    Leg Up® Bug Defense Pellets is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped Keep the Bugs Away My mare is super sensitive to flies and this made her less attractive to the bugs. Love this product and the horses ate it willingly. Absolutely saw a difference almost immediately. I recommend this product. Plus, the price is affordable especially when you have multiple horses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually works! I didn’t really believe any of these products did anything except make the horse smell bad, but my mare has a terrible greenhead allergy and this supplement saved her. About 2 days into using she no longer had any welts or hives.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if it's making a difference My mare is a magnet for insects and she's been on this a while, not sure if it's making a difference or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I ordered this for two horses on my farm in Ocala that are being tormented by gnats, and while it's too soon to tell if it's helping with the bug problem, I will say they do gobble up every pellet. I hope it works. I like that this products is very affordable, so it was worth a shot to see if it helps keep the gnats away!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! For the past 5 summers I have been battling bugs. I've never tried a feedthrough supplement because I've always heard they don't work. Even earlier this spring when my sensitive chestnut TB mare wasn't on this and bugs were not nearly as bad as they are now, she would last maybe 1.5 hours outside before she was running. Ever since starting this supplement, she is staying outside much longer and is much happier. I notice the gnats are not nearly as bad as they normally are when riding! This supplement is keeping my horse, me and the barn workers MUCH happier!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bug supplement! I bought this 2 months ago for my very thin skinned, hive prone TB mare. She usually stands there stomping, swatting and pacing because of the bugs every night. Every morning she is usually covered in large welts. After being on this supplement for 2 months, she stands comfortably to eat and has no welts/hives. She seems content in the pasture and when I am working her. She will always be on this from now on during the summer! The pellets have a strong odor and she was a bit picky about eating them at first but now eats them just fine. If you have a picky eater I would suggest getting a sample or slowly putting the supplement in with your feed or mixing with a sweet feed/treat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I have a rescue donkey that you can't touch. I've been feeding this and it seems to be working. I like that it doesn't have alot of ingredients and is economical.
