Definitely not too good to be true.  I won't share my story again here, but you can search and see all of the things it's done for me and my horse.  I did follow the suggested dosage to a T and double dosed the first 14 days, then backed down to a maintenance dose.  Didn't change my feeding program until about 45 days into the product due to the dramatic changes i'd already seen and my horse continues to improve.

It honestly is NOT too good to be true! I was desperate to find something that would help my mare. She had a horrible, deep cough that I tried many different things and lots of $ to fix. Nothing seemed to work. I read one of Herbie's posts (THANK YOU HERBIE) and decided to try the CurOst. I noticed a difference right away. She did start coughing more but it was a more productive cough and pretty soon she was coughing out lots of phlegm - something she hadn't been able to do. By day 14, she was not coughing at all anymore. I continued for 30 days and am now at maintenance and she is doing great - a whole different horse than we have had for the last several years. She has much more energy and stamina. Like Herbie, I had tried just about everything for her and nothing was helping. It was expensive at first, but if I were to add up all the money I have spent over the years on everything that did nothing to help, the CurOst is actually quite reasonable - I finally got results from something. I just ordered a different formula for another horse and am anxious to try that. After seeing the results with my mare, a friend ordered one of the human formulas. She has been able to go off her prescription medication that she has been on for years, has had no side effects (from the CurOst or from going off her medications - she usually has had problems when trying to quit her medication) and is really happy (except for the taste which I guess is awful!). The horse formula does not smell or seem to taste bad, my mare ate hers right up. It does work and is well worth the money.

Yes It is too good to be true! lol I am so glad that the product is natural! it smells good dont have the human version. I guess I am backwards because I was trying on my horse to see before I ordered for hubby lol because it has helped them so much Im gonna order for hubby-hubby is on zeal and Cur-ost is cheaper than zeal so anxious to try! My horse is very mannerly and patient well this morning (been on Cur-ost 12 days he was pacing back and forth wanting his Cur-ost! He licks his feed bowl super clean! He never is anxious for his feed. So glad I took the plunge!

I ordered the stomach formula & EQ Plus for my horse today.  Was told to start with stomach to get hind gut issues under control then add EQ plus.  He recently bled after a run & tried him on Lasik this weekend.  Did not like it all.  Hope the combination will get ulcers & bleeding under control.  Was told I would only need the stomach formula for a couple months.

The horse formula does not smell or seem to taste bad, my mare ate hers right up. It does work and is well worth the money.

 Same here with cough and phlegm, my horse was standing in stall under fan with labored breathing. And I could not keep him on any feed, he would eat for a week or 2 and quit. I was at my wits end with the feed. I had him on ulcer meds and bluebonnet omega force. I had him eating but at least once a week he wouldn't eat and never cleaned his plate lol. Always had eye/nasal discharge and just didn't look good. He's a different horse. He gets alfalfa, whole oats, and cu-rost. He has blossomed and is the most playful, personable horse on the place. Before he couldn't care less about human interaction. He is an aggressive eater now. His breathing is back to normal, before he got to the point of labored breathing at rest he was taking longer and longer to recover every run I made. He was also always having random areas of swelling in his legs, I was having to keep back on track wraps on him all the time. He is never body sore, even after getting hung up in a lead rope one weekend and having a wreck in the trailer another. And he ran those weekends too. I couldn't be happier with him. I have started another one I'm legging back up after stifle surgery due to severe bone cysts that had gone undiagnosed for years. So far he's great! I'm giving out exercising him and he's not even breathing hard lol, and no body soreness! It has basically just made mine different horses and my feed and supplement bill has been cut in half. Sorry for grammar and spelling, I'm on my phone lol

I use the human stuff. I had started riding in a knee brace because my knee was bit hearing me and was swollen. My hips were giving me some trouble, too. I am now NOT riding in a brace, my knee doesn't hurt and the swelling is pretty much gone. Hips heel great too . It took a little while though. It was very interesting. My knee improved first, almost right away. Then my right hip which was the worst, then my left hip. My mom was diagnosed with advanced arthritis in her hip so I going to see what Cur Ost people recommend and get her some too

well I have to say I was shocked at the choice of banana.  It took my mare a while to warm up to the taste of it.

Last night was our first night on the curost and oats. She is a very aggressive eater and would not touch it. I added sweet feed (handful) to it but apparently it wasn't enough. I added more sweet feed in this morning and cut the curost dose in half. She ate it better this morning.

I heard one time that they did a study & banana & licorice were some of horses favorite flavors. I don't even remember where I heard it now, I think one of those informational meetings the feed companies used to do.

tumeric or curcumin are potent spices used in indian cooking, so they do have a smell they will probably need to get used to if you have a picky one

I used to work for a supplement company and banana is a flavor that conceals less desirable flavors very well so I was not surprised it was banana.  LOL.  My mare was hesitant at first, I mixed some water in mine since I have a dry feed and with her being a PSSM horse cannot have sweet feed.  I am now on my secon week and have gotten up to 2 scoops 2x daily.  I still wet it down but now she is excited to eat and licks her pan clean.

I love the smell of it personally.  Smells like Laffy Taffy!  HAHA  It took my horse about a week to get in his bucket, but he used to be a major feed skeptic and would pick around most anything even if I made it all into a mash.  I didn't start with the whole two scoops twice daily until he was cleaning everything up every feeding.  I moisten my feed, stir, put in supplement, stir and serve.  I do this in the bucket i'm actually feeding him in so that the supplement is on top and less likely to filter out in the bottom.  What he didn't clean up I would just dump on top of his next meal along with the next serving and stir it in.  In a week he was cleaning his plate and now leaves his alfalfa to eat his oats and Cur-OST and literally is a bucket licker.  Prior to this he's never been an aggressive eater....would take him an hour or more to clean up a full scoop of anything.

The human version does taste bad and is gritty (I'm taking the Ultimate and the Immune).  I played with lots of juices to mix it in and found that grape juice is the best for me.  Grape juice is strong and thick so it masks alot of the smell and taste.  Still gritty but I just pretend i'm back in college and CHUG!

 This is intriguing me....I've been through the ringer with my horse and pharyangitis, allergies, and Pneumonia. I know the humidity bothers her and I can only assume because of what she's been through. She is so stoic, hardly shows me a thing and will give me 110% every time so I really have to pay attention to her. 

We’ve been down the antibiotics road (she’s allergic to certain kinds), Dex (made her look and feel like crap), Ventipulmin (made her crazy), Alburteral (bandaid), I still use Wind Aid or Air Power if it is dusty or humid and use Formula 707 stuff in her nose along with Flair Strips occasionally and she is on Allergy Shots. She doesn’t cough, maybe 1 time if it is insanely dusty, and no discharge.

Thinking about how the Pneumonia affected her lungs I put her on Oxy-Gen products to help with her lung support and Immunize pellets for overall health since I haul quite a bit.

Herbie, you have intrigued me! But I feel like such a product junkie, how do you know what to do?!

Yep, Herbie, grape juice is my choice, too. I have tried it lately with blueberry juice that has less sugar and it was ok and I have tried it with cranberry juice and I could choke it down, lol.
