Insulin Resistant / Cushing's Horses
Retail Feed Store Wish List

Mom & Pop Feed stores can build a great niche of loyal customers by supplying products for Insulin Resistant and Cushing's horses. This list is a preliminary copy of a list that can help these feed stores select and order products that will attract and hold clients. If you have one of these types of horses and have more information on these companies and products that will assist retailers, please forward it to me. If you have a small feed retailer that may consider building an inventory, printing off this list may help them decide to invest in the inventory.

If your favorite feed store carries these products, I will build a list that describes who they are, where they are located and what they sell.

There is a demand for these products and retailers looking for good products to offer. Lets try the list and see what happens!
