I purchased my (then) 6 year old Paint mare a little over a year ago. From the time I brought her home, we noticed that she had loose stool, almost cow pie-like. At first we just ignored it - it didn't seem to bother her, it wasn't getting all over her, and honestly I didn't know what to do about it.
I found out that SmartPak made a digestive aid that was supposed to specifically help this problem, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm on my second bucket now, and my mare is doing great! She loves the taste, and it smells good, too! Best of all, those cow pies are almost non-existent, and her stool is much firmer than it ever was. Great product, SmarkPak =)

Good so far?
My mini has no problem eating this up with the rest of her supplements.
I guess it is just good to keep feeding just to be on the safer side of things.
My mini hasn't had any gut problems so far * Knock on wood*

support difficult times
I am giving that on a regular basis to my older horses and I gave it to my mare for few months just to support a change in her diet. Works well, an she loves it!

No more bloating
My Arab mare is now 16. I dont know if it was age, breed, or the change in climate, but she was showing more and more signs of gas colic. Her belly would swell up and she wouldn't eat. Sometimes she went down, sometimes she just looked miserable. My vet recommended a probiotic. Being a fan of Smart Pack I took advantage of the free shipping and ordered this. The results were noticeable within a weeks time. She is still a bit gassy, but at least it is coming out rather than staying in and making her uncomfortable. ~My discipline is not available below. We DRIVE~

I got this for my 31 year old mare who had an issue a couple of months ago with loose stools which is very unusual for her. My vet wasn't sure if it was an encysted strongal problem or mild colic so he treated her for both. He had me use a yeast powder for digestion and a power pack dewormer. This cleared everything up in a matter of days. I have since used the SmartDigest product just to be safe and she loves the pellets and eats everything right up. She is incredibly healthy and trots or canters out to pasture every day.

30 yrs old and still kickin'
We have a thirty year old gelding who has been on an IR based suppliment for a long time and doing great, so when he got diarrea I looked into your digestion products to find smart digest and it has done great reducing the diarrea. For a 30 yrs old horse he looks and acts like he's 20. Thank you for the many suppliments to help keep our horses on the right track.
