That is great, but different things in combination work differently on different horses, and again-none of them are any good if they won't eat it. Also-there ARE many, it can get very confusing. It can be helpful to know what is working for other people. There is nothing wrong with asking. It is also a form of research, and not a "flavor of the month" selection. Your statement insinuates that the rest of us are idiots.
My goodness sakies, you are just far too sensitve and take words far too literal and personal
Yes different things work in combination and work differently. I was not referring to that, I was referring to the fact that some companies use fillers and the product (glucosamine/chondroitin/msm for example) can possibly have something else in it and therefore not 100% pure.
That can, in turn, cause the product to not work as efficiently. It won't harm the horse at all, but it will take MORE product to reach success. More product usage means more $$$ for the company that sold it - get it?
Those three things in combo work very well and it takes very little to make them work well if the product is guranteed by its company to be pure and not have fillers in it. I would rather pay more up front and feed less because over the long haul it saves money and my horse.
Lots of folks on the equine world-wide web love and swear by SmartPak. Without a doubt, I can see it's advantages when a person is in a boarding situation.
I am not in a boarding situation and since SmartPak can't tell me WHO they buy their products from, I don't trust the particular things I need to be pure. I have not one but two insulin resistant horses and I need to be 110% sure of what goes into their little persons.
So my point to what I said, that you managed to take offense to, was just because everyone else is feeding something and appears to be happy with it, do the research to be sure one is getting what one is paying for.
