There is also wheat bran out there, but I don't know a lot about that...peggysue?

The rice bran would be easier to feed, because it does not have to be soaked.
Sweet-thanks. Quite a few of my local stores carry the Max e Glo and I could ask if they just carry straight rice bran as well.

It's been an incredibly stressful day at work-it feels good to be getting a handle on this. What would I do without this forum?

Wheat bran does not have fat level that rice bran does it actually has been proven somewhere I would have to HUNT for it again ..

I had great luck with the Max E Glo on teh one that would eat it and one that stuck her nose up at it

The fat level on wheat bran is 5%
The fat level on rice bran is normally 20% or higher depending on which company

Great. The feed store I'm going to tonight carries his regular feed plus the Max E Glo, so I'm going to pick that up.

*fingers crossed* I will make beet pulp work for my schedule if I have to (obviously his health is a priority) but I'm hoping the addition of rice bran will pack on those lbs.

Thanks you both! We do have a scale in the tack room.

How much should I start with tonight to ease him in? 5. Lbs? (I'll bring a measuring cup out

1/2lb would be fine maybe a little less 1/4 lb
