SmartPaks are pretty stinking awesome. Yeah, you can find supplements for less if you look hard enough – but you get out what you put in. I love the convenience, especially since I always have to pop in and rush around before school and sometimes I'm feeding really late at night. Also, if you ever have to have anyone else feed for you, it's incredibly relieving to know that your horse will get its supplements even if you're not there.

Lunar is on SmartFlex III, Mare Magic, SmartShine, and Grand Hoof. I love all of them, and they make a big difference for her. It can get a bit pricey, but like I said, you get out what you put in, and I want her performing and feeling her best! :)

I have smartpak joint supplements for my mare
They're so easy, and more cost efficient than going to tractor supply and buying it
My friend has smartpaks for her mare, she has multiple and it makes caring for her horse way easier.

Huey does this too. We start trotting, and he starts hacking. Dust makes it worse, and it's definitely worse when there's a lot of pollen in the air. He's stalled overnight, but turned out 9, 10 hours per day. My trainer said she's also seen this when a horse has had a respiratory infection in the past, but given that Huey occasionally breaks out in hives, I'm going to go with "it's allergies". He rips out a few honkin' huge coughs for the first couple of trotting trips around the ring, and everything settles down after that.

poor Shaggy sounds like he's dying when he first does it he hacks a couple times and then he's fine. Thats why thought i might try smart breathe just to make it a little easier on him. =)

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

How much work does Lunar do?

I was thinking of trying one of the SmartFlex levels.

I don't know what you are supplementing, but I'm surprised - usually they are priced very competitively.
A PENNY a day? Please explain what you feed your horse on Smartpak.
