Smart Paks?

Ive had one of my horses on them, the one prone to colic (Poncho, my problem child) is on smart digest and he is also on one for his skin. Do ya'll use any for your horses. I'm putting Rikki on the SmartLytes, because he refuses to eat anything with electrolytes in it and he's being worked a lot and with the 80 and 90 degree weather here, I figured its time. I'm just curious about what any of you use...

I don't do endurance but my horse is on them mainly for hoof and salt in his diet.

Acey is on SmartCombo II (for joint, hoof, coat, and gut) and SmartMare Harmony. While she has a good diet, I still think the supplements help her. We've had her on them for just over a year and love the improvements we've seen.

looks like a decent electrolyte blend.
I dont use the smart paks as I didnt like the auto ship . Also I can get the products I need much cheaper in bulk at tractor supply.

I'd get the other electrolytes, but he won't eat the powder, it just falls to the bottom of his bucket, and when I mix it with water he won't eat at all. With the SmartLytes, they have pellets. And I'm thinking on putting him on SmartCombo as well.

Joe4d, oh sorry I guess on the actually smart packs you do have it on auto ship. If you order a bag or bucket then you don't (that's what I do)
