Sea Kelp – The Miracle Mineralizer
For centuries people all over the world have harvested sea kelp for food. The Chinese, Irish, British, Icelanders, Canadians, Japanese, American Indians, Hawaiians, Koreans, Russians, Eskimos, and South Africans are just a few of the peoples who have traditionally eaten kelp. It has also been commonly used as a soil fertilizer and an animal feed.
Provides Organic Minerals
Without doubt, kelp is one of the most nutrient dense foods that exists. As it grows, sea kelp converts the inorganic minerals in sea water into organic mineral salts that are combined with amino acids to form naturally chelated minerals. While the quality of lab made mineral supplements vary wildly, the minerals in kelp are always fully bound.
Yeast Culture – One of Nature's Best Vitamin Foods
Yeasts are distributed widely on plants (leaves, flowers, fruits), in soil, in and on insects and animals, and in fresh water. Thus, for millions of years, yeasts, one of nature's best vitamin foods, have enriched the natural diet of horses as well as other animals. For the past 40 years or so, as man realized the importance of this food, dried or mostly "spent" brewer's yeast was fed to horses and other domestic animals with good success. But now, the feeding of yeast culture has taken us beyond the realm of "good success" to the realm of the "incredible." Live enzymes in Hoof & Coat Formula nutritional yeast culture (saccharomyces cerevisae) are retained by a special process which stabilizes the yeast without destroying its "live" properties.
Sea Salt – For Natural Electrolytes
The sea salt used in Hoof & Coat Formula is obtained by the simple process of concentrating sea water under the sun. It contains all of the oceans original trace elements. Up to 6% of Hoof & Coat Formula sea salt is composed of naturally occurring potassium, calcium, magnesium, and trace elements. It is of such a high grade that it can be dissolved in water to make true sea water that will support any type of marine life.
Biotin – For supporting Healthy Coat and Hooves
Biotin is a well-known supporting nutrient for healthy skin, coat, and hooves.
Springtime Hoof & Coat Formula – Common Sense Nutrition
Hoof & Coat Formula is a whole food formula made from natural, unrefined ingredients which are known to be especially rich in wide spectrum trace minerals. Use in place of ordinary mineral or electrolyte products which lack the wide spectrum nutrition of Hoof & Coat Formula.

Red Star Nutritional Yeast Culture
Springtime has used Red Star® brand nutritional yeast exclusively for over 20 years.
Springtime chooses to use nutritional yeast culture (saccharomyces cerevisiae) made by Red Star®, a complete protein and superfood containing 18 amino acids, B-complex vitamins, dietary fiber, as well as many other nutritional components and minerals. Red Star® Yeast, the largest manufacturerer of yeast products in North America, has over 50 year of extensive experience in the development and production of nutritional yeast.
What It Is
Red Star® nutritional yeast is an excellent source of protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Red Star® derives its primary grown nutritional yeast from pure strains of saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on mixtures of cane and beet molasses. Red Star's® special growth medium and unique drying process are the secrets to the exceptional performance and flavor of Red Star® nutritional yeast. This process retains live food factors, a unique and valuable quality.
Red Star® nutritional yeast is grown specifically for its nutritive value. In addition to protein, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, it contains additional functional and beneficial components such as beta-1, 3 glucan, trehalose, mannan and glutathione. Studies have shown that these components have potential health benefits such as improved immune response, reduction of cholesterol, and anti-cancer properties.
Nutritional yeast is also known for its B-complex vitamins. The B-complex vitamins are essential to the wellness of body, mind, and spirit.
What It Is Not
Red Star® nutritional yeast is not made from byproducts of breweries, distilleries or paper mills. Red Star® nutritional yeast is not a genetically modified organism (GMO). Red Star® nutritional yeast contains no added sugars or preservatives.
Candida yeast infection (Candida Albicans) is a body yeast infection. Red Star®'s nutritional yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is not found to be a cause of yeast or candida infections.
Brewers yeast is an inexpensive but bitter byproduct of the brewing industry that has a good nutritional profile, but typically not nearly as high as Red Star® Nutritional Yeast which is grown for maximized food nutritional benefits.
Torula yeast (Pichia jadinii), is a by-product of the paper mill waste streams obtained by growing Pichia jadinii on wood sugars.
Dairy yeast, or whey yeast (Kluyveromyce marxianus), is obtained by growing Kluyveromyce marxianus using cheese whey or whey permeate.
Wine Yeast (Saccharomyces fermentati) is used in fermenting grapes into wine.
Strong and Healthy Hooves
My black Percheron, Barak, is four years old and in very good health. I have been feeding him Bug Off Garlic for some time with great results. Last time I purchased enough to qualify for a free gift. I selected the Hoof & Coat Formula. He has completed one small jar. When my farrier arrived to trim his hooves he immediately began asking me what I had done to make his feet so strong and healthy. Percherons are bred for strong legs and hooves so I was surprised that one small jar of Hoof & Coat Formula could make such a noticeable difference with very good hooves. I gave my farrier the empty jar and a catalog as he plans to recommend it to his other clients. Thank you Springtime, for improving the quality of life for all four-legged friends.

Handsome Sir G!
Sir G showing off his beautiful coat.
"…he recovered at a rapid pace…"
My 4 year old off the track Thoroughbred's registered name is 'Great Rezults' but I call him 'Sir G' or just plain 'G'. He was a throw away as he only raced 8 times in his young life and came in 1st just once. But his last two races this year in March and April, he came in 2nd! His ancestors are Man O' War, Native Dancer, and Unbridled is his Great Grandfather…his cousin is American Pharaoh! His knees are a little inflamed and can't handle the races anymore so his owner let him go. So for only $600, I have a beautiful 4 year old Thoroughbred with lots of life left in him and he's enjoying the 'retired' life!
I have been using your Hoof & Coat Formula on Sir G for a little over a week now. He was suffering from rain rot. I had used a product which killed the rain rot, but his hair hadn't grown back in. However, this past week after I started on Hoof & Coat Formula, I noticed his hair has completely filled back in!!! WOW, that was FAST!
And I'm pretty sure his 'delicate' hooves have strengthened as well. He has kept both of his shoes securely on the past 2 and 1/2 weeks (twice he's lost one prematurely). Today I noticed his hooves look really healthy, shiny, and strong and his hind hooves haven't started chipping away like they normally do after a couple of weeks. I can't wait until my farrier comes on October 12th to see how much Sir G's feet have improved!
I moved him from a much too wet environment that was causing him to be very tender footed and making him basically lame. He also obtained an abscess from that place as well. After moving Sir G to his now high and dry beautiful home, it took a month for him to recover. But I just have to say that this past week after starting him on the Hoof & Coat Formula, he recovered at a rapid pace from both the rain rot AND his soft, water damaged hooves.
Thank you, Springtime for a wonderful product!!! I will send you an update to let you know what my farrier thinks. I'm sure he will be very pleased!

Before Hoof & Coat Formula, Sunny’s hoof had many bad cracks.
After using Hoof & Coat Formula, her hoof shows dramatic healing.
Sunny and a few of her favorite friends.
"… I noticed the crack in Sunny's hoof was shrinking!"
My Quarter/Fox Trotter mare, Sunny, foundered about 3 years ago. I have fought with her feet constantly. Last year, the right front cracked, and I had lost my farrier. Her feet went without attention for almost 3 months as I located a farrier who had the expertise I wanted. In the meantime, I came across the Hoof & Coat Formula and began feeding it immediately.
A month later, I noticed the crack in Sunny's hoof was shrinking! Not only was it reconnecting from the top but from the bottom as well! I could hardly wait for the farrier to come again. When he did, he too was amazed at the structural difference in her hoof.
Sunny has now been on the Hoof & Coat Formula for approximately 7 months. At our last farrier appointment, my farrier declared her sound. In fact, he said that if he did not know she had foundered, he would be wondering if she had. He said her coffin bone was back within an acceptable range of rotation, and everything was tight again. Not only do they look better, but they are hard which is so great for white hooves (although muddy in the "after" photo, Sunny has white hooves). Hoof & Coat Formula is definitely a miracle worker. Both myself and my farrier give it full credit for my mare's feet health. Sunny will be on it for life.
