    Alfalfa meal in a supplement?

    I have recently put my haflinger on smartpaks Smartflex ll Support. I couldn't help but notice that in the other ingredients says alfalfa meal. Is this harmful to use for my haflinger? I know I stay away from anything alfalfa with him as he's an air fern. Here's the link to the supplement-

    Also, here's the list of "other ingredients"
    Inactive Ingredients: Alfalfa Meal, Grape Pomace (Ground Grape Seed and Skin), Lignin Sulfonate, Vegetable Oil (cold pressed).

    Some of these things are part of the supplement or it adds bulk along with a binder so that you're not having to weigh out or measure miniscule amounts.

    Your feeding him a tiny bit to make the active ingredients more palatable. Lot of things,like Magnesium, have a bitter taste that horses don't care for.

    Not enough to matter.
