|Grow 'N Win with PM supplement|
However, after all the issues with SmartPak, I choose to move my business over to Platinum Performance. Ellie is entering her third month on the Platinum Performance GI supplement, and so far I am happy with the switch. She still has colic surgery coverage, but the limit is now up to $10,000. The supplement itself it easy to feed, in a small pouch that is easy to store. Platinum Performance sent a little bucket for the supplements, but I found my old SmartPak drawer fits 28 pouches just perfectly. Ellie eats the flax based supplement without any problems, as she is such a glutton anyway. Other horses I have owned, Dreamy included, have refused to eat anything other than a pelleted supplement, but Ellie isn't picky at all.
To take it all a step further, I bought a one-year subscription to FeedXL when they were offering a half off deal back on Black Friday. Maybe it was overkill, but it was cheap enough and seemed like an interesting program. The only thing it came up with was low sodium, which is easily corrected with a free choice salt block. ;-)
|probably not worth full price, but decent enough piece of mind|
So far, I think Ellie is on a good feeding regiment for her age and workload. Of course, as she matures and things change, I will have to tweak it as needed. And let's hope I NEVER have to worry about colic surgery, but it is nice to have the coverage.
