Peanut was my birthday gift when I turned two years old. In his youth, he was competitive in local shows, and now, almost 25 years later, he’s still ridden regularly by my younger students. Other than some minor joint issues, Peanut had always been healthy and a very easy keeper.
However, over the last two years he’d been losing weight, moving slower, and had developed some respiratory problems. After a checkup, the vet just said, “These things happen with age,” but that wasn’t good enough for my best friend. I’ve always been happy with SmartPak’s customer service, so I went online, filled out the questions on the Supplement Advisor and ordered the recommended supplements. At first I worried that my expectations might be too high, but after two weeks Peanut was no longer coughing, and his general body condition started to show improvement.
After four weeks, his movement was so much better we actually had to limit his turnout to prevent him from “overdoing” it! Peanut’s winter coat has grown in soft and glossy, and he looks darn good for an old man. I couldn’t be happier with the results of the supplements recommended by SmartPak. Thanks so much!
