Thanks for visiting the site where you’ll learn about the benefits of feeding your horse Forco, the most recommended digestive aid supplement available for your horse’s good health. I’m Jim Rea, owner of  I’m a Forco evangelist because over the more than 50 years I’ve worked with and cared for horses, Forco has time and time again proven it’s worth in the maintenance of a healthy, happy horse.

Why Forco Supplements?

Over the years, my daily experience with horses (and a menagerie of other animals) is simply this: Forco has proven itself to be the most effective orally administered digestive aid for horses and other animals.  Of course, that is a statement you would expect to hear from someone who is selling Forco throughout this website, isn’t it?  However, please read on and allow me to explain why I believe Forco does exactly what it claims to do and why I believe in it.

The health of your horse’s digestive system is the foundation of your horse’s overall health

The best example of this is when your horse is treated with antibiotics. Antibiotics kill all the bugs – good bugs and bad bugs alike; it doesn’t matter to antibiotics. After a course of antibiotics how does your horse look? As my mother would have said: “A little peaked.”  When using antibiotics beneficial bacteria as well as pathogenic bacteria have been killed and so it takes time for the beneficial bacteria to regroup and blossom.

How I was originally introduced to Forco was when a big grey thoroughbred I had got some kind of crud, coliced and subsequently sort of recovered. He would stand in his pen, look at me and seem to say “I might die any day now.”  I gave him everything I or vets could think of, “vitamin this”, “lactobacillus” that, and everything in between.  None of it helped. One of my clients named Gwen Leino told me about Forco, I took him off everything, gave him two ounces of Forco a day, all the grass hay he would eat, about seven pounds of alfalfa a day along with a mineral I really like called Cal’s, and free choice salt. After about a week, he brightened up with a look that kind of said to me “well I might not die after all.”  During the following six months he gained about 300 pounds. I thought to myself: “this is pretty good stuff.”  Subsequently I recommended Forco to my horse training clients, with great success.  Having become a believer I looked around on the internet and couldn’t find a place to buy Forco online so I started While I’m certainly not ready to buy a personal jet, sales have steadily increased each year and a matching flood of very positive testimonials just keep on coming in.
