    This Saved My Old Horse's Life

    By PonyGirl on Apr 22, 2021

    I have an old, old horse that gets super skinny and loses his hair every spring. He has no back teeth and lives on beet pulp. I just didn't think he was going to make it another year and somebody posted on a social network about this feed. I thought, like the hundreds of other things I had tried from I have an old, old horse that gets super skinny and loses his hair every spring. He has no back teeth and lives on beet pulp. I just didn't think he was going to make it another year and somebody posted on a social network about this feed. I thought, like the hundreds of other things I had tried from fat builders, to oils that this was going to be another waste of money. But within 3 weeks, my horse gained weight and is chubby now! He looks like he did fifteen years ago. He has been on it for about a year and a half and with just two scoops a day (one in the morning and one at night) along with a bucket of water-soaked beet pulp each time, he has come through winter and spring like a ten-year-old.And it does not make him hot at all. I am absolutely in love with this feed! If you have an old, skinny horse, please give this a try. … more

    Good, but pellets were too big

    By Jane on Apr 23, 2020

    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.

    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.

    My senior horse loves it

    By on

    I started my senior horse on this feed and he loves it. He has put on weight and I love that Chewy delivers it to my door.

    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!

    Hard to find??? Chewy's got it!!!

    By on

    Its hard for me to find Buckeye products. Safe N'Easy is a great senior feed as I prefer low NSC for my horse. Economical and fast shipping.

    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.

    Love this extruded feed

    By on

    So glad this is now available on Chewy! My horse loves this product, and I'm thrilled it's 100% extruded - he's getting all of his nutrients with this highly digestible feed!

    My senior hard keeper likes it

    By on

    Although it’s too soon to tell if it will put on the weight he needs, he definitely likes the taste. My only concern now is why it’s been out of stock for almost 2 weeks.

    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.
