Natural Psyllium Fiber (monthly purge)
Natural Psyllium Fiber
Some horse people say free choice, good quality hay is all that's needed to avoid sand colic, but this product also offers a bit of emotional support. I feel better for having it in my horses' nutritional plan. It's sort of like having insurance.

On our barns random fecal check 5 horses were found to have sand. The vet recommended we do a spot check ourselves to have a baseline. Well, of course my horse had about a tablespoon of sand come out of a handful sample of manure, how much more is still inside him? I couldnt believe it. I knew he was a dirt eater and is on treatment for ulcers due to frequent "tummy aches" and felt the sand could also be contributing, so as a group we purchased and treated all the 5 horses. To my relief
one week later my horse was totally "sand free" on
recheck. I will definitely keep checking him
throughout the year and use this again. Taste gets
a 4, because two horses were hesitant to eat it the first couple days, but were finishing it up by day 7.

It is best to buy this product in the 10lb. It is most economical. I have no incidence of colic since I started feeding this monthly.

Great! Horses actually eat it.
Have a horse that requires one cup of this a day. He would leave the powder version at the bottom his feeder. He eats the pellets right up can't pick them out of his grain.

Psyllium seems to be working...
All kidding aside, Psyllium seems to be working...I thought our older horse was getting skinnier because she was getting "older" Jumped on line only to read articles that an older horse does NOT mean a skinny horse and more that once psyllium was coming up in the conversations....so I ordered the SmartPaks of Psyllium along with her Weight Builder and OMG! I swear she even feels better..........go SmartPak!.....and you just can't beat their customer service people!
