Likes: I've been using this product on my 2 horses since Sept 2007. My mare came down with EPM in Aug 2007. She was between a 3 and 4 on the Mayhew Scale of neurological deficits. I was looking for any product I could find that would help strengthen her immune system. Omega-3's were on the list. I was also looking for something to help my gelding with chronic hoof abscesses. It took a while to start seeing any results. If your horse has ever had an abscess that popped out at the cornet band, you know how slowly hooves grow. It took my boy about 10 months for the scars to grow out. Last summer I started noticing how shiny their coats were and how strong their hooves had become. My mare hasn't had shoes since the EPM and her hooves have become so strong that I see no reason to shoe her again. I even took her on a trail ride over some pretty rocky ground a few weekends ago with no problems. My gelding has white hooves and they are now at least as strong as my mare's hooves that are dark. I am now feeding them about 1/2 cup of Horseshine a day which is half of the recommended amount and they are still shiny and their hooves are strong. For anyone that is considering this product, realize that it takes a while to really notices any changes. I would give it a year before passing any judgment. Also, for the picky eater, introducing any supplement slowly is the way to go. Start out with a teaspoon and work your way up. My mare is a picky eater and that's what I have to do with her anytime I introduce anything new to her diet.
Quality: I have not had this product go bad or turn rancid even though I don't have a cool place to store it in the summer. Quality seems to be good.
Summary: I like this product and will continue to use it for my horses.
Usefulness Rating: 2.8 out of 5.
