Stabilized rice bran pellets provide a lot of fat.

Ultium in place of the Strategy

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I just re-read the question. A good high fat feed is Blue Seal Performance LS. It's low starch and among the highest fat you can get in an extruded pellet form, 12%.

Super-Gain is good too. When I used to do horse rescue years ago, we put rescued horses on this (And I mean the walking skeleton kind of horses we got in). It's amazing stuff.

I just add a little corn oil or cracked corn with the strategy. works great.
