    I've never heard of vegetable oil with grain! Affects?
    Oh my gosh he's cute! I normally don't go for taller horses but this boy just happens to be one. Here's something funny, a close friend of mine also bought a 4 year old buckskin gelding, and within two months he went from 15.2 to 16.1!! Please don't happen to my gelding!!!

    Lol oh wow! That's a pretty big jump for 2 months!!! I wish mine would reach atleast 15.2! And thank you! Also vegetable oil will put weight on your horse because of the amount of fat it has in it! When I get my boy over at my house (hopefully soon) I will be putting a little bit of Vegetable oil on it (for fat) and I will sprinkle garlic powder on it to help with flies!

    I personally use Canola oil, as it is better for them. I worked up to a cup of it over a week, per feeding.

    I'm going to ask my vet and find out which oil is best, he should be going in for a teeth checking, fecal exam, and ulcer test late next week. Hopefully while he's under medicine I can finally clean his sheath thoroughly!!!

    With any oil and if it is hot where you are, keep it in the house. It will go rancid. I use corn oil.
    Works fine for my old sr horse. The oil adds fat without making them high.
    You could try some soaked beet pulp also. Nothing wrong with sr feed for any age of horse, its easy to digest . You could also increase the amount of hay ,forage he gets.

    We are thinking about easing them into a round bale, there is one problem with that. My mare colics over ANYTHING. There's no way to ease into that amount of hay again without making her colic. She also is one of those horses that will become Obese off of hay.
    Hagen needs to gain wait, yes. We are going to get some more feed tomorrow, there's already beet pulp in this feed I have.
    I'll try canola oil, I live in Texas so yes it is extremely hot. One of my friends uses molasses and some other in home ingredients and her horses are FAT FAT FAT.

    I LITERALLY just had a friend who barrel races with me message me and tell me she has half a bag of beet pulp I could have. I'll definitely throw that in, probably to both horses feed. How much is necessary though?

    I accept feedback, but I will not have someone say my horse is unhappy when I no it's false. Thank you.
