When I had my harder keeper I fed him Nutrena's Empower Boost, which has pre and probiotics and rice bran, high fat content. He loved it. I fed it to him 2X a day and put him with a big round bale. He did really well.

My mare now eats Manna Pro Opti-zyme and she loves it.

I am quite fond of water kefir and kombucha tea, both of which I make myself. There is plenty of info on how to do this on the internet. When I have extra "grains" which are rich in probiotics I'll give a tbsp. Or so in each horse's feed. The "grains" multiply so one can keep it on going. The KT is full of probiotics also. It uses a SCOBY which is often referred to as a mushroom, which it's not, and looks like a piece of wet rawhide when floating in the jar. KT takes longer to brew, at least several weeks.

The horse body worker/herbalist I have used recommends yougurt around 50-100grams per day. Must be the natural pot set stuff, works well for ulcers as the dairy soothes the gut pain too.

I have not used it myself however the big warmblood next door has vastly improved in body and mind in the last 6weeks being on it
