    Leroy loves his Buckeye

    By on

    My mule is 29 years old and needed a feed easy for him to eat Buckeye fit the bill. He licks his feeder clean. I am happy and so is my mule.

    Good, but pellets were too big

    By on

    I had one younger horse and one older horse who both chocked (who have never chocked before) on this feed. I believe it’s because the pellets were very large. They chocked when it was dry and when I soaked it.

    Picky eater approves!

    By on

    My older gelding has been hard to feed. This met all of my requirements, and he LOVES it. He is feeling so much better. He is putting weight back on and has a healthy energy back, not the chaotic energy the sugary senior foods were giving him. I also love that chewy has this. None of my local feed stores has buckeye, so I can have this shipped with my dogs stuff!

    My horse loves it, but it’s never in stock

    By on

    Chewy, you’re my favorite place for all things pets, but if you’re going to supply horse feed you need to understand that switching feed for horses is a much more involved process than it is for dogs and cats. Switching horses can take weeks in some cases, and we don’t have the option of just feeding something else when our regular feed is out of stock. Abrupt changes can cause life threatening colic! I just switched my senior horse over to this, and now it’s been out of stock for weeks. Thankfully I bought 2 bags and I’m slowly switching him back to his previous grain because I can’t take a chance on when you’ll have this again.

    Not my horse approved...

    By on

    I'm disappointed...so is my gelding who turned his nose right up at this when he sniffed the bag! Usually he is eagerly standing over me and a newly opened bag of feed...not this time, he turned and walked away! Even when mixed into his Sentinel Senior feed he shifts through it and this pale colored pellet remains behind uneaten. I have to agree with Sudan that it doesn't smell appetizing at all.

    Stormy LOVES this feed!

    By on

    I am feeding 4 pounds a day to my 9 year old gelding. He loves this feed and can't wait for me to put it in his pan. It smells good and is very palatable. His overall condition has improved and his skin/coat are shiny. Ordering on Chewy is so convenient and the shipping is free.

    THANK YOU CHEWY

    By on

    I have always loved Buckeye feeds. My 30 year old horse loves this food and it puts weight on like a dream. But my local dealer went out of business and the closest was over 3hrs away. I’m so happy I can finally buy this again! Thank you Chewy!!!!
