davyamy4451 ,

Great listen!!

I have absolutely loved listening to this podcast. I stumbled across it with buying some supplements online and I have listened to the same episodes multiple times to retain knowledge. AWESOME!!!

catjaquina ,

So educational!

Thank u so much for these podcast. I have recently moved to North Carolina from Northern California, and the feed is polar opposite. My spoiled alfalfa feed horses had the hardest time adjusting to the new feed. Ended up finding the right feed thanks to this podcast. Wish we had the option to buy blue bonnet feed, but who knows the military might send us to a place that supplies blue bonnet ! Fingers crossed 🤞🏼

Tangerea ,

Thank you

I recently started feeding Bluebonnet feed and a few of the Stride products as well, I have 8 horses and I barrel race . It’s been probably 4 months now, and so far I’m very happy with my feed program. My horses look good and what I think I’m seeing more than anything is that all my horses seem to be calmer my 4 year olds are being ridden regularly but it just seems they have happier attitudes. I’m looking forward to our future with this in my program. I absolutely love to learn, and these podcasts are so full of very educational information. Thanks so much I’m always anxious for the next one to come out😊😊😊
