Beefing up your horse??? for show season??

I have my horse on ultmiate finish by buckeye and it has a lot of fat in it to do the same as like beet bulp and stuff like that..... but its not working...hes been on it for about 3 months and I don't notice anything... can any one recomend anything that has helped your horse gain just a little weight?????? I work him every other day at least.

I've had good results with cool calories 100. Or you can use flax or oil over the grain.

Add probiotics to make sure he's using the nutrition he's getting.. and maybe increase his feed some to compensate for what he's working off??

More hay. Works like a charm If you can't feed more hay, then alfalfa pellets work well. 1-2 scoops a day using a 3qt feed scoop.

I agree with luvs2ride. Alfalfa will add a bit more protien to his diet and will help him bulk up on muscle instead of just getting fat. Especially if you are working him.

What kind of horse? Some horses are naturally more lean built than others.

I also tried the Ultimate Finish & didn't get results. I switched to Omega HorseShine (which you can pick up at Fleet Farm) and saw great results in a matter of weeks. It gives the horses a shiny coat, makes their mane & tail grow, gives them strong hooves and plumps them up just enough. Feed as much hay along with it as you can.
