Exclamation This is what I was thinking about getting?

So my dad has a subcribion to Horse.com the place where I can buy a bunch of horse stuff. I'm getting paid soon and here is a list of what I am thinking about getting. From this list can anyone tell me whats really NOT needed and also, what I should put higher up on my list from what I've got.. please don't add anything as I can just get stuff from horse.com.:) BUT( if you know any good hoof supplements one of my horses needs some so please feel free to tell me what it is PLEASE) thanks and I appreciate the help:)))!!!!

-Horse Health 1.87% Ivermectin;7 for $14
-PetAg Mirra-Coat(for healthy skin)=5lbs for $17
OR Farman super 14(for above as well.)=3 lbs for $18
-Majesty's Flex Wafers( joint supporting ingredients inside wafers=$21
OR Select the Best MSM( joint function and flexibility.) =$8,, but do I have to inject this or feed it.. im not sure
Corta-Flex More Muscle Solution( promotes fast and effective muscle building in young growing horses and training horses) =$26
: I didn't know if I SHOULD get the above muscle one because is it like steriods for horses? Or could I use it lol?

That's a lot of supplements. It would be healthier, easier, and cheaper if you just got one "do it all" supplement instead of ones focusing on different things.

But the fly masks and fly sheet....that's a great deal!

What makes you think your horses need all those supplements? If they're being fed and cared for properly their skin, eyes, coat, and hooves should all be in good shape.

Ivermectin is a dewormer and it's not the only one you should buy, since it only addresses certain types of worms.

I don't use fly sheets, but that's a personal preference. Fly masks though, I consider essential.

Supplements should be fed for a specific purpose. A vet, farrier or trainer can recommend IF needed.

Why dump things into your horse if it's not necessary?

Well, I wanted to get joint supplements for my barrel horse because I don't want nothing to happen to him in a bad way and these say that they help prevent and keep healthy joints. I know nothing about supplements, just want a healthy horse.

And his hoofs are lacking something. I'm not sure but he has some kind of deficiency and I thought maybe they would help?

Can you clue me in on supplements lol? Im really new when it comes to them:)

^^ WTG!

I agree with the others .. watch feeding supplements "just because" .. Ask you farrier what he reccommends for your horse's feet.

A good quality feed should be enough unless you suspect an issue.

Okay I will do that:) I'm glad I got some opinions before I spent 180$ on something I don't want to use without a vet or farrier saying I should... Do you think giving him sweet feet helps anything? Or is that just to fatten them up? That's what my dad says

Sweet feed is not the feed for horses, in my opinion. They need protein and a balanced diet, not sugary sweet feed.

If his feet are bad, he may need a hoof supplement, or a vitamin, but the farrier will tell you that.

Joint supplements are for those horses who have arthritis, are stiff, or maybe have an old injury. I have heard of them being used in performance horses, but I believe it more common for them to have a balanced supplement, such as an electrolyte or performance supplement (more of an all around type). The MSM you pointed out is a feed through, I use it on my horse who has premature arthritis.

My take on supplements: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If your horse is normal and has no problems performing for you, then I wouldn't worry about supplementing him.
