One of my favorite parts of the SmartPak Blog are the Success Stories, submitted by horse owners who’ve had so much success using SmartPak supplements that they just had to share!
Here are a few of my favorite SmartPak Success Stories from the SmartPak Blog:
- Sophie & Fig
Owners: Sophie Leleu
“I fell in love with Fig the very first time I saw him at the Berkley track in California. I was looking for a horse to replace my retired Irish Sport Horse, and Fig had nice conformation, a wonderful walk and the cutest face ever. I bought him on the spot. Over the years, I’ve become more and more convinced that he’s my perfect match. He’s athletic, brave, scopey and careful, with a very strong, opinionated personality that always keeps me laughing. It hasn’t always been smooth sailing but we’ve accomplished so much together: we event to the Preliminary level, and we just started doing jumper shows, and he’s doing quite well. As a typical OTTB, Fig is fairly thin skinned and has had skin issues on and off for years. I decided to try SmartShine Ultra to see if it would help with his dry, flaky skin and dull coat. These days, his coat is super soft and shiny. Since starting the SmartShine Ultra, I also noticed that his nicks and cuts aren’t taking forever to heal like they used to. His skin is still sensitive, but I no longer have to cover him with lotions and sprays and painstakingly care for each little scrape. Thanks, SmartPak!”
- Robin & Cady’s Goldkeeper
Name: Cady’s Goldkeeper (“Keeper”)
Breed: Connemara/Thoroughbred cross
Owners: Robin Ridgway
“When I found Keeper, her feet were shelly and broken, had to be held together with acrylic, and she lost shoes on a weekly basis. My farrier suggested that I put her on SmartHoof Pellets to complement his efforts, and I’m thrilled to say that she has made an incredible turnaround! Her feet are now growing out strong and solid, and she’s keeping her shoes on through the entire shoeing cycle. Thanks to the combination of an excellent farrier and SmartHoof Pellets, I am looking forward to many years of partnership with Keeper and a lot less headache and expense regarding her feet.”
- Kellie & Beamer
Gender: John (aka gelding)
Discipline: All Around
Owners: Kellie Shields
Beamer’s baby picture (3 days old)
“I purchased my beautiful sorrel show mule, Call Me the Fireman, aka Beamer, in February of 2010. We are on our 3rd show season together and have already won many Championships and All Around Performance Titles in English, Western, and Halter classes. Beamer is an amazing guy. People say he looks like a pretty Quarter Horse with long ears! I’ve competed against horses and mules with him, and he stands out in every show pen.
Most of all, Beamer is my friend. He’s a very curious creature that eats his ropes, unties himself, chews up blankets, picks up his feed tub and carries it around, etc. I love him with all my heart, and he loves me back. I chose SmartPak because Beamer needs the best care to keep him healthy and sound, and I’ve always loved SmartPak’s products and terrific customer service. Mules live longer that horses, and I want his big body to hold up under the strain of hauling and competing. I understand the importance of joint, hoof, and digestive care, and that’s why I chose SmartCombo Ultra Pellets. It’s a great value and easy to feed (he’s picky). Plus, the skin and coat support gives him a show-ready gloss. I’m also amazed at how much better he’s doing with SmartBug-Off! He has a terrible predisposition to fly allergies (really common in mules) and has been covered in welts and bites in previous years, but so far this year his bites are very minimal and he has no hair loss. Thank you, SmartPak!”
Oh my gosh, I just love that last one of Beamer–what a cutie!!!
