Anyone know about Cool Calories 100?

I am trying to put some weight on my TB and looking for suggestions. He gets really hot on grain or alfalfa so right now he gets lots of good quality hay, 3-4# beet pulp and two big scoops of purina equine senior. I have had Cool Cals suggested to me by a few people and was wondering what everyone on here has experienced with this, especially with a TB? I have only had him 2 months so I don't know how he winters and want to make sure he's nice and plump heading in. I ride about 3-4 times a week with pretty light work and am hoping to keep up with it this winter. Thanks!

I kept my TB in good weight this way.. I fed a good 12% feed with no less than 5% fat mixed with steamed rolled oats. The feed has probiotics included.

When not on pasture he was standing in Bermuda hay. In the winter I'd add some alfalfa pellets to his feed, but not much.

He stayed in great shape with this. Hope I've helped! Good luck!

I have used Cool Calories and it worked really well for my horse.

At the endurance barn I work at, they feed cool cals to there horses. Cool cals is a fat, and with endurance horses the more fat the better. So it would definantly help put weight on your horse. These are arabians and it doesnt seem to make them hot at all. And the owner when she rescued a horse that's what she used to put weight on him was cool cals, and it helped alot!

Cool calories didn't work for my TB, but then little does. I've had some success with both Amplify and Empower. Cool calories is a powder that smells like bubble gum. You have to wet it a little so it sticks to the food.

For my TB, weight came down to more hay. When he was switched from just morning and night hay to 3x daily, that's when he started gaining.

Thanks for the replies, I decided to give it a try but he is steadily gaining on lots of grass hay, 3 # of beet pulp, and two scoops of senior. Hopefully the cool cals will give him just the bump he needs going in to winter.

If cool cals doesnt work then you might try weight builder....this is what the bucket looks like:

It works wonders on my little appendix and a friend I knew used it to help maintain muscle on her show horses.
