Purchase: I paid $134.00 plus tax for a 25 pound bucket from my vet. I was looking for a well rounded supplement to try and to try and consolidate all the other supplements I was feeding to save money. I researched their web site and checked to see how many days it would last me.
Likes: I thought it made their coats a little shinier.
Dislikes: What I didn't like was their false advertising, don't be fooled like I was, do your own math!. This is a VERY expensive product. Their 25# tub says you'll get 171 scoops. Well when you read the dosage on the bucket it says feed 1 to 2 scoops per day, or more depending on the horse's activity. Everything except a mini gets at least 1-2 scoops a day. Well, one scoop is 4oz, so that would be 8 oz a day. There is no way you'll get 171 scoops out of this tub unless you are feeding a fraction of the recommended dosage. When I ordered, I did do the math, 171 into the $134 to see how much a dosage was but I didn't break it down nor know how much a scoop held at the time. This is too expensive for me.
Quality: This is a granule product that is brown which I would think was molasses based. The horses didn't mind eating it.
Summary: I am thoroughly disappointed that they would advertise and misrepresent their recommended dosage of this product in a way that the horse owner would not realize that it is costing them double if not triple to give to a regular horse vs a mini. You would think their dosage would be advertised and based on a regular horse then add adjust amount for smaller horses. The product maybe the greatest thing since peanut butter but I can't afford to feed the recommended amount. I purchased based on their advertising, #25 bucket, 171 scoops for $134..not! I'm going back to SmartPak.
