Founders of W. F. Young, Wilbur and Mary Ida, on Claude and Jake
W.F. Young, Inc. makers of Absorbine, UltraShield, ShowSheen and more, is a family owned American business and always has been. We have owned and cared for horses throughout the company's history. We wanted to share some of the Absorbine horses, so here we are “horsing around” over the years.

Your faithful blog/social administrator Sean on beloved family Percheron Danny
Danny was my horse growing up. My mother Jamie used him for all sorts of tasks on her land and he had a huge heart. Danny was a forgiving mount for us kids to learn on, but he REALLY loved to pull! We miss you Danny.
Jaime McKinley, great great granddaughter and current V.P. Of New Product Development, ready for a trail ride.
Jaime (spelled differently than her aunt’s name) is in charge of developing innovative horse products here at Absorbine. Her latest project was to extend the ShowSheen line and update it with hair health ingredients to promote your horse’s beauty from the inside-out. Jaime and Jamie (J squared) work to combine our many years of experience with modern technology and practices.
UPDATE: January 1st 2021, Jaime assumes the role of President of W.F. Young, Inc.! Jaime has spent her career driving these products at WFY from beginning to end. It's only natural that she leads Absorbine®, The Horse World's Most Trusted Name® We could not be prouder of Jaime and her Team!
One of our favorite horses is named 8N. He stills works fine.
