was also a problem). This winter her
coat never grew as long and she has already shed most of it. She has that sparkle
back in her eyes and is working on a new trick to teach us.
The hoof quality has impressively
improved for both horses. Fala had to wear specialty shoes for the last year,
but has now been switched back to regular shoes by her farrier. Mausis joints
and hooves have also improved significantly, allowing her to slowly recover her
original hoof shape that was impacted by her leg and joint problems.
Thank you Formula4
Tobiesen, Mausi & Fala, Double Oak, Texas
Our pony has
had severe Laminitis but since using Formula4 Feet, alongside a strict
management routine, he has been amazing and now bouncing around all over the place.
We are very pleased with the way our pony is now, he is completely different.
I will certainly be keeping him on Formula4 Feet.
Mrs Jenny Pike,
Dear Equi Life,
I simply had to put pen to paper to let you know, for the past year or just over,
I've been feeding my Gelderlander "Brandy" (who's in his twenties) Formula4
Feet instead of ******** ******* (product
name removed by Equi Life for legal reasons!).
frankly, I can't believe how much better his feet are - what a difference. Even
my farrier is amazed at how much hoof there is to trim and also that his hoof
is a lot stronger. I can also see his coat has a lot more shine since he started
on the Formula4
Feet. There is never any left in his feed bowl, please continue to make this supplement
- we cannot manage without it. Hopefully this information is of interest to you.
Mrs J. Johnson,
I asked our
newly opened tack shop, Petwise at Treforest, to get some Formula4
Feet for me and I gave him a copy of one of your advertisements. He now has four
satisfied customers using it, all of whom have reported good things about the
product. I have been using it for both my cobs since early in September this year
(2005). I was previously using a well known broad spectrum mineral and vitamin
supplement but gave it away because I was so keen to try Formula4 Feet.
I am very pleased to be able to report that even in this short time I am glad
I didnt wait any longer.
One of my cobs suffers with poor quality horn and although it may be a little
soon (5 weeks) to report a marked improvement I am confident it will happen with
the help of Formula4 Feet. The other horse has a rapidly disappearing
mane and tail - not in keeping with his flashy personality - and people were remarking
on his foal like tail. Today however one of my friends commented on how good both
their coats were looking and how soft and shiney the mane and tail of my black
cob was - what there is of it!. Nothing to do with good grooming as I am afraid
of pulling out even more hair. I had been quietly thinking to myself that I could
see an improvement but this just confirmed it.
I am looking forward next summer hoping to see a proper tail from top to bottom
and not just a few wispy strands swaying in the breeze.
So thank you for this very good quality supplement.

I have just
ordered my second tub of Formula4 Feet. At long last here is a product
that really works and I have tried loads of others! My Icelandic horse has Cushings
Disease and suffers from recurring bouts of laminitis. His hoof quality has already
improved after only one tub of this supplement and the farrier is now finding
it a lot easier to put his shoes on.
Many, many thanks
to tell you that I am over the moon about the improvement Formula4
Feet had made to my 15 years old Shetland mare. She has not been able to get in
foal and has not looked well for the last 3 years. She suffered from laminitis
every time she came into season, to the point that I was about to put her down.
I then received your sample pack of Formula4 Feet and read the information
about the product.
I started her
on Formula4 Feet and the change was absolutely incredible. After only
four weeks on the product she got in foal and is absolutely blooming. The ridges
on her feet don't seem so noticeable and the new horn growth looks really healthy.
She runs out on Dartmoor and I trim her feet myself so I can really appreciate
the difference; AND she is sound now, trotting around and feeling really well.
I was in so much despair but Formula4 Feet has given me a glimmer of
hope for what is my best brood mare having previously won the Championship at
Devon County Show on three occasions."
is doing very well indeed on Formula4 Feet. This is her first summer,
since she developed laminits 2 years ago, that we have enjoyed hacks out most
days, no raised clenches or movement of shoes. The new growth looks healthy and
strong, not full of rings and ridges as it was previously".
"Horses look tremendous
on Formula4 Feet. The horses couldn't have looked better over the winter
time. Their coats are shiny, they are all TB and live out all year long. This
winter there was no scurf in their coats as there had been in previous years.
Everybody has always commented on how wonderful my horse's look and now they look
The hoof quality
is a lot better than before. This year we have been much more free of splits,
even though we have the extreme weather of rural Perthshire. It is easy to make
a starving horse look good, as in other adverts, but when you already have horses
that look fab, to make them look even better I did not think was possible.
All the horses
are unshod and at one point the farrier did say that he might have to put shoes
on a couple; but since using Formula4 Feet that has not been needed.
I am thrilled to bits with this product!"
"I have been using Formula4
Feet for 12 months now and I am happy with it and would
not change. The farrier comments on how good his feet are and everybody comments
on how shiny his coat is and how well he looks. I feel safe using this product
as it comes from Equi Life and is used at the Laminitis Clinic. He is 15.3h and
all he has all year round is chaff and Formula4
Feet to eat and he looks fabulous. I recommend this
product to others and I am chuffed to bits with it."
Feet is an Excellent product and does what it says
it will. Stick with it and you can really see the results. The horn growth has
been incredible and such good quality. The horses Love it!"
"We have a Welsh Section A which suffers from Cushings and is therefore susceptible
to laminitis. A number of potions have been 'tested' over the last couple of years.
Some have had a greater effect than others but non have made an appreciable difference
- with one exception. Formula4
Feet had an obvious and positive effect on Scottie.
The outward physical differences were significantly healthier and stronger hooves.
Over and above this, his coat shone, he looked much happier (and fitter!) plus
his appetite returned. He was the original, perky pony we had known for many years".
Mike and Gillian Lithgow, Farringdon.
pleased with Formula4
Feet. My horse
has never had good feet but his feet are better than they ever have been, the
feet are really hard and it has also improved the horn growth rate. My farrier,
who suggested I tried it in the first place, said his feet are the best he has
seen them. I would recommend this product to anyone. It was developed by the people
who know what my horse needs".
I must write to tell you how pleased I am with Formula4 Feet. My Connemara
had White Line Disease and very poor horn quality, with weak heels, for several
years (since I've owned him). I have tried several products on the market which
were supposed to help with his problem; with no improvement.
One well known
product he refused to eat, whatever I tried.
I then tried
him with Formula4 Feet. I must say that I made no other changes to
his stable or work routine. Also, I have always used the same very good farrier.
We noticed an improvement, even after just one bucket of Formula4 Feet,
but waited to see if this improvement persisted. After using Formula4
Feet for almost a year, my farrier and I are delighted. Now the horn quality is
much better, much stronger heels and the white line disease all but gone. An incredible
difference in his feet.
from Arthur, (the pony), myself and a very happy farrier, Mark Evans.
"I would just like
to say thank you for the excellent feeding advice that you gave for my "dull"
driving pony. The Speedi-Beet, High Fibre Cubes, grass nuts and of course Formula4
Feet gave him that spark that was missing; thank you. Also to say that he is very
happy and comfortable in the grazing muzzle".
"I am sending you a few lines about Formula4
Feet. I have
been a farrier for 38 years and I have always been somewhat sceptical about hoof
supplements. However, some horses obviously suffer with poor feet.
After discussions with some of my customers, and mainly due to the endorsement
by The Laminitis Clinic, I was tempted to try Formula4
Feet. The results
have been very impressive, with definite improvements in horn quality. As a result
I now have several horses using the product. Some customers are on their fifth
bucket and the results are plain to see."
John Mee (Derbyshire)
"Hi, I have been using
your product for almost 10 weeks now. I have noticed a change in my horse and
was wondering if your product could be responsible as I have not changed any other
element of his diet or management. He suffers from Eczema behind both front knees
and over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that this has cleared up to the
point where he no longer has sore looking scabs and crusts. I did clip off his
legs last night just to check there were no nasties underneath, all his feathers
and both knees were clean as a whistle. I originally bought the product because
the wet, muddy weather had taken a toll on his feet so I thought I 'd give them
a boost. His hooves are fine now and I seem to have the added benefit of resolving
his eczema. Is this possible or should I look for an alternative explanation as
I would like to avoid the problem recurring. Many Thanks",

from Robert Eustace;
The condition you describe used to be called mallenders in the old texts, sallenders
were a similar condition at the front of the hocks, usually affecting cobs or
heavy horses. Formula4 Feet contains over 65 micronutrients which provide
the essentials for the entire epidermis, all of which, skin, horn and hair are
made from the same types of tissue. You cannot supplement the hoof horn without
supplementing the rest of the skin and hair. I'm sure Formula4 Feet
is responsible for your horse's improvement.
thank you for developing Formula4
Feet. I used to use ********
******* (product name removed by Equi
Life for legal reasons!) but
it made my 8 y.o. Irish TB x so excitable that I had to stop using it. I used
to work him at dressage, combined training and as a hunter, but within a day of
starting him on that supplement he became a different horse. He could not concentrate,
was on a high all the time and became an absolute pest to be about. Thankfully,
your Formula4 Feet, has kept him in tip top form without making him
Mrs D.W. Bushton.
you Equi Life, my horse has grown half an inch of better quality new horn within
a few weeks of starting him on Formula4 Feet. I have had horses all
my life, worked in the industry and Formula4 Feet is the only supplement
or balancer I have ever used which has resulted in a visible difference to my
horse's feet. I might as well have thrown my money into the street for all the
good all the other products I have used have made."
Mrs V. W. Sheffield.

Feet the improvement
is noticeable, it is highly palatable and I think it is brilliant!"
