Great for mini’s!

I feed this to my 5 year old American Miniature mare who is an extremely easy keeper (like most mini’s), I love that it gives her everything she needs without too many extra calories, I also love that this has electrolytes in the feed already since my mini doesn’t like to drink her water.

Love this product!

Love it, wish it was easier to find..

Great Stuff!!

My VERY PICKY 8yr old loves this. We mix it in with regular Senior for breakfast and dinner and he also gets a soaked alfalfa cube lunch... and he gobbles it all up. We recently had him scoped during another procedure and he has ZERO ulcers!! He’s been on stall rest for 3 months, is a show horse and loves, and now misses, his pasture and friends. Thank you for keeping my guys tummy healthy.

Awesome!

This stuff smells really nice and I love that it has no soy. My picky mare eats this with no problem and I feel confident she’s getting better nutrition than what I was previously feeding. She never did well with the soy balancers and she hated them anyway. With Gold balancer, I just put it in her bucket and she eats it right up. Excited to see the outward results in the next few months.

Great option for my easy keeper

I swapped my mare to this feed when it first came out because I was looking for a soy-free balancer. She's an easy keeper, and in the past had some sensitivities to soy. I like that this has the gastric buffer built in to it because previously I was adding a supplement for that, and now I just buy one product which is nice. I feed this plus free choice forage and a small amount of the TC Flax and she looks amazing
