BioLargo, Inc. announced yesterday that, via their wholly owned subsidiary Odor-No-More, Inc., they have joined forces with the prestigious Kentucky Horseshoeing School (KHS) to develop and test preventative products that establish the highest “Standard of Care” for the equine industry. Focusing primarily on the foot of the animal, the teams will work together to address major concerns in hoof health.
Founded in 1978, the Kentucky Horseshoeing School has continually focused on primary and continuing education, drawing upon the best of traditional practices as well as the newest research to become the premiere farrier education center in North America. On January 4, 2010, KHS opened the doors to their new campus near Lexington, Kentucky.
In 2010, Odor-No-More was awarded two Editor’s Choice Awards, including a “Product of the Year” award, by the Horse Journal. Odor-No-More are sold by BioLargo’s wholly owned subsidiary, Odor-No-More, Inc. (www.OdorNoMore.com).
Mr. Joe Provenzano, Odor-No-More, Inc. President, stated, “The Kentucky Horseshoeing School produces some of the best farriers in the world. The technical and scientific education delivered is exceptional and we look forward to working with the staff and the students.”
Mr. Mitch Taylor, Kentucky Horseshoeing School, Director, stated, “We understand the Odor-No-More products and the BioLargo technology. BioLargo technology has a major role to play in protecting animals and the feet of an animal are especially critical for survival. At the school, we teach sound practices based on cutting edge science. That is exactly what the BioLargo technology offers… science based solutions that can easily be integrated into daily management routines, to make a real difference in the way we manage hoof health issues, safely and effectively.”
Mr. Taylor stays actively involved in all aspects of the farrier profession. He has recognition throughout the farrier industry as a top clinician and educator.
Additionally, Mr. Taylor conducts many clinics for the international farrier and veterinary community. He also volunteers extensively with the American Farriers Association, where he has served on the Board of Directors and as Education Committee Chairman. He has also served on the American Farriers Association Editorial Review Board for many years.
Mr. Taylor has hosted and instructed the “Darley Flying Start” Program as well. This is an international management-training program for potential thoroughbred industry leaders. With this program he has taught several aspects of anatomy of the leg and foot, practical foot care and shoeing, corrective farriery, and shoeing the problem horse.
