    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT FOR 1/BAD FOR OTHER This is a great product for my very mellow, lazy mare. She picks up her usually slow walk and her energy is definitely improved but level. It also enriches her red roan coat color.However, it is DIASTROUS for my daughter's already highstrung mare. Her eyes literally roll around like marbles in her skull after a week on Red Cell!So good for some horses, not so good for horses with hot dispositions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra boost My WB can be a bit lazy once the weather warms up here in the south. Red Cell gives him the boost he needs to leave the rails in the cups during the summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I'm on my second jug and I love it and my horse loves it (of course I mix it with a ground carrot). I feel that it have helped with my horse's cough. I'm happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! My 31yo Arab has been getting Red Cell for the past 20+ years, and my 2 younger Arabs have gotten it since they came to me. All 3 have been incredibly healthy--not even a cold for the past 10 years!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tasty? Hmmm I have used red cell frequently, the only downside to the product is picky eaters may not like it. I currently have an ex-racehorse in the barn who I know has been on it before & he doesn't like it much. Molasses work better for mixing supplements & I usually feed more vivtamins than are contained in the red cell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use it every winter I feed this to my older horses every winter to give them an extra boost. They all eat it. Blood tests before and after show that it helps.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from maintaining Bought this on recommention for older jumper. Was a hot summer and thought it would give him a boost. Haven't really noticed much difference after about 30 days, but figure it can't hurt. I'm giving it orally, so I do know he's getting it all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Stuff! I have fed Red Cell for a year now to our competition horses. Just a little bit makes such a difference in their energy level, and really makes them look filled out and healthy. Most horses eat it right up, but I have one that's a little picky about Red Cell, but she does okay with it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I put both of my horses on this product(one was eating dirt, so I figured he was lacking something). He is not eating dirt anymore. They both eat it with no problems. Would recommend this product to others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended Needed an iron supplement for my older mare. This is the only product she would eat! Works great and she is less lethargic now. Good product
    Date published: 2010-04-15
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use When Necessary... My mare I've had for 9 months who just seemed to have a lethargic-type personality recently had blood work come back with a low red blood cell count (anemia).I've had her blood work done when I first got her but since she's always acted lethargic I expect the low red blood cell count was overlooked the first time.Red Cell was recommended by my vet...I tried just mixing it in my horse's feed but she knocks all the feed out of her bucket trying to get rid of the red cell, I will have to just syringe it in her mouth or maybe mix with applesauce.Smells gross like cheap children's chewable vitamins.Before: A poor creature that really wanted to be with people but was just too tired and lethargic.Now: A Horse who is just as sweet as ever with the energy to back it up. Did NOT make her hot, just made her feel better! We're not struggling to get her to just walk any more, she's happy to trot around in the arena and still be child-safe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Red Cell Works! I have used this product in past years and was pleased with it. I started using it again as my horses just did not seem to have much energy. The "get up and go" was missing.Red cell *works* is all I need to say. You will notice a difference.It does have a strong but pleasant smell to it. All 3 of my horses accept it just fine including my mare that believes anything new is poison!You only feed an ounce or 2 although I give my Percheron 3 ounces so the value is very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy fix for anemia Last winter when my horse was extra lethargic we tested him for Cushings, worms and ulcers but found that his only issue was that he was a bit anemic. Red Cell did the trick! It's much less expensive than treatments for all of the other things we thought that he could have and gives him 'good work ethic' energy with a rather than 'hot spooky' energy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW What a difference Started giving this to our percheron who was normally lethargic, in a little over a week I had a different horse. It does not make him 'hot' or pushy or unmannerly in any way he is just much more alert and wanting to do things. I am not sure about the palatability, it has been over a week and he still smells his feed every morning and then gives me "THE LOOK" but then proceeds to eat it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Horse Loves Red Cell I purchased Red Cell when my horse had a borderline low red blood cell count. He is also on antibiotics which can be hard to get him to eat willingly. Not only do I feel good that he is getting the extra supplements he needs, but he loves the yucca flavored syrup and now even eats his medicine without leaving any behind in the bucket. To me, it is worth purchasing just for that plus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure Fire Winner Our calf horse had seemed to have lost that "spark". He seemed a little lethargic, and the twinkle in his eye was gone. After a friends suggestion we put him on this. All I can say is wow! It pepped him right back to his old self. My boy is back. I'd reccomend this to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from energy in a bottle I have an older horse who I still actively compete. He does great, but in the summer months he gets tired a bit faster in our intense Florida heat. We compete less, but I also supplement his diet with RED CELL to help keep his energy up for the 4 months or so of worst heat. Come the cooler months he is his usual frisky self and doesn't need any additional supplements!I just mix it right into his feed as recommended and it works great! He eats it right up. I think the first couple times he was a bit wary of the new smell in his food, but once he got used to the smell and taste I haven't had a problem since.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked very well! I started my clydeX driving mare on Red Cell in the hopes it would help her be able to handle the very grueling sport of Combined Driving. It not only helped her live up to her full potential, it helped in our everyday training, she is able to focus better as well as accomplish more. I would reccomend this product to anyone with an older horse or a horse that needs that extra push to be able to handle competition with ease! I plan to keep my horse on Red Cell as long as she is able to compete. Thank you Smart Pak for sending me this great product.
