Do you feed them to your horse daily with their feed?

What do you give them?

What is a must for them to have daily?

I do Vita Flex Accel once per day, but I just started giving it this past weekend, so I can't give you a testimonial yet.

We do fiberpsyll, too, since it's very sandy where we live.

I think the types of supplements you'll need to provide will depend on the soil and hay in your area, and what deficiences there are.

I give my horse a vitamin supoplement once a day everyday with his grain. I use equis vitamins and I've seen horses on horse guard too and they both work great! I also like the smart packs too, but I am down to one horse so it isnt a huge deal to buy a thing of vitamins.

Here is a link to the smart pack website:

This is what the horse guard is:

You can't buy the smart packs in the store, but the cool thing is is they know when you are going to run out and automatically ship you more.
Horse guard and equis vitamins you can buy in feed stores.

I give this to my gelding daily in a smartpak. Dark as Knight is the only one not in the Smartpack because he needs to come off of it before we show.
