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 No Worries with Barn Bag! My horse is actually a large pony. He is in training so he needs the proper amount of nutrition. Barn Bag is the perfect solution for him. He gets it with whole oats. He thrives on this diet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with oats I add this vitamin/mineral supplement to oats for my horses once daily grain meal. I no longer feed the highly concentrated, high sugar content grains. They are healthy and love the more natural oats diet with my Smart Pak supplements.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it Barn Bag has worked out great for my barrel horse. He easily maintains a nice healthy weight. One sign that he is getting the nutrients that he needs is his coat. His coat has a beautiful healthy luster! He will be staying on this diet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Answer For My I.R Horse Owning an I.R horse is like doing a jigsaw puzzle. You have to make all the pieces fit. Life Data Barn Bag is a piece to my horses puzzle that definitely fits. I have cut out his grain completely. He has lost the weight he needed to, has excellent muscle tone, and the stamina to go all day. Barn Bag is a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's not to love? The bags only weigh 11 lbs. instead of 50 making it easy to store and the bags are vacuum sealed for freshness; it's a perfect vitamin/mineral supplement to complement my hay and my horses all love it! They get no grain, just Barn Bag, hay and pasture and their coats are all shiny and hooves are in excellent condition. I have one 29 year old retired horse as well as several other active dressage horses on it and they are all doing very well.I should also mention I order about 50 lbs. per month from SmartPak and they ship free because one of my horses gets other supplements in SmartPaks.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This supplement is the only one I've been able to find especially made for horses on a diet of oats, hay, and pasture only. My mare is in the best condition ever. I board so my feed options are limited unless I provide my own grain which unfortunately I can't afford to do so supplementation is the only way to go. I searched long and hard for the right one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Easy Keepers! Some of my Dressage horses and Driving Ponies get very little (handfuls) of concentrated feed. I worry that the broodmares, stallions, and young horses are getting nutritionally cheated, especially when their hay quality goes down at the end of the hay year. I use Barn Bag to make sure my horses and ponies are getting the correct vitamins and minerals.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product My thouroughbred mare had always been an easy keeper, but went through a rough winter about two years ago. She really improved when I began using a high quality general supplement. Barn Bag is excellent because there is little waste with the pellets. The product is also fresh and enthusiastically received by my horse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect vitamin/mineral supplement I have been using Barn Bag for all the horses in my barn for a couple of years now. They all love it and get no other grain and they look terrific! It is very complete and well balanced for my horses diet of pasture and local hay.I love it because the vacuum sealed bags weigh only 11 lbs. so they're easy for me to lift and, since SmarPak has such a wonderful shipping program, I am able to order as many as I want and pay a flat shipping rate. No more lugging around 50 lb. bags of feed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from too early switched from patriot 12% to oats and barnbag. too early to tell, but i can tell my mare likes the taste and is licking her tub clean, something she didn't always do with the patriot. (the main reason i'm trying this is i wasn't feeding the quantity of patriot necessary to include the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product If you want to get away from concentrated feeds, this is a wonderful product. Unlike other ration balancers you don't need to feed five pounds of it. Just add oats for extra calories. It smells great and the horses love it. It is fantastic for easy keepers because you know they're getting enough vitamins, etc. while not getting too much food. It also has no added sugar. I have used it for a couple of years now and couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect compliment to hay. I love the fact that this vitamin/mineral supplement is so complete yet you have to feed so little of it. I have grown tired of unloading 50 lb. bags of feed so I also love that the bags only weigh 11 lbs. and are so tightly sealed that they keep for a much longer period of time and don't take up a lot of storage space in the feed room. As SmartPak delivers it to my door I no longer have to waste gas on trips to the feed store. I have been giving this to only my riding horse but I am switching my boarders horses to it as well. It smells great and my horse LOVES it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tiny Bag Full of Nutrition The jury is still out on how well my horses will do on this product as we just started feeding it. It is certainly palatable and with the supplement of oats, thy have a nice tasty meal. I love the teenie, tiny 11 pound bag!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product This is a good product and our horses ate it without a problem. However, I have since switched our horses to Mega-Cell as it is cheaper in price yet still fulfills their vitamin/mineral needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great supplement I had been looking for a great supplement for my mare who is on stall rest. We couldn't feed her her regular grain ration and this has put my mind at rest as she is only 5 and still growing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! At last, a multivitamin that my picky easy keeper will eat! During the off-season, I do not feed any grain, and she only gets a minimal amount while competing. The Barn Bag ensures that she gets what she needs to race at her best. I have tried SO many supplements, and she cleans up this one every time! Great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fills the bill I feel like I am finally able to give my easy keepers the vitamins and minerals that the regular guys get.
