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.
