    SmartMetabo-Lean® Pellets is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 326.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! My mare has been on this product for two months and has never looked better. She has lost weight without losing condition and her cresty neck is getting softer. I am diligent about weighing her grass hay and making sure she is getting enough exercise. The difference is very noticeable. Thank you SmartPak

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helps! I was skeptical as to whether I would see a difference in my mare on this, as she has been on several other metabolic supplements, as well as levothyroxine, to try to get weight off and get her IR under control. After only a month on this, I can already see a difference in her! It's not cheap, but I'm glad to pay for something that works, and this supplement delivers!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Might be a great product but my mare won't eat it The first few times I gave it to her, she ate it. But after that, she refuses to touch it. The website says it is for picky eaters but I have a mare that won't touch it. It smells good!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works! After a little over one month on SmartMetabo-Lean Pellets, my obese IR horse lost over 50 lbs. Nothing in his diet needed to be changed since he was already on a forage and supplements that were low carb. He is just one of those horses with that thrifty genes. I'd like to see him loose more weight over the next few months.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great piece of the puzzle I have two geldings on this product now, and both LOVE the taste. One receives two scoops per day to manage insulin resistance. The other is a 15 y/o Morgan that I have had about a month. He came to me extremely obese with many fat deposits and sore feet, so my top priority for him is supporting healthy weight loss. Between diet adjustments (no more rich grass!), more exercise with the herd in my large dry lot, and support from this supplement, he has been steadily dropping weight. His odd fat deposits are regaining normal appearance and his body is feeling firmer and much less spongy. His crest is soft, and his movement is increasingly comfortable (downright impressive, really!). I think this product is a big boost to his nutritional support and I will continue to use it in combination with SmartVite Thrive for a balanced multi-vitamin.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Managing Glucose Intolerance I believe this product has helped me to control glucose intolerance in my Missouri Foxtrotters. I still pasture them early in the morning and have stopped soaking hay without inflammation flare ups.!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a Miracle Pill but a Piece of the Puzzle I've been using this on my chunky mare for 2mo now and yes, her cresty neck is softening but I'm not ready to give these pellets all the credit as we've made many changes all at once. She's in much better shape than she was and it's been part of her strict feed program so we'll continue it for now

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps. Not a cure for insulin resistance. However, my IR horses don't have all the fat pillows that some IR horses have, or even as many as they used to have. When combined with diet restrictions and exercise, Metabolean allows horses to have SOME time out on pasture, so they don't have to be confined to a stall or dry lot 24/7.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My pony won't eat them! I asked for a trial to see if my pony (who eats almost anything) would eat the MetaboLean pellets. I was told to add unsweetened apple sauce if she refused to eat them. My pony ate them for a few days then stopped liking them. I tried apple sauce, sweet grain, and alfalfa pellets but she still wouldn't eat them. Now I have all these extra supplements that I can't use. :( I'm sure they would have great effects if my pony ate them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product. I started using the smart metabolean about 7 weeks ago. There has been a huge difference in my mare both mentally and physically. She has lost some weight and her attitude is a lot nicer. In addition to her fat deposits she had awful smelling urine and all of those symptoms have cleared up. This product is definitely worth it for me.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not seem to help I have used multiple different metabolic supplements for my easy keeper over the years and was very excited to try this one. I love SmartPak brand supplements and have great luck, but this has been the exception. My pony lives mostly out, but we have a footed dry lot for her to live in when not wearing a muzzle. She has struggled with weight gain problems over the last few years and really struggled this winter. I was hoping that this supplement would keep the weight off or at least keep her the same, but it did neither. For awhile, it kept her shape the same which I was pleased with but now that the grass was coming up she seemed to be gaining again. I have since switched supplements and she has been on the new supplement for a week and has had drastic improvement. This may work on mild cases, but it did not work for my horse. She has been tested for IR and other like problems, and has been negative. She's just an appy pony who loves food!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works for us! I did my own experimentation on our draft cross - put him on for a month, took him off for a month, put him back on the supplement - did not change diet or exercise levels. Definitely improved the fat pads on his ribs as well as the crestiness of his neck. Our easy keeper wears a muzzle when turned out on our very lush pastures and is maintained on an excellent ration balancer with his supplements. He is less fat on the SmartMetabo-Lean Pellets!
