    Another way to put weight on a hard keeper is corn oil. It's not only high in calories but has been proven to help prevent ulcers. You can feed up to a total of 2 cups a day.

    Sandman does have hay (grass roundbales). But all this food is just keeping him at a summer weight.I don't know if I should add something else or just switch to beetpulp, or just keep waiting?

    Rice bran or Beet pulp can both be beneficial to your horse. Figure out what your horse's diet requires and which one is a better addition to your horse's regimen. Flax seed has a higher energy density per lb than both.. Vegetable Oil has 4 times the energy density per lb then those options and the highest percentage of Lysine (better digestion). Sounds like your horse has enough fiber in its diet.. maybe an oil is the way to go?

    Actually most feeds are loaded with vitamins and minerals because feed company's don't want to get sued. The only supplements that would be beneficial to your horse is a fat supplement, MAYBE a joint supplement (although not adequately tested or proven) or MAYBE a vitamin supplement if your horse has a severe deficiency. Supplements are also not regulated so you don't even know what you're really getting.. vitamins also deteriorate over a rather short amount of time.

    Im afraid I have to disagree here. Most if not all feeds are not complete with everything a horse needs in his diet. I've noticed the difference between my horses being fed without a supplement and with and as my nana used to say 'the proof is in the pudding' :)

    I prefer rice bran it works and its quick and easy w/ no mess! Beet pulp works to but you need to soak it and it can make a mess!
