Supplement Question Please

Has anyone ever used Glanzen 3 supplement? I am considering using it for my OTTB gelding. I have done a bit of reading and I like what I have learned. But, I would prefer to hear from people who have experienced results.Any info is appreciated. Thanks!

Glazen is ground flax seed with added B vitamins. Your costs including shipping will run about $1 for a 4 oz portion. If you buy a bag of flax seed at the feed store and grind it yourself, that 4 oz portion costs $.16. Add some vitamins and it's still less than $.25. Flax is a great product and I feed a couple 100#s a year but I'm not going to pay for someone else to grind it and put it in a bucket for me.

Thanks! Should I grind the flax daily or can I do it weekly? Also, do you recommend a daily vitamin supplement that is cost effective?

You can also buy ground flax seed at Walmart-I use it to make horse cookies sometimes and give it to them that way.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

I feed ADM's Grostrong. It's a loose grandular product that you can either topdress or offer free choice. If you're already feeding a sizable amount of a fortified feed, you probably don't need to add any more vitamins.

To answer the other question, the flax seed is going to have additional protein and vitamins and minerals that the oils does not have.

What are you hoping to achieve with the supplement?

I don't know much about it except a horse at the barn was on it, and it came in Smart Paks, it was super annoying to rip the Smart Pak in half to feed half in the morning and half at night, the PM portion was difficult to open because the SPs only have a pull tab on one end, and I always had to stab it open with a scissor and get it all over.

That is my only experience with it. I fed a flax-based supplement years ago (Missing Link?) and it went rancid and was nasty. I did not see any benefits from it at all.
