    BioFlax 20 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 152.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Shiny & Licks it Up After sweet itch this summer, my geldings tail was dry and top half rubbed off to about 4 inch hairs. Now, his winter coat is super shiny, farrier commented on hooves, and tail is re growing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He likes it We have been using this for two months now and our horse eats it no problem and he is not throwing his shoes as much as he used to I think it is because he has a stronger hoof.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time will Tell My horse has been on this a little under a month, so I haven't had much time to see results. I can say however, that she willingly ate it without so much as a sniff in her bucket.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horse likes it! Have only been using for one month so too soon tell. But, my horse likes it and smartpaks are certainly the easiest way I've ever used to give supplements!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this about a month ago to help my mare as she transitions from shod to barefoot. Havent used it long enough to notice much other than her coat is very glossy but the new hoof she has does seem healthy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft coat I bought this for my grey mare. She has a noticeable shine and softness to her coat. She is kind if picky and eats it in her food.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has what you need My OTTB has consistently difficult to manage hooves and this is my hoof supplement of choice. It has what she needs (Biotin) without risk of over-supplementation. There is never a problem with her eating it and I like that it is in a flax base.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective for hoof integrity It takes awhile for any hoof product to really work but this one came through with flying colors. We had difficult and changeable footing conditions; wet, dry, icy, crunchy...and the horses were throwing shoe after shoe. This has completely stopped, even though the weather and footing conditions are the same.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems to work well I started feeding BioFlax 20 about 1 year ago. I also started using a new farrier at the same time and shortly thereafter started also using Keratex hoof hardener. My horse's feet have def improved as far as keeping shoes/crumbling/cracking but it's hard to say what of the 3 has made the difference. I am sure all have been helping greatly as a whole. I asked my farrier if she could tell a difference in his feet and she said that the while the hoof wall does not seem thicker (which is what you would think would happen with a hoof supplement), his hoof horn quality has improved since she first started shoeing him. Out of all the hoof supplements though, Bioflax seemed to give the best bang for your buck as far as the amount of biotin. Cheap enough to feed that there's no guilt with a "might work might not" feeding reason. I certainly won't stop feeding it because something of all the changes is working and this is the cheapest change :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your farrier won't believe it! No other hoof supplement is as good as this one. I started my young horse on this three years ago and have managed to keep him barefoot ever since b/c he grows strong hoof and a lot of it. He is a jumper and is ridden six days a week on all terrain of footing.My project horse had horrible feet that needed special shoes and kept loosing them. After six months of this product, he has not lost a shoe since (2 years) and has beautiful strong feet.This product blew my farrier's mind! I think this supplement is amazing and is the best hoof supplement especially for the price. I chose it b/c of the quality of ingredients and the flax base which is so healthy for our horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My horses eat this without any fuss and I believe it has helped a lot for their hooves not to chip off(barefoot). They don't seem to be as itchy as before. I just started using this in January so I'm excited to see their coats in the spring after they shed out due to the Omega3 ingredients. I had one horse (dark bay) dapple last year because of the SmartOmega3.
    Date published: 2013-02-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product My horses ate this without issue. I noticed a difference in their coats even in the middle of winter. I would continue to use, but I am switching to a complete product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stronger feet for my mare! I initially bought Bioflax because I know TBs are notorious for having thin hoof walls, and my mare and I love trail riding. After 3-4 months of using this, I honestly haven't noticed a difference in my mare's feet, but my farrier says her feet are stronger and healthier. She's the hoof expert, so I trust her!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shiny Coat All Year I have had Shah on this for a long time now and it's a great product at a GREAT price! The thing I am most impressed with is the fact that it does indeed prevent hoof cracking. Shah has always had great hooves but sometimes in the summer they will crack a little as his feet grow - I have not noticed any more small cracks from the dryness since he has been on BioFlax 20. I also use this in conjunction with Focus Senior which also contains flax. Overall, great product for any budget with results!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This was recommended by a friend, and I've been very happy with it. I use it for all of my horses who receive a grain ration. It is very palatable and easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a cheaper option I had my horses on Farrier's Formula Double Strength for a while. I wanted to cut back pennies so I decided to look around. I switched to Smart Hoof and it unfortunately did not work for my horse. I thought about going back to Farrier's Formula but wanted to give it another shot, so I found this. It works (at least for my horses) as well as regular farrier's formula and I have noticed no difference from the double strength. When I got my 3 year old her feet were awful, and we were not even sure if she would stay sound. I put her on this right away and almost a year later she looks amazing, and doesn't even need hind shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great performer This is a high quality supplement. Within 3 months, hoof cracks & dryness have gone- coat condition much improved. Quite supportive for allergy coat conditions. Impressive sheen on the horse's coat. Hoof growth is improved. A good value for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I've had my OTTB on this for about 2 months now and I can notice a BIG difference in his coat condition. He is so shiny and you can finally start to see his dapples show. His feet are starting to look a bit better but that will take more time to see a difference. So far I am very happy with it as I always am with my HorseTech products!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Sleek, & Shiney BioFlax 20 has given two of my horses strong, fast-growing hooves, plus intensely colored, sleek and shiney coats. It doesn't happen overnight, but after about 2-3 months feeding of BioFlax 20, the effect is noticable. I sold one horse 6 months ago & saw her recently. She doesn't look as sleek, and I found she's not getting BioFlax 20 any longer. It's a great value, but I wish it came in pelleted form for ease of feeding.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the price This does not last the the 80 days it says. It lasted about 47. Therefore, the .47 a day is not true. I switched to HoofSOLID that local place carries. That is only .48 and it has a digestions supplement in it.The supplement itself was awesome, farrier noticed a huge difference. Just NOT worth the price. My picky eater ate it no problem

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Supplement I could definitely tell a difference in his skin and coat. Hoofs will take about year to determine. My horse shed off really nicely except for his midsection. The supplement was a good choice to shed off after spring and look amazing at competitions. I am definitely getting good compliments!

Farrier noticed a difference in hooves and everyone notices the soft, silky coats! Love it!! My horses all eat it fine, although a few of them weren't sure about it at first, now they lick their buckets clean.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I rescued a 5 year old chestnut mare with horrible feet. I liked the idea of putting her on a flax seed based supplement, especially for its anti-inflammatory properties. After 4 months, we have strong, healthy hooves. She kept her first set of shoes (ever) on for a solid 8 weeks and her hooves keep getting better. Her coat is beautiful, nice and shiny. I will keep her on BioFlax for as long as it's around. Thank you SmartPak for supplying it!
