    I fostered a 25 year old underweight mare before, and I was told to feed her "Fat and Fiber" grain that you could get at TSC. I worked pretty well.
    I have never tried this but I heard that you should mix half a cup of vegtable oil in to their feed. Also beet pulp is good for putting weight on horses.
    Glad she got out of there.
    Good Luck!

    Sorry I did not see that some of that was already said.
    And there is a HUGE differecne, her ribs and spine don't stick ou like before.

    She looks a lot better and I'd say she is gaining at around the right rate, you don't want it going on to fast. Whatever you are doing it's working

    Sugar is looking AMAZING....will post a new pic tomorrow. Jumped on her bareback tonight, the first time I have been on her since she's been home, and rode maybe 15-20 minutes around the house. She was tenderfooted when we crossed the gravel drive (she is barefoot), but was a complete doll. I will never understand why so many people turn their noses up at "old" horses.....I would have a whole pasture full if I could afford it.
