EQ8 Transforms Horse Mateo Gut & Ulcer Issue

In 2013 I bought a six year old trakehner, Mateo, who had lived on the same property he was born at for his entire life. Then I came along, bought him and started eventing him. As you might have predicted, he developed ulcers. Once we discovered what was wrong, 90% of my brain power was spent worrying about my horse's stomach and gut. After a lot of trial and error and some serious maintenance, he was still showing some discomfort.

Thanks to an amazing barn manager and good friend, I was introduced to EQ8. A week on this feed and my horse was gaining needed weight and switched from ear pinning as his go to response, to perking up and resting his muzzle on my hip. Competition wise, we went from not even being able to complete a novice course without me getting dumped, to moving up to training level. Our debut horse trial of the season and at training, we won the dressage on a 26 and ended up finishing in third overall. I swear by EQ8 and am so thankful that I found that last piece of my horse's needed maintenance to allow him to feel and perform at his best. A big thanks to BUCKEYE® from Mateo and me!

Tucker gains weight with EQ8 Gut Health & No More Colic

I have a 10 year old quarter horse gelding that has always been hard to keep weight on. He is picky and doesn’t give much thought to food. I somewhat recently moved him to a new barn where he was introduced to a herd for the first time. As low man and first timer to the herd environment he dropped weight incredibly fast. Not only the weight loss, but he had two bouts of minor colic as well. At this time I switched him from a custom mix feed to Buckeye EQ8 Gut Health. I slowly worked him up to 4.5 lbs/day (he’s only being used for some walk/trot right now) and within the last 2 months he has gained back most of his weight and is shiny and happy! No more colic either! I am very impressed with the results and happy that I don’t need to overload Tucker with more grain or supplements. I never thought that Tucker would gain weight as well as he is on just 4.5 lbs/day. Thank you for providing such a wonderful product!"

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!
