Question Omega-Horseshine?

Hello, all.

I have been searching for something to start feeding my new mustang(when he comes home) to get rid of the dullness in his grey/white coat and make his skin, coat, mane and tail healthier.

I have been doing research and heard rave reviews about Omega-Horseshine!

It is said to:
Restore cracked, brittle hooves.
Promote a shiny, healthy coat, and smooth skin texture
Alleviate stiff, immobile joints
Soothe aching muscles and shorten recovery time
Strengthen the immune system
Eliminate sweet itch and bug bit sores


Another plus people seem to say it does is bring out pretty dapples in their horses' coats they didn't know they had.

It is also pretty well priced in most places. It sounds pretty awesome and the before and after pics look pretty convincing, but I want to know if any of you have ever tried it? What were your results?
Thanks!

Where are you from? How long have you had you horse? I know that there are many products out there and all they want is to sell you a product but sometimes you don't have to spend a lot to get what you want. Are you feeding grain? What type? Read the ingredients. I have a senoir feed that has Biotin (good for feet) and other vitamins to promote a healthy coat and skin. Look up feed on line and just compare. There are supplements out there but why spend more if you don't have to?

I also used it and saw no difference. Plus, I didn't like that you have to feed so much of it, like a cup a day.....I was constantly filling baggies.

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

Some people swear by it, some don't. I do - the product itself is mostly stabilized ground flax seed, but it also has psyllium (same stuff as in metamucil and SandClear) and other "stuff" in it.

We have a two year old colt that got in a really bad way - the more we fed him, the skinnier he got. He was a walking skeleton and covered with sores before the vet figured out he was unable to tolerate alfalfa - he wasn't allergic to it, but it was toxic to him. He also had a horrible habit of dumping his feed bucket and eating the feed off of the ground, and we have sandy clay soil. We tried setting his tub down inside a tire to make it hard for him to tip over. That worked - he couldn't tip over the bucket - so he resorted to pawing the feed out onto the ground and eating it that way.

We took him off the alfalfa, so now he gets soaked beet pulp and oats, with timothy hay pellets when we can get them. We started adding the Omega Horse Shine to all of our horses feed, and they have all blossomed! Colt has nearly doubled his weight and the sores are all gone. His coat has gone from dry and brittle to soft and luxurious. You can see a very well defined line in all our horses' hooves that shows when we first started using the product - even the farrier noticed. (He was suprised because he didn't think it had enough biotin in it to make any difference, but I guess with everything else it had in it, it was enough).

Our horses get 1/2 cup twice a day. It's plenty for the colt and the rest of the horses, but we give Dancer - my mare - and extra 1/4 cup because she's nursing and her filly, Rain, shares her feed bucket.

We really like the product, and the price is fairly reasonable.

I have never used that product, but I can suggest one that I absolutely love.

Cocosoya - I can't say anything horrible about this stuff. My TB gets a cup of it in his feed, twice a day, and his best buddy a 17 year old OTTB gets it in his as well and the two have very shiny coats.

All Summer long, I have recieved many, many compliments on how beautiful his coat is and I say THANK YOU to Cocosoya! I love this product. It is not only a big help for hair, but also is packed with high Omega's and Vits.

You can get it in an oil, or even from SmartPak in a powder.

I have herd very good things about cocosoya. My only question is how much does some thing like that cost? And how long does a tub(or what ever it is in) last???

I was goin to say the same thing. And black oil sunflower seeds are much better priced

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

start with a good vitamin/mineral supplement and go fromt here since balancing my horses nutrition they have amazing coats...

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I have used NutraFlax from horsetech.com with good results. Prices on their web site include shipping.

Since I have 8 horses to care for now, I have been using a "no-name" milled flax from my feed store. It seems to work just as well and is only $28 for a 50 lb bag. That said, I also feed a complete vit/min supplement that has added biotin, amino acids, and is high in Vitamin E, so I really don't need the extra goodies that Omega Horseshine has in it.
