Equiniphile, there have been some studies done that suggest feeding additional oil is counter productive. I never had much luck with feeding extra oil, but of course my experiences are anecdotal at best.

Really? Interesting, I'll have to look into that. I used it with my TBs when they came off the track with a lot of success.

Not saying it doesn't work with some horses, but I honestly found it didn't help when I was trying to build weight on several of mine.

I have a 27 y/o who gets beet pulp and Trotter, and I've managed to keep his weight up with just that and good, plentiful hay.

The nearest dealer of blueseal feeds is over 300 miles from where I live! Sad day! Any other suggestions? I had him on oil before and it didn't do much for his weight just shined up his coat

Well, poop!

What about Triple Crown? They have some decent feeds, but you have to make sure to get one that isn't drowned in molasses.

I don't know where you are, but if you look for legume and not grain based feeds, you're on the right track.

Oil and beet pulp worked with mine. He was very thin.
