I ordered mine late Friday night and recieved it today, very quick service :))
The Chia seeds look like they are very nice quality, they don't contain anything but the seeds and it came with a handy little scoop! :D Can't wait to try this on him tomorrow, my only question is do I wean him onto it or just start him on 2 scoops? I know your ment to wean them onto new feeds especially with such a sensitive horse, but its only a very small amount when he is at full dose.
Sorry for the delay in posting back to you , been a tad busy.
I would just feed him one scoop to start with and see how he goes on that. What size horse is he?

Hi would be replace biotin sunflower seeds msm and equalibium
Yes we would suggest you could cut them all out, but if unsure please seek vet advise as well. If you want you can introduce the chia while slowly cutting out the rest of those additives.

No drama's :). He is 16.2hh. I just went to give him a scoop and he wasn't interested in it (but he is a fussy old horse sometimes!) so I will have to wait until Monday to get some mollassis and see if he will eat it that way. :)*

Ok maybe try just putting the equine chia in with a handful of chaff. Thats how i feed all ours who dont need a huge bucket of hard feed. that way they eat every bit of it. Good luck.

hi ,I have read all the posts with interest as I started mine on chia a couple of weeks ago, I would like to know if Chia is gluten free,as I would recommend it to my daughter but she can only eat gluten free foods,
another small question[no pun intended], How much Chia do you recommend I feed my mini horses? I am feeding one scoop in their night feeds. I can't find any info on feeeding chia to minis,
thanks

hi, not sure why you havent seen any changes yet, as most people see changes from 10 days onwards. Its up to you if you want to cut out the energy gold. What size is your horse and what ratio are you feeding him/her?
Energy gold has the same benefits as the chia with the omega 3,6 @ 9. But equine chia has the extra benefits as well. By feeding the two together you will most likely be giving your horse too much energy (oil), and they will just be passing it all through. We would recommend cutting the energy gold out and see how you go in 2-3 weeks. All the best and please feel free to ask any other questions.

Sorry for the late reply. Yes our chia is all gluten free.
One scoop wont hurt the minis but we recommend feeding 1/2 a scoop.

I have a friend who also owns gypsy cobs who is about to start her 4 on this equi chia, she was raving on about the other day and Id never heard of it, and then I just happened to see this thread today! I take that as a sign as I should try some on my cobbie girl too. She already has a gorgeous coat, but it seems to do so much more than that so why not give it a go I say :D!!

Just wanted to say that I have bought the big tub of chia and haven't looked back. My *extremely* hard to put weight on 20 year old TB is getting 2 scoops a day and has never looked better!!! His dapples have come out, his coat is amazing, and he is holding weight so well. I am so very impressed. Thanks equinechia **) :D

Amazing product!
We have all our racehorses on it, more so the one with higher allergies. Improvements to coat are excellent! And his healthy-ness appears to be without falter :)

Well Beau has been on it now for nearly three weeks, and my farrier came out yesterday and was amazed how good he looked.

He has dapples, coat is shiney, but best of all, when having his feet done he usually leans and finds it hard to carry himself - but yesterday,totally different horse, lifted all legs, held himself beatifully.

This is a 24yrd old who is usually on cartrophine, cellery etc for joints.

So to say I am supper happy is without question. I have just started to give it to one of the dogs as well.

Hello:)
I started our clydie cross boy and welsh cob filly on chia about 2 weeks ago. I have just ordered a tub as they are nearly out of the first lot.

When I feed the horses I eat a bit as well :p

I am dearly hoping that the chia will stop our 2 from rubbing out their manes and tails. I have tried nearly everything so far with no relief.

Will keep you posted.......
