I did call and talk to them. But I'm really only interested in those two. He's in great condition otherwise. He's been having a slight allergy problem since I've brought him south (two weeks) and we keep him barefoot with a mustang roll. Since the ground here is softer, I want to make sure that his hooves stay hard and don't become too wet. Neither was really a necessity per se, but if it makes him happier, I can't complain!
Now that he's boarded out (before now, he stayed at my parent's) the SmartPaks make me feel a bit better about supplements. He received Selenium there but doesn't need it here. We just put the toppers on ourselves. But since somebody else is doing it, this makes me feel better because they're labeled with his name and color (there are actually TWO Javas at our barn! One is a Paint grulla mare and mine, of course.) it makes me feel a bit better about feeding supplements.
If I like it enough, I may actually do a coat conditioner SmartPak and a no-fly SmartPak, too. But we'll see!
It's a bit on the expensive side, $50/month because of shipping, but that's okay.
