I was wondering if I put my skinny quarter horse on winstrol for a few weeks if it would help him gain weight? Can it hurt him? If I can give it to him how much should I give and for how long? I want to make sure its safe for him before I give him him anything

What are you feeding him now? Why do you think he's underweight? Sometimes a simple diet change can significantly help a weight issue.

I'm feeding him 6 quarts of alfaco 10% its has 10% protien and 8% fat and I give him 4oz of farnam weight builder. He's stays in the pasture 24/7. I just rescued him about 2 months ago he was very poor. I had him checked out by my vet he floated his teeth and tube wormed him. That was 2 days after I got him. I would like to him gain at least 50#. I seen him about 18 months ago and was big and very healthy. Then they let him loose way to much weight. So I bought him and brought him home he is a great horse for my 6 year old daughter

If you are going to give Winstrol, please be very careful with your daughter. Winstrol makes for some pretty nasty attitude changes.

Are you feeding any forage (hay) in addition to the pasture? That, alone, may help more than adding the Winstrol. The problem with weight is it takes a lot longer to gain than to lose - and slow and steady gain is better than a quick fix. I would say add some good quality hay, alfalfa pellet and beet pulp before I stated mucking about with something like Winstrol.
