Smart Paks?
 
Ive had one of my horses on them, the one prone to colic (Poncho, my problem child) is on smart digest and he is also on one for his skin. Do ya'll use any for your horses. I'm putting Rikki on the SmartLytes, because he refuses to eat anything with electrolytes in it and he's being worked a lot and with the 80 and 90 degree weather here, I figured its time. I'm just curious about what any of you use...

I don't do endurance but my horse is on them mainly for hoof and salt in his diet.

i dont do endurance either but my horse gets smarthoof, cosequin asu, and smartgut from smartpak. I love them!

I just started the SmartLytes as well!

Acey is on SmartCombo II (for joint, hoof, coat, and gut) and SmartMare Harmony. While she has a good diet, I still think the supplements help her. We've had her on them for just over a year and love the improvements we've seen.

Mine's on a Smart Vite Performance Grass, Smart Digest Ultra, and Apple-a-day electrolytes. :wink:

looks like a decent electrolyte blend.
I dont use the smart paks as I didnt like the auto ship . Also I can get the products I need much cheaper in bulk at tractor supply.

Joe4d, you don't have to have it on autoship

I'd get the other electrolytes, but he won't eat the powder, it just falls to the bottom of his bucket, and when I mix it with water he won't eat at all. With the SmartLytes, they have pellets. And I'm thinking on putting him on SmartCombo as well.

Joe4d, oh sorry I guess on the actually smart packs you do have it on auto ship. If you order a bag or bucket then you don't (that's what I do)
