Protein is second only to water as the most abundant component of the horse's body. Protein is made from chains of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks which make up over 75 % of your horses body. Twenty primary amino acids make up most proteins. It is the different combinations and number of amino acids in each chain which determines the resulting protein e.g. muscle, hooves, hormones, coat and tendons. Amino acids in proteins which make up your whole horse can be likened to letters of the alphabet, making words and then sentences. Amino acids make specific proteins which form different parts of your horse. Amino acids are termed either "essential" or "non-essential". Essential amino acids are "essential" not because they are more important to life than the others, but because the horse's body does not synthesise them, making it essential to include them in your horse's diet. All the essential amino acids needed to make a particular protein, need to be present in the digestive tract at the same time. If even one is missing or present in only small amounts the resulting protein will be deficient e.g. cracked hooves, muscle wastage, poor milk quality, dull coat and stunted growth to name a few. Feeding Quality Protein The challenge in feeding horses is to provide the best quality protein, this is determined by its amino acid profile not its crude protein level. Quality protein, with all 10 essential amino acids, allows circulating amino acids in the blood, which the horse's body can draw on to synthesise and repair all its bodily tissues and functions. Every chemical reaction that takes place in your horse's body depends on amino acids and the proteins that they build. The Hanley Formula is a unique blend of Equine Essential amino acids with no fillers or additives. It contains high levels of all 10 equine essential amino acids which are: Arginine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan and Valine, plus other non-essential amino acids.

The Hanley Formula is an easy to feed supplement which offers owners, breeders, trainers and riders from all equine fields a fully balanced protein source, rich in every essential amino acid.
