I was thinking of getting some SmartPaks for my horse. I don’t feed him any grain only hay. Does he need to be fed grain with the supplements? Or can they just be fed by themselves?February 10, 2015 at 6:49 am
That would depend on a number of things. Some horses will eat them, some will not. Some supplements are in pellet form, some are powder. With my horses, I give them some well watered hay cubes, and mix in their supplements. This solution is working fine for me, but might not for you. I would suggest that you call Smartpak – their customer service people will do everything possible to help you find a method that works for you and your horses.

Thanks Joe. I ordered some and can’t wait till they get here. 🙂February 10, 2015 at 12:46 pm
You are welcome. I hope you get the same wonderful results as I have! My horse, rising 23, has improved so much he both looks and acts a decade younger than his actual age.

All three of my horses eat supplements straight up. They are all two supplements together (pelleted and powder). Then each one has a specific supplement (some pelleted and powder). They can’t wait for the supplements at evening. They will stand in their stalls with excellent hay and want the supplements first. Your horse may be picky about a supplement. Find the one that works. I find that you can’t disguise the supplement. They can easily pick around it and leave waste. So if he/she eats a supplement straight up, there is no need for filler.March 4, 2015 at 5:10 pm
ride and drive – my boy would pick out the pelleted supplements and throw them on the floor, hence the wet hay cubes. I have better things to do than crawl around picking up little pellets and trying to convince him they are edible.

Thanks for all the advice. My horse loves them! He just eats them plain. 🙂
