I feed Nutrena Life Design Complete and use Daily Omega Plus, and I've gotten amazing results with it. It isn't just for a shiny coat... it has a LOT of great vitamins and minerals and is in a flaxseed base.

And there's another bonus... it actually makes your horse water-resistant. Whenever I hose my horse off, the water runs right off her and she dries in minutes. I don't even need to sweat scrape her. It's great for getting rid of sweat, too.

Daily Omegas Plus - Multi-Purpose Supplements from SmartPak Equine

Oh, and she's pastured about 75% of the day.

Wow that's shiny! I just balk at the large price tags on the omega horseshine... It does contain flax seed.

(And I've read bad things about rice bran, and I've read now that BOSS contains MORE omega 6 than omega 3..)

And omega three is more what I want.

Cloudsmystique- for one horse, how quickly would you go through your omega horseshine with just one horse?

Well, I don't use the Horseshine... I use the Daily Omega Plus. I use SmartPaks, but it says the 8.2lb bucket will last 28 days, the 16.3lb bucket will last 56 days, and the 32.6lb bucket will last 112 days. It's $1.25 a day for the two smaller buckets and $1.19 a day for the large bucket.

I was feeding my horse rice bran last year and he absolutely shimmered.
