What Forco Users Say

A FORCO horse is a healthier horse!

Since opening our web site back in 2005 we’ve received a steady flood of letters and emails from horse owners expounding the virtues of regularly feeding their animals Forco.  We love getting these personal affirmation reviews of the effectiveness of Forco because we care a lot that your and our own animals staying healthy.

As you’ll likely conclude after reading these letters, the vast majority of Forco users all seem to agree that feeding Forco to their animals makes a positive, visible difference in the health of their animals.


Thanks, Jim!

After our dogs and chickens have been on Forco for the past 4-6 weeks, they have shown huge improvements in their coats and feathers! One of our dogs who had a skin infection and whose coat was very dull, now has gained needed weight and has a glossy full coat. Our rooster is also finally growing new feathers where he had bad molting spots.

Forco is definitely going to be part of their diet now for good!!!

Thanks so much!

Hi, Jim,

Started our 42 broilers and 5 laying hens as day-old chicks 2-1/2 weeks ago, and at the risk of sounding crude, their poop looks great! I attribute this to the Forco, and wouldn’t want to be without it.

Thank you–

Hello this is FireTigeris from Backyard Chickens

I have been dosing my two 60# dogs, Dawn the three-year-old greyhound, and Amber the 2-year-old APBT, at 2 teaspoons each once a day.
They are currently on Diamond Premium Adult Dog food at Three Cups each, once a day.
(They are ideal or nearly ideal weight, food is adjusted according to condition)
I am simply adding Forco to the food, they will eat Forco out of my hand w/o any food.

These are my dog’s issues:

  • (rescued 3 months ago) Amber- Smelly breath, smelly coat (wet dog scent), frequent horrible smelling flatulence, poor coat condition, hot spots, large-wet-smelly stools, frequent stools.

  • (rescued 15 months ago) Dawn- Smelly breath, clean smelling coat, infrequent- horrible flatulence, great coat condition (silky), large-wet-smelly stools, frequent stools.

These are my findings:

  • Day one flatulence in both dogs decreased,

  • Day two flatulence changed ‘scent’- no more “ode ‘d rotten meat”

  • Day three flatulence eliminated for at least 8am-11pm, if they are flatulent after those hours, I am unaware.

  • Day five stools have become firm, less smelly, and smaller in both dogs, sour smell in Amber’s coat eliminated

  • Day five breath changed, almost like puppy breath.

I am very impressed with these changes in my dogs, they seem a little less hungry overall in addition to these other positive changes in under a week.

I would recommend this product at the given dose of 1 teaspoon for every 30# of dog.

I will continue to use this product on my dogs.

Thank you so so much for being so courteous and easy to contact. I absolutely love Forco (my horse does too!). A friend of mine recommended Forco for my mare that was just a bit underweight when I purchased her 1 year ago.  I always recommend it anytime I hear of digestive issues etc…. Now I can say not only is the product wonderful but the customer service is superb as well.  Thank you so much and I wish YOU a wonderful new year as well!!

I have been meaning to write you. My spotted draft gelding has been having belly issues since he came to be mine. I thought it was the hay… Nerves… Whatever.  Your product was the only thing that has worked.

Hi Jim,

I just wanted to say that I am SO pleased with your product.  My horses are doing very well on it. I do not get to feed them the way you direct since I board my horses and I can only give them an ounce about 4-5 times a week.  The results have been great.

I have a rescue horse that has a flat sarcoid on his side. I have had two vets discuss treatment options and both said to leave it alone. Before he was on Forco the sarcoid would form hard nodules, between 3-5 nodules. Then after a few months they would go down but always come back up. Since my horse has been on Forco, the sarcoid has remained flat and now has hair growing over it. My horse has not had any other changes to his feed or forage so I have to believe that your product has helped him immensely.

Thank you for your great product and thank you for your extremely prompt delivery!!

Your new best friend 🙂

Hi Jim,

I spoke with you before (via email) about an older gelding with a problem with diarrhea. The Forco IS working and he’s even started to fill out some. It’s been a long term problem with him and I’ve tried feed changes, prebiotics nothing seemed to get it under control. I started him on Forco a month or two ago and it’s improved greatly. He hasn’t had any in over a week now. great product!

“I have been using Forco for 20 months for my 19-year old Arab mare and have found it to be a very beneficial supplement. My mare was regularly experiencing mild gas colics and after my vet recommended Forco she has not had one colic scare and her manure production has nearly doubled, which I consider a sign of a much improved gut.”

Thanks Jim,

I am a long time Forco customer and use your product on all seven of my horses…I am a silver-haired granny and have practiced “gentle horsemanship” my entire life and I continue to read and learn and understand as much as I can about these wonderful creatures. I usually end up with horses that are from Champion bloodlines that have been badly treated… as in the old cowboy way of making a horse mind” through force and intimidation. They usually arrive with issues that I know were created by some “idiot two-legged”. And so I spend as long as it takes to rebuild trust and calm. My horses are drop-dead gorgeous on the outside and jaw dropping awesome on the inside, NOW, that they have learned to trust and love and be respected by humans.

I purchased a lovely palomino gelding last year that was so mentally broken that my heart ached every time I walked him. He was angry, aggressive, and dangerous when he arrived. His feet were bleeding from a hurried up overdue trim and he was about 100lbs underweight. He reared and bit and struck out and was full of anger… a year later he is groomed, trimmed, saddled, etc. free in the pasture with other horses around. He is the best behaved and the most loyal horse on the ranch. His nobility has been restored and he is a joy to be around even for my novice handler hubby. He is once again a proud Peruvian Paso with dignity and calm. I am constantly asked by other horse folks who just don’t get it… “why haven’t you ridden that gelding yet?” When I try to explain that I had to “heal his heart first”… they simply couldn’t understand. He is now begging me to ride and is finally ready to relax, enjoy himself and be attentive to his mount. If I had tried to saddle and ride him when he first came in, it would have been disastrous for both of us.

I could tell stories about the horses I’ve rehabbed with severe trust issues that no one else could seem to MAKE mind. I don’t MAKE my horses mind. I teach them to understand and I try to understand them as well. I never hit, jerk, or mistreat any of my horses and yet they know when they are being corrected or admonished. A recent wild stallion ( a 34″ miniature) that had been abused, used for a teaser for fighting dogs, thrown off a cliff and left for dead and was found belly up with coyotes chewing him to pieces. He was so starved, full of infection, and fear and anger, when he came, I thought I had bit off more than I could chew. He was too weak to stand and the first two weeks he slept on our deck on a dog bed so I could hold his head in my lap and hand feed him. When he recovered he was the real deal… stallion and all. So full of himself and ornery. 8 months later he is giving kisses, and every day he lets our Chihuahua “Eddie” ride on his back and we walk through the woods for hours with him being such a good fellow and never once loosing his canine passenger. NOW that is some horse! He has also been give a job and is trained to drive a cart and loves having a job. I had to heal his heart as well.

I have little patience for folks who buy horses, pretty them up, stall them, bring them out for shows or occasional rides and yank them around, yell at them, jerk on their noses, slap them with the lead rope.. all physical abuse in my book. They wouldn’t treat their children this way and yet they don’t understand that a horse is even MORE sensitive than most children. I know good people who think they know how to handle a horse and they believe that they are good owners… but i have to say, I am shocked and appalled at what I see these good people doing to their horses. You really should have to get a license that requires some schooling to even own one.

So Jim, I direct as many folks as I can to sites, such as your own, to educate themselves on the better way to have a relationship with a horse. The NATURAL way. The proof is in the pudding… when they see what I have accomplished with horses, no one else could deal with, by just treating them with respect and fairness they want to know how I do it… Sure, if one gets lippy and nips or pushes into my space, without permission, they get a pop on the chops or a backing up etc… but so rarely does this happen now that they know they will not be abused by me. Three of them are now playing my harmonica with me when I sit in their pasture. Muzzle right against the harmonica. The miniature likes to sing along and the others prefer the hammered dulcimer… go figure. I don’t play either well… but they don’t care.

Sorry to ramble… but folks like you are giving horse owners a better reputation by just being good to them. I thought I would thank you.

Just a quick update. Kody has been on Forco for about 2 weeks now and his terrible ‘squirty’ gas problem has all but disappeared.  Oh, he still ‘sounds off’ with a little gas but it’s just noise — not junk that dribbles down his legs.  It’s SO nice to have him be ‘normal’.  Kody has had this problem since I brought him home and I was afraid it was something I was going to have to live with.  Thank goodness that isn’t the case.

I am giving him 2 oz. a day as a maintenance dose and it seems to be working it’s magic.  My farrier is also much happier.  lolThank you so much for this GREAT product!!

“Thank you for offering Forco at such a good price.  My big horse, Chuey, has had chronic diarrhea for the fifteen years I’ve had him. When I feed him his Forco, the diarrhea disappears.”

Thanks, Jim,

I have 4 Peruvian Pasos on Forco… all with various issues that it seems to help but I most recently had tremendous success with a rescued miniature that had been drug off a 30 ft cliff by coyotes and chewed up pretty bad, then locked in a dark shed for a couple of months. He was very ill with massive infections and tremendous weight loss. A boat load of antibiotics, creams, a lot of TLC and Forco later he is now the “stud” of the place. My vet is amazed at his recovery. So I keep on using Forco and feeding good food but less of it now that they are utilizing more of it. Money well spent. My horses glow and are bright, alert and energetic.

Thanks again.

Laurie Buscher

PS: Thanks for the extra 5 lbs as well.

Still need convincing?

Well, some folks do need more convincing than others and that’s OK, we understand that so we’re hereby encouraging that you check out some of the independent sources of Forco reviews. They’ve been posted online for years.
