My horse had no problem eating it. But it did not work for her severe allergy.

I was skeptical at first. I wanted to try it on my 27 year old arab mare. She is the best beginner lesson pony on the planet but she has heaves. I was feeding her everything soaked and what a pain in the middle of a Maine winter. She was unhappy too. I had to keep her separate. All she wanted was some real hay and a buddy. SOOOO I decided to try SmartBreathe. After 1 month she wasn't coughing at the beginning of the lesson, after the second month I started feeding her real hay. She has been on it 3 months now. Every once in a while she will cough but it is seldom. Tootsie is SO happy to be out with the other horses and eating hay again. She even gets to come in the barn on really bad weather nights. Long story short- I'm impressed!!!!

Seems to be working
I had my horse on this for about a month because he was having nasal discharge and seemed to be breathing hard. It seemed to clear up and get better while using SmartBreathe. Then I stopped and his breathing again seemed a bit labored but the discharge had stopped. After two weeks of being on it again he seems to be breathing much better during normal work so I'll keep him on this. FYI, he's also on Cosequin ASU so he's getting 10,000 mg of MSM rather than just 5,000 with the SmartBreathe.

Did not work
I bought this to try on my 2 horses that developed heaves, I tried it for 30 days and there was no improvement at all so i decided not to buy more as its expensive for 2 horses. I mixed it in with there lb of soaked alfalfa pellets and they ate it right up. Its good to try as it does work for some horses, just not mine

Allergies to pasture grass
My Billy started his allergies to pasture grass after he had pigeon fever. His jaw and neck would swell and he would start wheezing terribly. I had the vet check him 2 times and they suggested I bring him in during the year when the pastures are full of wet grass. Or I could run blood panels and put him on medication. I have tried everything - including MSM. He would be out in the pasture for 5 hours and blew up. I read the reviews to Smart breath and not one review had the same issue as mine, but I though what the heck try it! It took about 2 weeks before it really worked! He stayed out for 4 days, no swelling at all! I would recommend this to horse with all types of allergies!!
My Boy is happy to be outside with his girlfriend!

My horse would not touch
Would love to know if it works, but my horse would not touch the stuff. Tried making treats with it in, but since you need so much at one time, I don't think it helped.
