    Hi Everyone,

    I'm looking for a complete Daily Supplement to feed my horses. Does anyone have any advice for me on what works best for their horses?

    Thanks so much!

    I use a Ration Balancer for my hard keeper (Seminole Equalizer) and for my pony I use Smartpak EZ Keeper Grass. I like the Smarpak because I don't have to think at all about it and she looks good. There are a lot of suppliments out there. It's best to figure out if your horse likes pellets, granules or meal and then pick one based on what you think your horse will eat. At my feed store the manager has little snack bags and you can buy a few ounces of a suppliment and try it. Also, Smartpak will let you have a trial pak or two, I believe. I've even seen some TSC stores have samples, but not very often. It's good to try some out because if your horse won't eat it, then it's just a big waste of $.

    It is best to have blood work done to see if the horse needs any supplementation and what is needed. Fat soluble vitamins can build up in the fat if the horse doesn't need to utilize them.
