My Horses Wont Gain Weight

Jasper and delilah wont gain weight. Jasper is 16 and Delilah is 18, and Delilah needs her teeth done. But they wont gain weight. What is the best thing to give them? Is corn oil good? Or Weight builder or Platform? Or Dumor Rice Bran Oil or Dumor Weight Booster, Horse Supplement? What is the Best???

Please don't use that feed find something higher in nutrition lower in NSC and designed to be fed at lower amounts

If you give me your zip code I can help you...

Re: My Horses Wont Gain Weight

We have a 30 year old gelding that we needed to put a lot of weight on when we got him.

He is on Buckeye Senior, a senior powder, beet pulp, and alfalfa pellets. We soak this into a mash 3 times a day for him. He also gets 1/2 cup of Ultimate Finish from Buckeye 3 times a day. That is really good for adding weight and helps with coat, etc. You can feed quite a bit more but we find this is enough.

I don't want them on anything higher than 10% protien. It makes jasper high. I live in south eastern ct. I don't feel comfortable giving my zip code on the internet. Between salem, norwich, and wilimantic. I am going to feed Vintage Victory, but I was at tsc and just grabed it

THe protien DOES NOT make them hyper the sugars and starches do ... think of a kid all pumped up on candy that is your horse on sweet feed... alot of times the higher protien sweet feeds have more corn and less fillers which is why it makes horses hyper

Look for a fiber based feed ...

What I will do is find the dealers in your state and list them with the best feed for your money

Do you have a problem adding stuff to the feeds to up the calories?? Like beet pulp, alfalfa pellets/cubes, rice bran or something along those lines
