    It's MUCH cheaper. GAS is $179.99 for 20 lbs while OHS is $34.95 for 20 lbs.

    I have noticed so much of a difference in his coat and feet than before. I get compliments all the time on his coat. And his feet were described as "crumbly" by the farrier before and he would pull shoes often. Now I don't remember the last time a shoe was pulled.

    I don't see why it's not safe. It's just flax, yeast, and oats along with vitamins in their natural forms.

    I give Ed 2 oz daily. In a short while I'm thinking about switching my broodmare who is currently in foal to it with the same dosage.

    I hate HGS because of the lack of quality in the pictures, but you can get an idea of the luster he possesses.

    Not to mention as smooth it is. Very easy for clean-up, too.

    There have been so many posts on this... I know someone posted about their "experience" with the Gold as Sun, and Black as Knight, and it was not good I wish I could remember who it was. I use Glanzen 3 which is also an "all-around" supplement w/ flaxseed for healthy shiny coat, and it has twice the biotin as most supplements for hooves and the coat. Skip has been on it for a month, and his coat is extremely shiny.

    You can't compare apples to oranges!

    While the price/lb is much cheaper....

    A 20 lb bucket of GAS will last you 430 days (at recommended doseage).

    A 20 lb bucket of OHS will only last you 160 days!

    Big difference! That's more than 2 1/2 times the servings in the GAS as opposed to OHS.

    In short, one serving of OHS is about 22 cents.

    One serving of GAS is 41 cents.

    Is it more expensive? Yes. But not nearly as much as this post made it out to be. It's less than twice as expensive. Not 5 times as expensive as this post leads you to believe.

    I'm very interested in this thread... I've been wondering about my Palomino's color ever since he was born. Waiting and waiting for him to get darker. People tell me wait until he's about 4 and he'll probably get darker... but that's so long. He's only 2 1/2 now.

    This is him at his darkest he's ever been...

    And him now...

    I really can't do that because my stalls are 12' X 24' and only 12' are covered... when he's in his stall during the day he will stand or lay out in the sun anyways. Plus he'd just go bonkers being locked up...
