Ok, so my horse is in moderate to heavy work, he's a 6 yr old quarter horse reiner. I ride him on average five times a week moderately hard. He's so fit, I'd have to ride him very very hard to get a good sweat on him
He's in perfect health. No digestive issues that I have ever known of.
Daily he currently gets free choice hay, his Hoffmans ration @ 3lbs per day, plus
Life Line equi-cal pellets @ 3kg per day (it's less than recommended as I don't want to feed the whole volume all at once (I'm only at the barn once a day) , so I've been watching to see if it will add some bulk....it's a cool energy feed) soooooo I've been thinking, rather than feed him such a huge amount of equi-cal every day (according to bag directions, he's supposed to get 5kgper day) I was wondering about adding oil to help increase his weight. He's in 'showing' condition now.....I don't want to show him right now, I'd rather he had a little more bulk to carry through for the next few months before showing.
I'm not big into complicated feeding routines, I'd rather keep it simple.
What type of oil is the most effective and how much daily for an 1100-1200lb horse?
