Safe 'n Easy™ Pelleted Testimonials

"I Love this grain-it's low in carbs and sugar and is so healthy.  My horse Loves it!"


"Best grain ever. Love that its low carb and sugars"


Laura, OH:  "Since my older horse has been fed safe n easy, he has not had colic even once. I have owned him almost 12 years and he had reatedly suffered bouts of colic every year. We tried everything! I dont think that is a cure for colic, but I will say that my horse is healthier, no longer looks bloated and seems much calmer and happier!"

Safe N' Easy Helped LSS Starbucks Drop Weight and Add Tone

My horse was on the verge of becoming Insulin Resistant, her neck was getting a crest and she was extremely bloated/fat in her stomach and her whole back end. She was on a dirt lot with hay and only had access to grass when hand grazed. When we moved barns she was still in a dirt lot, with hay and really the only thing that changed was her feed (Buckeye Safe 'n Easy). She almost immediately dropped the extra weight and toned up.

Emaciated two year old horse rehabs with Safe 'N Easy

This is a grossly emaciated, feral filly of 2 years old. She has been rehabbing on Safe 'N Easy Performance. She still has a long way to go, but you can see, the change in her has been remarkable.
We have used many, many brands over the years, and Buckeye products are the only brand we’ve truly seen a difference that sets the feed apart from others, including Purina, Nutrena, Triple Crown and Tribute.

SAFE 'N EASY Helps Retired Mare Keep on Weight & Muscle

After retiring, many of the track horses go through a period where they lose some muscle while they learn about their new retired life. Thanks to Safe N Easy we were able to build this mare's weight and top line right back up! This mare has also foundered, so ensuring a very low starch and sugar diet is essential in maintaining her soundness! Now she gets to live a wonderful retirement getting spoiled rotten!
