I have been shopping around for a new multi-purpose supplement for my horse and I came across The Missing Link Ultimate Equine Hip & Joint... Anyone ever fed this stuff before? I found some good reviews on SmartPak, it sounds like people are happy with it. I like the joint health benefits obviously, but I was also surprised to see all of the ingredients for digestive support. I'm also a big fan of dried carrot and apple (good sources of pectin).
This is from the product description on the SmartPak website...
"The Missing Link targets the nutritional gap between what nature provides and what's available in commercial foods. Free of fillers, preservatives, and artificial colorings or flavorings. A natural dietary supplement made of whole food and food concentrates with Glucosamine. Helps to promote cartilage regeneration and mobile joint function. A good source of soluble and insoluble fiber as well as essential fatty acids (omega-3, 6 and 9). The essential fatty acids along with other nutrients in our supplement are important for absorption of fat soluble vitamins, and for intercellular health; therefore they help to promote a healthy digestive system, increase energy and strongly support the general immune system."
How could I go wrong? I ordered a 5lb bag of it (60 day supply), I guess I'll try it out and see how things go. The website says it has to be refrigerated for maximum results, but in my neck of the woods, it's down in the 50s-40s during the day, and 30s at night. Do you think it will be safe to leave it in an unheated feed room? I hope so because I board in a big barn and I think if my horse's supplement had to be kept in the observation room fridge, they might forget about it.
So. Any experience with this stuff?
