“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!”
