Has anybody feed rice bran?

I have started feeding rice bran to my senior horses and nursing mares.
Has anybody had any experience with it?
I have the powdered kind and mix it with their regular feed.
I am starting to see results after only 1 week.
I am hoping to only have to buy one kind of pellets and just mix rice bran with those that need a higher protien/fat content. Shalom

I feed it to mine in the winter. I feed powdered with their pellets and oil and my horses look fabulous all winter. Economical tasty and easy to procure. I use about 2 cups per horse per feeding. I pay $10 a bag for it.

I fed it this spring when my 3 year old wasn't holding the weight I like. Took him a bit to acquire a taste for it and I had to water it down, but once he started eating it the results were pretty quick.

I mix the pellets in with my mares grain. It definitely makes a difference when she needs more weight.

By the way, it makes the softest shiniest coats. In the summer we feed barley instead unless we are showing heavy then they get both.

I picked up some oil at a local shop to help everyone put on weight. So far no noticeable improvement but they are not getting it every day.

I fed Rice bran to my horse, and it really helped him put on weight. I used warm water, and made it into a kind of mush. He loved it!

I do not feed it for a weight gain reason I use it more as a sand clear. Works well for that. Changes things up a bit in that department.
