    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your # 1 Supplement for an older horse!!! This supplement made the biggest difference in the overall health, appearance and mood of my 23 year old gelding! He had not been on supplements previously and I was feeding a complete senior with rice bran but it just wasn't enough. This product was recommended by a friend but I was very skeptical, another way to increase the horse budget! Turned out this was the best money I have ever spent and we will be feeding this supplement from here on out! A MUST BUY!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all-around supplement! My TB gelding seems to be doing well with this supplement, and it's nice to just have one supplement that covers all of his needs. The price is great too. I'm pretty certain we will be continuing with this supplement unless something changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only supplement that works for my OTTB! I love Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine! I had tried several supplements prior and nothing would work for my Thoroughbred's arthritis... I was told about MLPwG by the woman I adopted him from and began using it... My baby boy has not had an issue since! I use the Smartpaks and they are great! I would highly recommend this product to everyone!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Supplement!!! Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine is the only supplement that works for my arthritic Thoroughbred... I began giving him this supplement 2 and a half years ago and have not seen any discomfort since! It is so nice to know that my baby has his comfort back and I love watching him run and play with his younger pasture mate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even my picky eater likes this supplement. I purchased this supplement to enhance the overall well-being of my elderly gelding. I was a little concerned about him eating it, as he can be picky, but I decided to give it a try based on other users' reviews. My picky senior does indeed eat it with no problem. He hasn't been on it long enough to say I've seen a difference, but it seems like a quality product for a reasonable price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something extra I starting using this on my stallion because he tends to be a bit of a hard keeper, fance pacing and all, it seems to have made some difference, he never got as skinny as he used to, but he wasn't always happy with the powder, and I still have to give him several pounds of grain. I prefer to feed more hay than grain, but it serves its purpose. I would reccomend it, at least to see if it helps, as every horse is different.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I noticed my young mare to have a stiffle problem a few years ago during the cold winter months. The vet said that she should out grow it and to have her trot for 15 mins or more daily. I have been giving her Missing Link Plus w/ Glucosamine for 2 yrs now. It has been extremely cold this year and I have not noticed any stiffle problems at all. I haven't been able to work my mare the last couple of months and she still shows no signs of stiffness or soreness. I believe that this product has helped my mare with her stiffle problem while she was maturing and I will continue to give it to her. It took awhile for her to get over it, but I believe it did indeed help.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing Link is It!!! The best money you could ever spend supplementing your horse! I saw first hand what this supplement can do (coat, disposition, energy) and ordered some for my own horse. I can't imagine not feeding this!!!!! We will not go without.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter supplement! I bought this for a 04 SE Arabian stallion, no major health issues, just wanted to make sure he stayed sound going into hard training (endurance) and wanted to improve his coat quality, as a breeding stallion he had been difficult to keep weight on over the summer months.After just a few weeks he is showing a smooth shiny coat and excellent recovery time after exercise.I recommend this to anyone looking for a general health supplement!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it for years I have been feeding Missing Link to both my horse and dog for years. It has kept their coats shiny and their skin healthy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Product I used this over the winter for my 3 horses. 2 are over 12 years and the third is a 8 yr old ottb who looks to have some arthritis in his hocks. They all ate it great and looked healthy and comfortable. They did not work though. I think this is a good product for horses who don't need much joint support, but may need more vit/minerals than their grain gives. I am using a different supplement for the summer while they are in work, but will go back to this in the winter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW... It's only been 3 weeks and I can tell you this, This works. I have noticed improved hair coat and vitality. I was leary about adding suppliments, now I'm a believer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to Feed I've only had Mira on this product for a month and am using it for Maintenance/Prevention purposes (she had a major injury a couple of years ago) so haven't noticed too much change health-wise. However, the big thing is that Mira will eat this. She will lick her feed bucket clean. I have never had her be enthusiastic about a supplement, especially a non-pellet type.I accidentally put it in our other horse's feed one night and he licked his bucket clean, too, and he is harder to feed a supplement to than Mira! So this definitely rates with me for palatability.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trying new product I purchased this product for a neglected 2-1/2 year old colt that came into the rescue. He has several joint issues resulting from his severe malnutrition during his growing years so I felt this product would provide the vitamins as well as the joint support he requires. We have just begun using this product and he accepts it in his feed with no issues. Will let you know how he's doing after a couple of months on it to give it a chance to work.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far I bought this for my navicular horse. I can't tell a big change, but a little one. I have only used it about a week, so I think I should notice a big differnce in about a month. He doesn't really like the taste of it but I just add a little bit of Molasse with it and he is good.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Value! I have a confession: I ordered this for my dog. Java is a large German Shepherd who receives Omegas and Glucosamine as part of his daily feedings. After pricing the canine formulas and coming up with high costs, I thought I'd fall back on what I used to feed my horse. The results are just as I had hoped! Bright, shiny coat, the joint support he requires, and the ease of SmartPak, of course!!I only wish Missing Link included MSM..... 4 Blue Ribbons!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever I have an Arab that is allergic to fly, giving him the itchies and skin/tail problems. The missing link supplement really helps to keep his coat and tail itchy free.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Product I have been using Missing link for about 3 months now and am very pleased with it. My horse is a very picky eater, but she loves this. And the added benefit of the individual packages that I don't have to put in the refrigerator, and then leave at home! I keep the whole box at the stables, which means Sarah gets her missing link everyday. Love the convenience! And I love the fact that all of the packaging is recyclable. My mare is 33 but nobody believes me. She looks great. Thanks!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing link Plus w/ Glucosamine I really like this product. I have only been using it a short time and already notice a better sheen and health to my horses coat (which previously was patchy and dull). The only thing is that the product needs to be in the refrigerated once opened so for me I have to remember to bring it along to the barn to put in my horses grain!! Thats the only thing. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend. Look at the ingredients and choose for yourself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Only Supplement That Works For My Thoroughbred I LOVE the Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine! I have a 17 year old, off the track Thoroughbred and this seems to be the only supplement that works for him... I had tried numerous other supplements in the past and was fed up with the fact that he was still in pain... I tried the Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine and noticed improvement immediately! Now my Thoroughbred runs and carries-on like he is 2 years old again! I would recommend this supplement to anyone and everyone... If you too have tried many other supplements in the past and have not seen any improvement, give the Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine a try and hopefully you too will have immediate improvement...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have all three of my horses on Missing Link. I have used this product for years. My horses tolerate the product well and the results are great. I have a 21 yo Throughbred still going strong, hasn't had his hocks injected in 5 years. I tried other glucosimine products but my older horse did not digest well. I have had no such problem with the missing link!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love it! This is the best supplement I've ever used. Not only do I love it, my horses love it! All my friends ask what I give to make their coats shiny and eyes bright! It's very palatable and the results are fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm very impressed My 9 year old mare has only been taking Missing Link Plus with Glucosamine for 3 weeks, and it is the ONLY supplement that has completely removed a slight stiffness in one front leg that we thought was here to stay! Now she moves fluidly and with a springy step and she loves the taste! It’s wonderful when a product actually lives up to recommendations
