A horse professional I work with is a strong advocate against feeding commercial grains due to GMOs and really just the crap fillers they use (ex soy hulls). I want to do what is best for my horses so I entertained her.
She recommended Equine Health & Performance Inc.
They sell different types of “supplements” to completement horses diets depending on their circumstances (type, work load, age, weight, health concerns, etc.). Their product would be fed with some combination of BP, grass pellets (timothy and/or orchard), rice bran, alfalfa pellet/cube diet and cut out TMR (Total Mixed Ration/ Commercial Grain).
They have virtualy no reviews/ comments online. They don’t really have an active website. They do have a facebook page. All their business is done over the phone.
She told me I would end up saving money using their products over smartpaks with commercial grain.
I just got my bill. One month of their products made my heart stop. Maybe once I cut the commercial grain out it will work out closer to the same but it certainly will not be a huge savings. The suggested products are not free either, not to mention they recommended one of my horses to be on a higher level ($110/month) of their product. Her grain and supplements have never cost $110/month.
Hoping someone has some experience and can tell me this really is the best thing I can do for my horses…
