How is this for supplements?

My horse is very underweight. I want to get him started on these supplements

AM: -2kg of Lifeline Equical pellets

PM: -2kg of Lifeline Equical pellets
-1 and 1/2 cup beatpulp (Unsoaked)
-1/2 cup canola oil

What do you guys think? Should I be feeding the majority of the supplements in the morning instead or does it really matter?

Would it be too much if I gave him extra beat pulp after I ride him as well to restore his muscles?

I am not even sure what 2 kg of the pellets looks like!

Beet pulp is great at adding weight to a skinny horse, as is the oil. One thing I'd like to add is soak the pellets to avoid choke. I don't know much about the lifeline pellets, but 2 kg is about 4.4 lbs

I'm not familiar with Lifeline Equical, but 4kg a day is quite a bit. Be sure to work up to that amount slowly, and if you can, consider breaking it up into 3 or more feedings per day.

You also don't mention hay or pasture- forage is the basis of a horse's diet and when you have a horse that needs weight, the best first thing you should do is bump them up to 24/7 free choice hay/pasture. If feeding hay, putting the hay into a small hole hay net will help keep the horse from wasting it and slow down his consumption.
