    Effects of Supplements last?

    I was wondering if I gave my horse a muscle supplement, would he keep the muscle he got while on that supplement, or would it begin to deplete after discontinuing use. (my horse doesn't put on muscle and he would have better endurance and look nicer) I really don't want to have to keep him on supplements. So could I give him it for just a month and stop? I give him 2 scoops of grain and a bale of hay. Thanks!!

    Work builds muscle along with the proper feed program. Depending which muscle builder you want some are crap and some are just amino acids. But no supplement will do anything without the proper exercise program. It would be better to just feed a balanced ration.

    He does get regular exercise and has balanced feed, he just does not have much capability to build muscle.

    What size scoops? Of what feed ? And what hay ? What kinda grass ? You will usually be better off buying decent feed, then buying cheap feed then adding supplements. All depends on the feed and workload. "Regular" doesnt mean enough or the right type. What do you want your horse to do ? Does he do it ? Is he too weak for his job or you just want him to look a certain way ? Horses given proper nutrition will muscle in to what ever work they are asked. If a muscle "look" is caused simply by chemicals, I would assume they will fade when you remove said chemicals.
