Your Feeding Solution Is In The Bag...
The Barn Bag® Pleasure and Performance Horse Pelleted feed concentrate is designed to balance hay and/or pasture diets, eliminating the need for compounded feeds. Nutrients required for activity and performance are supplied in the correct amounts by the Barn Bag® without creating the nervousness and obesity problems associated with poor quality diets and over-supplementation. Give Barn Bag® for nutrients, and if necessary, whole oats for calories to “do work” and maintain body weight. Each vacuum packaged and foil sealed 11 lb. bag is a sixty day supply for an adult 1000 lb. horse engaged in average activity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this feed! I bought this feed a couple of years ago to make sure my gelding was getting the proper nutrients as I wasn't sure he was getting it from the feed at the barn where I board. He is a VERY picky eater and I had tried numerous other vitamin/mineral supplements that he simply would not eat. This he loves! He always gets compliments on how he looks and has a lovely healthy coat and long beautiful tail that I contribute to good nutrition - and of course, good grooming! I have recommended Barn Bag to many of my horse friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fixed a Selenium Deficiency Last year we bought a 10 year old minature donkey. This spring, she started losing her hair in patches. After blood test, we discovered her selenium level was low. Started her on Barn Bag and in about 3 weeks the hair is growing in and looking very shinny. She likes the taste too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great supplement I had to switch products for my colt and gave this one a try. He eats it readily, has kept a shine and a good weight and has plenty of energy. I have no plans of switching, again. This supplement is working perfectly for my situation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for fussy eaters. My thoroughbred mare was loosing weight rapidly. She is a very, very fussy eater and would rather not eat if it isn't to her liking. Due to the drought this year, the hay has been of poor quality and she wouldn't eat much. Worst yet, she doesn't like grain, so supplementing her is very, very difficult. Hooray for Barn Bag. After trying so many different supplements, I finally found something she would eat. 2 months later she is still liking it and putting on weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for fat ponies! Excellent way to get my full-figured Haflinger the nutrition she needs without having to feed so much grain. She eats anything - so I don't know if picky eaters will like it - but it looks appetizing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did Okay There wasn't anything wrong with this product and there was not a problem with her eating it, she is just a founder girl and things are not going her way.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from By the makers of Farrier's Formula I have had amazing success with Farrier's Formula. I mean, seriously amazing. It's transformed my mare's feet, coat, mane/tail, you name it. So, when she was already doing pretty well after about 6 months, I contacted Life Data Labs, and the originator of the product himself (Dr. Gravlee!) was kind enough to respond to my inquiries. He recommended that since my mare's foot condition was already taken care of, that I should switch to Barn Bag in order to give her more complete nutrition. Unfortunately, after several months on Barn Bag, I noticed a deterioration in her foot condition again, so I went back to Farrier's Formula (FF), and now, several months later, her feet are looking great again. So, I think that in my particular case, my mare (a TB) can't be off of the foot-specific nutrients in FF, and while Dr. Gravlee did say that FF and Barn Bag can be given together safely without overdosing on any particular ingredients (as there are several common ingredients to both products), I can't really afford to give both, especially since Barn Bag is more expensive than FF for the same amount, so I am just planning on leaving her on FF indefinitely, and am just trying to give her different types of hay to ensure she gets enough supplemental vitamins/minerals. Even so, I would still recommend Barn Bag to other owners whose horses do NOT have foot problems, however, as I honestly believe that anything made by Life Data Labs is high quality and backed up by rigorous testing, and their customer service is impeccable!! My picky mare also had no problem eating the Barn Bag or the Farrier's Formula.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
