Event Level Horses Love EQ8 from Buckeye Nutrition

"We love Buckeye's EQ8! It keeps our upper level event horses in great condition. These guys are traditionally hard keepers, finicky eaters, and in a tough work load. They LOVE the EQ8, always cleaning up their breakfasts and they positively glow. Thanks Buckeye for a great product!"

- Megan Moore, KY

"I am so happy with the BUCKEYE EQ8 I feed my horse. Orion has been eating it for over a year and the change in him is remarkable."
