I'm from the UK. So I'm guessing that's why I'm not familiar with NASC.

8/19/2013 6:55:57 PM

in what country?

8/18/2013 9:28:02 AM

NASC is what we have so take advantage of it.

8/17/2013 4:16:08 PM

my horses are on pasture & I feed hay in winter

8/16/2013 12:10:25 PM

NASC seal is good, yet effective supplements without are also worth using.

8/16/2013 7:28:08 AM

supplement my horseswith herbs

8/15/2013 8:29:45 PM

I use brand names and hope for the best

8/15/2013 7:49:57 PM

If it's not in the feed, I need new feed not a supplement.

8/15/2013 7:30:12 PM

Also, I am not familiar w/NASC & what it means.

8/15/2013 7:07:39 PM

very particular on what is even purchased

8/15/2013 4:46:58 PM

word of mouth works great for if a product is good or not.

8/14/2013 10:24:13 PM

I've always seen the emblem & thought it was a rating group, and recognized it as an important fact

8/14/2013 3:36:15 PM

without it I don't trust that the manufacturer is putting what they say they are in the supplement.

8/14/2013 1:11:51 PM

My horses are teenage pasture potatoes, just basic hay diet - no need to supplement at this time.

8/14/2013 10:04:31 AM

I prefer supplements with the seal, but don't totally rule out using one without it.

8/14/2013 7:50:17 AM

All else being equal, I would probably choose the product with the seal over one without.

8/14/2013 7:19:32 AM

None of my three horses (20-, 16-, and a three-year old) need them yet, thank God! :)

8/13/2013 10:36:52 PM

I always look for it, but some supplements I use dont have it.

8/13/2013 8:52:57 PM

just water salt and hay.

8/13/2013 8:15:40 PM

I don't currently use supplements, but I alwways look for the seal when I do.

8/13/2013 7:54:39 PM

Didnt know anything about it

8/13/2013 7:22:20 PM

depends on what I'm buying

8/13/2013 6:22:25 PM

I'll be looking now.

8/13/2013 5:44:19 PM

I get my supplements from my vet.

8/13/2013 5:00:45 PM

If the seal is there, it's there, but little influence over my choices.

8/13/2013 4:35:46 PM

I buy supplements for my 33 year old gelding and like to know that I am getting what I am paying for

8/13/2013 2:30:07 PM

It's kind of like the FDA...not real useful as they can have the seal and still be garbage.

8/13/2013 1:28:33 PM

The person who trims my horses' hoofs recommended California Trace.Copper/zinc are low in our soil

8/13/2013 12:06:39 PM

Was not aware of NASC. Will check my current supplements.

8/13/2013 10:34:54 AM

It won't deter me from buying a product that doesn't have it, but it's nice to see.
