March 2024 will be a year of Osteomaxx for our appaloosa mare. 2021 we thought we were losing her to founder that started as an abscess, turned to bone infection, then founder. Avery a full recovery she was doing so great except every other week she seemed to have another abcess. Since she started Osteomaxx she hasn't had a single abscess. About 6 weeks ago I added GutX and within 3-4 weeks noticed she had rounded out so well and that slight ribby look was gone.
My mare is doing so much better with this. Her tail has grown inches since starting last summer! She’s a totally different horse!! Thank you
These products keep my horse happy and healthy! His performance level for 16 is great!
My horse Tyd was on the track (Harness Racing track) for many years. He was well taken care of at the track , but when he retired he wasn’t adjusting well to turnout. He wanted to be inside. I was told this when I adopted him. I started him right away on GutX for his gut and I also started OsteoMax for his wear and tear on his joints. Both supplements really helped him to relax and enjoy his new job as a trail horse. He now enjoys 24 hour turnout in nice weather. Thank you for marketing such great products.
My 12 year old thoroughbred has had stifle issues in the past and has had to be injected. Since I've had him on Osteo Max (and Gut X, of course), NO MORE stifle injections. He also recently had a kick injury and it healed up in record time, surely with the help of Osteo Max. He's going to stay on it for life ! I also got 4 other boarders to start using the 100X Equine products - all with great results !
My senior horse was struggling with hoof wall separation and the added discomfort of arthritis. He was on OsteoMax and Gut-X and my vet was super impressed with the progress shown in these X- rays which are only a few months apart.
I have three horses on your products and they just keep improving one has the first sign of navicvthe coffin bone is now straight one horse had a cut back tendon vet could not believe how that has healed in threes months soooooo happy with this product!
GutX and osteomax are the supplements that keep our horses sound and happy
I always take Gut X and Osteomax to the horse shows with me and a little half gallon bonus is perfect for travel so you can leave the larger jugs at home.
I have had my 20yo TB on Osteomax/Gutx for about a year now and I don't think I will ever take him off it. He seems the best he has ever been. No more equioxx. Soundest he's ever been. Calmest and happy. I was able to take him off of all other joint/feet/gut supplements and really simplify his feeding.
My boys are on Gutx for fecal water syndrome and Osteo for joints and they have made a huge difference! No more poop butt! And joints are healthier than ever!
Taco is 19, he has been on Gutx since January of 22 and Osteo-MAX since April of 23. He feels great, his attitude is happy-go-lucky , his coat and feet are in beautiful condition. He will be on these 2 products for the rest of his life. The before and after pictures do not tell the whole story. Highly recommend !
This is my 28yo Paint! This time last year he suffered a bowed tendon in left front. I started on 100X products, and settled on OsteoFex and GutX. My 27yo mare and this Gelding, her bro, are acting easily 10years younger!! Love your products and how they have improved the lives of my 2 elders as well as my 10yo QH healing from laminitis in both fronts after a bout of WLD in a rear- limb transfer of weight led to the laminitis. He's doing well faster than expected. Thank you all❣️
All of my horses are doing great on GutX and Osteo Max!
Cinco runs on the gut x and osteomax and we love it. All the horses I run on Gut x!!!!
DQ has done so well on Osteo Max that I’ve started the other competition horses it as well.
I have had this gem on GUTX and OSTEO Max since the beginning. She has strong bones, beautiful coat and a healthy gut. I wouldn't have it any other way.
love these products for my horses, myself and an elderly cat
Excellent product that keeps horses performing comfortably
Great product. We have our reined cowhorses, ranch and breakaway horse on Osteomax and GutX, as well as our old guy and 2 yr old. The whole barn!
We have 10 horses and they are all on GutX no more ulcers or diarrhea. I recently started our seniors on the osetomax and the have definitely shown improvement. They are more mobil and not cracking anymore.
My boy tested positive for lymes he was actually cronic lost alot of weight along with his antibiotics I was giving gutx and it's helped immensely I believe this is helping him put weight back on also !
My mare was horribly lame from her navicular, the farrier put wedges on her and it helped some, but she was still in pain. The only other thing that has changed is she has been on Osteomax for about 10 - 11 months. She looks amazing. I thought I would be putting her down by spring she was so bad. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My ottb came to me highly stressed, pained and with PTSD issues. I have struggled for years straightening out his issues with all signs of hindgut stress and stress in general (girthy, cribbing, aggressive biting and kicking when touched, kicking at leg pressure, everything except diarrhea!) I used Osteo/GutX at the suggestion of my farrier and finally, I noticed a significant change. I could then groom him safely without the violence and no more coming at me (literally)! He became pleasant and we got back to riding. I ran out and thought, well, let's see what happens. Needless to say, I am reordering ASAP as he is back to his painful ways. Whether it is Osteo or Gut or the combination, I don't know and don't care to find out! We are going back to both of them. Thanks 100X!!
Jimoaka is 28 this year, she was born in my arms practically. She became very stiff this year and the way she was moving was unsettling. The last time my farrier was here she couldn't hold her self up when he was trimming her back feet. I ordered the Osteo Max and started her on it on Jan 25th, so it's been about a month. I noticed she was trotting into her stall from her run a couple weeks ago. I've been taking her for 1 mile walks and she wants to trot now and when she's walking she's moving so much better. You know when they get to be this age it's scary and you wonder if "that" time has come and now I see her moving around so much better, makes my heart sing.
Cleo is our 28 year old dutch warmblood mare. I wanted to put her back to work two years ago when I was between horses after haveing four nice babies for us. with her age and the toll carying foals put on her her back tendons were not in good shape. After a lot of ground work she took to going back to work well but was struggling with joint pain and stiffness. She was also very cinchy. After putting her on Osteo-MAX - Equine we saw great improvement inless joint pain and swelling in her tendons. We were so happy with the results we decided to put her on Gut X - Equine. The cinchiness is almost totally gone and her over all health seems much better. She and I did our century ride last fall . I was having a lot of muscle pain and knee pain so I decided to try Joint X One - Human so I can keep up with Cleo. half way through the first bottle I was feeling much bettere almost no knee pain and now done with the bottle very little muscle pain. I have the next bottle on its way to me.
GutX and OsteoMax are keepers for life. At 24 years young I know my horse has the best to keep him going strong. I wouldn't be without either of these products.
These products are great!! They help my horses feel their best both in their gut and in bone/joint health. Improved performance and a decrease in maintenance injections! I can’t say enough good things about these products!!
This is my 28 year old mare! She is the light of my life and unfortunately has arthritis in her ankles, and started having issues digesting. She wouldn't eat all her hay and was having really soft piles, even liquid sometimes. My vet said it was old age and to start looking into a prebiotic. Well after some research we decided to take her off her previcox and put her on Osteo-Max and also Gut X. And WOW! She has only been on them for 2 weeks now. And the Gut X has done WONDERS for her! She hasn't had a solid pile in months and after 2 WEEKS of Gut X she is back to having 100% SOLID piles! And she is back to eating her full hay net! I know it all takes time and the Osteo I feel will take some time to really start gettin to those ankles, but I will say she definitely stands better and she is slowly starting to walk less stiff then usual! And is not in pain! She ALWAYS talks when you walk in the barn, but when she is in pain or discomfort she completely stops talkin not even for her grain. So far 2 weeks on Osteo-Max and she is back to her talkative self and lovin life❤️ I couldn't be happier! Her health and well-being is the most important thing in my life and so far with Osteo-Max and Gut X I feel sooo relieved to see her improvements!
Have 2 horses age 20 and 21 and a 2yr old on Osteomax and gut x love it
Gus keeps moving for our tiniest tots on osteomax and gutx!! We love your products!
Gut X and Osteomax are amazing products! These two miracle supplements have made my 19 year old quarter horse move and look like he is a youngster again. His coat, body composition, mind and movements are like they have never been before. I have seen a miraculous difference in him this winter. Just looking at his coat in the dead of winter in Virginia! You can see the difference from the first picture at the water trough (NOV 2023) compared to his picture in the aisle (DEC 2023) after only taking 100X Equine for a month. I can't wait to see what the spring and summer show season holds for us! Thank you 100X Equine, this stuff is truly amazing!!
Pepper, my 26 yr old quarter horse paint (solid), has arthritis badly and is a very hard keeper. I have tried many things to help his pain and movement, as well as keeping his weight and top line as he ages. I prefer the natural route over medications that damage organs, but had about given up until seeing reviews for 100X products. I took a chance and tried the OesteoMax first. Pepper loves to run and go. It broke my heart to see him so limited and short stepping in the front. He would try to run, but would o ly last a few strides. After being on OsteoMax for a couple of weeks, I noticed a definite difference in his movement . He was shortstepping and he would run the arena for several minutes and then go 'trm the trees". I then added RegenX and GutX. What a difference in his coat and body condition after a week! He obviously feels better, too. The trimmer came ti trim feet and saw him moving in the corral, trotting, running and playing, and declared she hadn't seen him move like that in a long time! She is a believer and spreading the word, too! I couldn't get the video of him running in the arena with my other horse to load with the pictures. It sure gave my tears of joy to see him pain free and doing what he loved at 26 yrs. old!
Pictures say it all! After a visit with the vet my neighbor was heartbroken thinking he would never ride his horse again. He was experiencing lameness and his overall health was deteriorating. I had recently started my horse on osteo-max. I shared your brochure with him, and he asked me if I could place an order for both Osteo-Max and GutX which I immediately did. So here we are 30 days later and both horse and neighbor are thrilled with his results. I see a ride in his near future.. nothing short of magical!
Gut-x and osteo max have helped Stitch become more comfortable in the alley!
I've had my 5 year old mustang on Gutx and Osteomax for almost a year now as a preventative. Since then her mood overall has become so much better, she seems much more comfortable and happy. Her coat and feet and mane and tail have also improved drastically! She had a short and thin tail when I first got her and now her tail is so full and touching the ground!
Osteo Max has been a game changer for me and my animals. This winter i have had my filly in training. The Osteo Max has been great supporting Sharki through the stress of work plus growing. I also have Sharki on GutX to add her digestive system. Its a winning combination! Thank you 100X for great products that work!
100X Gut X and Osteomax combo Story time If you know my yellow horse, you know he’s quite the quirky one. But, as an owner you just know when something is off and when they haven’t been acting right and can tell a quirk from a true problem. I had moved my horse to a new boarding facility and he settled in very well. After about a month or two, due to pasture arrangements, I decided to move him up to a different barn on the same property. Almost immediately this horse’s attitude took a 180, for the worse. He became extremely anxious to the point that he wasn’t happy inside or outside, alone or with other horses. Though he did behave much better when other horses were nearby- I knew something wasn’t right. He had been on stall rest so I assumed being cooped up is what was creating these problems and behavior issues. Then I thought maybe a disruption in his regular routine and moving facilities was factoring into his behavior. After a couple of weeks of this behavior I had a friend that lives just a few miles down the road from my home offer a couple stalls to me. I was finally able to have both of my horses back in one spot again, so I took her up on the offer and moved. This yellow horse, mind you, has now moved three times in less than 12 months due to unforeseen circumstances so I really started to think that his behavior was due to the constant changes and changes in routine and his herd. Once I got him settled into my friend’s (whom had him here for years in the past) he seemed to settle in and relax a little. He got back into a routine with old pasture mates, and things seemed to be going better, but still something was not quite right. He was being a bully to a couple of the horses and that was NOT like my yellow horse at all. If you know this horse, he gets along with whatever you put in his pasture- mare or gelding. He’s never done damage to another horse since I have owned him that I have witnessed. He’s always gotten along with everyone. During this time, he went after two different horses so bad that we had to pull them out of his pasture. Between his behavior and some ongoing lameness, I called the vet out and we took x rays which showed navicular and ringbone. Because of this I finally decided to order Osteomax and decided hey, why not grab a gallon of the Gut X while I am at it. Fast forward just a few weeks and this horse’s behavior was much better and went from head bobbing lame to sound about a month and a half in. Due to an error on my end, we ran out of supplements and this horse was off of his Osteomax and Gut X for about a month and a half before I ordered more. When I tell you he turned into a monster, I mean it. This horse, though quirky, has one of the sweetest personalities. He started to get worse and worse to turn out and bring in, almost to the point you couldn’t handle him. He was aggressive outside, pinning his ears, and even tried to bite me. He would come to the gate running like a mad man and would turn his butt and give us a very hard time haltering him. Again- if you know this horse, you KNOW, this is not normal behavior. I quickly ran to 100X and ordered my supps as fast as possible. As soon as they were delivered to my doorstep I ran them out to the barn and we started them that night. Fast forward about a week and a half, and within the past four days this horse taken a 180 and finally for the BETTER. He has been a complete gentleman coming in and out of the pasture, comes right up to you to be haltered, is playing with his pasture mate, and nowhere near as anxious as he was before. I am finally relieved that we are getting answers and that 100X could help us along the way!!!! THANK YOU 100X for doing your magic! For whomever it concerns: YES- our vet is involved and we will treat this horse accordingly BUT 100X will forever stay in our feeding regime.
My 16 yr barrel horse was suddenly lame about every 2 weeks until I tried Osteomax, and since I suspected ulcers I tried GutX too. She’s back to being ridden daily and now competing. So pleased!
Our boys are happy and healthy on Gut-X and Osteo Max!
So far has helped my horse feel so much better!
So far the Gutx and Ostemax are amazing. Our horde has only been on it for 2 weeks and we are already noticing a difference in his appearance and attitude. Can't wait for the next couple of months
My retired mules are improving daily since they started on Gut X and Osteo Max. Digestion is improving and they are both moving more fluidly.
I LOVE Gut X and Osteo-max! They have done wonders for my barrel horses and my older retired horses! You cant go wrong with 100X products.
My gelding has Cushings and EMS so I give Gut X to help protect him because of the various medications he is on.
Both of mares look amazing on it I highly recommend gut X and osteo-max
I have several horses on GutX, Osteomax, Regenex. I believe in the products and the horses have had really good results. All nagging problems are gone.
I have two horses in the barn on this . My 23year old mare has had bouts of laminitis for some months now . Since being on Osteomax she is actually able to walk out to the paddock … Which she could not do before … A plus is she loves this and eats it very well …
Always stocked up on GutX and OsteoMax. Cannot get enough of it!
I have been giving this to my horses for about a year and I haven’t had to put shoes on them, as their hooves are harder and healthier. Also my mare is 20 and has arthritis in her knee and she moves much better being on the supplement.
We love this product for all of our roping/ barrel horses and they love it too!
Osteomax and Gutx are a vital part of my feeding program. I am very happy with the results that I see with these products.
George is on GutX and Osteomax. Look at that shine on his coat! He lives outside full time in Florida. He came to me as an ulcer horse, very unhappy, picky eater, grouchy, etc. He’s a very happy horse these days. Thanks 100X Equine!
Great product. We use both on our working cow horses and are very pleased with results .
These products have been a game changer for my mare. She's so much happier, eats good away from home, her over all appearance has improved.
I have put the entire barn on 100x. Our 18 year old gelding has been on Osteo-Max for 4 months. He has had soft tissue inflammation in his front feet for the past few years. Injections annually has been a routine along with various joint supplements over the last 4-5 years. He is 13 months since his last injection and is moving as fluid as I can ever temper him traveling . Started with the loading dose and have kept him on 2 pumps daily. I have a 5 year old that came up lame in front left during a round pen exercise session. I started her on 2 pumps a day of Osteo-Max and in 10 days she is traveling sound. Only 2 days of poultice was used in addition to Osteo-Max. No other meds. I’ve started an 18 year broodmare on Gut-X to help her gut health and maintain and good reproduction conformation. I’ve also just started two chronic cribbers and one 3 year old that just doesn’t look healthy on Gut-X. I’ll give a 30 day update on the progress of those Gut-X users.
These two are great!
I was recommended product by a judge at a horse show. My horses had a few hock and stifle injuries and had time off to recover. Shes on gutx and stayed on loading dose of osteomax and she is coming back stronger than ever with a much bigger stride then she’s ever had!
We love this product for our team roping and barrel racing horses !
GutX is part of my rehab plan for my rescue horse, Titan. He came to me as an underweight, 15yo gelding diagnosed with arthritis, navicular syndrome, and frequent abscessing and colic issues. Since using this product he has not had colic. He’s also on OsteoMax, forage only diet, and switched from rehab shoes to balanced barefoot trims. Wow! This boy is thriving! It takes time for a transformation like this but it is working!!
I love these products
Photos are from Day 1, and Day 30. The real effect has been the improvement of my horse’s comfort. He’s been diagnosed with arthritis and navicular syndrome, so these supplements are part of my rehab plan for him. After starting OsteoMax and GutX, plus removing his shoes and using a certified barefoot trimmer, and switching to a forage only diet, my horse has greatly improved! He’s happier, looks better, and stopped having abscesses too!
My all around rodeo horse gets loose stools when traveling and/or stressed. Gut X has helped tremendously and we have been able to discontinue Probios. All horses are now getting Gut X and Osteo Max. What a great combination!
I started with the osteo-max and was so happy with the results that I also started the gut x. I love both of these products and will not go without them
Pierre at 19 years young & with EPM can still compete with the help of GutX and osteomax
My mules are doing great. This is what they get all winter. 1 1)2 osteomax and 1 dose of gutx. I tell all my friends and new people about these products. Sold for life.
Tried the Osteomax for my gelding whose hocks were a little sticky. Not lame just a little uncomfortable really working over them. His attitude was much better with the Osteomax so I am ordering more.
I have been using the 100X products for over a year for my horses, dogs and myself. They are amazing! I have told my friends about my results and many if them use the 100X products also. The facebook page is a great place to find answers to any questions that come up. When ive called in the people on the phone have been friendly and helpful. Over all its 5 stars for 100X!!!
Love it so far, can't wait to watch it work
Love Love Love!!! Keeps my horse at his best!
My gelding had a stifle infection and inflammation put him on GX and Osteomax and it made a terrific dish difference. He’s gained weight he’s happy he’s very healthy and I can’t thank you enough.
Gutx and OsteoMax got this horse back to being himself
Horses have done great on this product.
I currently use GutX and Osteomax for my horse Romeo. These products keep him sound and happy for both barrel racing and trail riding. He is well loved and cared for and I'm thankful that these products keep him feeling good. Thank YOU!
Rum is a QH mare that loves to trail ride and started on barrels. When she first was started riding we sent her to a trainer. Halfway through her training the trainer called and said she’s very cinchy and cranky. We instantly started her on gutx. Problem solved! She also has long pasterns in the back we started her on ostro max and since she’s still growing it’s seems to help. Overall the combination of both products has made her awesome mare. She looks healthy moves freely and is no longer cinchy. Bring on the warmer days and we will be headed out on long trail rides and maybe even hit a few rodeos this summer. Thanks 100 X Equine!!
Both my horses are on these 2 products. Have seen a great deal of improvement with them both!
I love gutX and Osteomax!
Great products that make a difference!
roney has had several issues torn exterior flexor tendon then flapper surgery then grain blocked his esophagus he is 23 yrs old. This pic was taken after blockage removed and last pic was 30 days ago. I have had him on osteomax and guts since May and he is still on it. Last week he was bucking and running in his lot, ready to get backvto team roping. Thank you 100x.
I first tried GutX a couple years ago for the horses I was running but once I saw the night and day difference it made for my preemie filly with major signs of ulcers I was sold and have had my entire barn on it since then! I’ve also used the OsteoMax for a few of them and really like it as well!
WE BRED AND RAISED THIS 17 HAND HIGH PALAMINO GELDING WITH AMAZING BREEDING AND BLOODLINES. DALLAS WENT THROUGH SOME HORRIFIC ACCIDENTS AND COMBINATIONS OF ....STUFF. WE HAVE BEEN USING ALL OF THE 100X EQUINE PRODUCTS FOR 1 YEAR AND HAVE SEEN AMAZING GREAT RESULTS FOR ALL OUR ROPING HORSES AND BARREL RACING HORSES. THANK YOU 100X EQUINE FOR YOUR PRODUCTS.
Gutx and osteomax have changed my horses life drastically! He went from being a hard keeper in the summer, to now it’s the dead winter and I only feed a quarter of what I was feeding and he is happy and healthy! He’s never looked better or had as much energy as he does now! I’m so grateful I decided to use these products!
These products have been important for Eli and have worked well in keeping him comfortable and maintaining show conditioning. He is 21 and going strong. Thank you!
All 3 of our OTTB’s look AMAZING on OsteoMax and GutX! One even spent 6 months between the hospital and Rehab this year and was never expected to be sound again. Completely sound and jumping around a full course thanks to OsteoMax! We are customers for life!
I just started the Gut X on my new 14yr Aqha gelding that shows hunt seat and he looks fantastic. I have also put him on Osteo-max as well for his hocks that get stiff and he is back to show shape again and feels fantastic to ride again.
During cold snap-15 windchill. look at that glow
I have been using GutX and OsteoMax on both of my show geldings. One of them has always been a bit on the leaner side and hard to keep weight on- after just a month there was a huge difference. My other gelding has been sensitive in many ways throughout his training and showing- spooky, cinchy, leg sensitive, etc. I’m telling you he is none of those things anymore. Being on GutX changed his demeanor completely. They both are on osteomax for joint health! Recently the mare pictures tore her peroneus tertius tendon and was on stall rest for 4 months. Prognosis was iffy- she wa started on a double dose and she is more sound now than before she was injured. I also started her on GutX- as she has aged she lost some of her top line and as you can see she is flourishing. I’ve never been more amazed with these products. I will forever have them as part of our daily regimen.
My senior gelding will be 29 years on March 13th. He is my life and my whole world. EPM struck him down not once but twice. And the treatments were very expensive and long. The vets said his age was one of the main factors for the EPM and the relapse. He was on a differen immune boosting supplement that unfortunately didn't protect him. I have had him on Gutx and Osto- Max for a while now. I think I just ordered his 4th or 5th gallon. And just the other day he ran out to his pasture, tail in the air and rolled completely over in a snow drift. I will always keep him on this supplement as I know one of the most common causes for concern in senior horses can be colic. This has been a hard winter with the below zero temps and blizzards. He is doing fine and is running in his pasture and enjoying his retirement life. I recently added another senior 27 year old gelding that I am boarding to my farm. And he is now on Gutx to keep him healthy. Great product and great results.
My 23 year old mare is doing great on osteo max and gut x. What a difference these products have done for her. She has arthritis in front feet. Bad hind ankle. Old suspensory injuries and old neck injury. After being on these products she is much more willing to move forward and happy to work. Love 100x equine products
Tucker is 28 years old and still going strong. However, he has developed watery bowel over the past 5 years. The GutX has really helped him maintain fairly formed fecal balls. In fact, if we run out, it's cow pie city within 2-3 days! So, we don't run out. He's also on the Osteomax. I feel it helps keep him moving better than any of the many supplements I've tried.
Both my mare and gelding love the supplements!! I love that it makes them feel good and happy!
We have 3 horses, ranging from 15-30 years old, a Golden Retrieve & husband & I are considered seniors. We all take Osteo Max & GutX & life is good. Feeling great since taking these products!
Gutx and Osteo-MAX keep my horse healthy and comfortable ! Highly recommend !
Alice has filled out so much and got stronger and better minded on the GutX and Osteomax. I have all 5 of my horses on Osteomax and 3 on GutX!! They all have beautiful coats and are in fantastic shape!!
Purchased this horse in terrible condition. He has been starved from completely healthy to this condition in six months. I ordered Gut X immediately because I have faith in your products. I already had Osteo Max to start him on later. My first concern was to save his life and help him with any issues he had developed. He is thriving on your products. We are eight days into the process and he already acts like a different horse!
My horse Leelah had issues with keeping weight on and always looking slightly ribby. She also seemed to be very flat muscled and could not properly fill out. Since being on 100x equine products (we first started with Gutx and have now transitioned to Osteomax ) she has maintained her weight and put on a phenomenal amount of muscle. I couldn’t be happier with how she looks!! I would 100% recommend these products to anyone wanting there horse to look and feel their best ❤️
My 18 year old retired barrel horse Casper has navicular and came to me with a very dry mane and hooves. Since putting him on GutX and OsteoMax his hooves are growing so nice and healthy. I have also seen a few inches of new shiny mane growth. He just looks so much healthier! I love what the products have done for him!
In between these photos it is just short of 9 months, I struggled to keep weight and muscle on my senior horse the whole time I’ve owned him. Added Gutx and osteo max to his diet and HOLY COW he is a different horse! His coat is better than ever, he’s gained almost 200 pounds and kept it on, and he’s more comfortable and happy hauling for shows and lessons. He’s moving the best he has in years, no more injections!! Take a chance, this stuff is totally worth it! LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!!!
My horse has been on Gut X for two years with no signs of gastric ulcers! He was also able to discontinue his Previcox, as the Osteo-Max works so well! Highly recommend!!!
