As far as amount - it depends on why the horse needs weight. Illness recovery? Lack of care? Age?
Start low and work up. You can feed a pound of Empower a day but work up to it. You can then back it down to 1/4 pound daily as a supplement.
Safe Choice - we've never fed more than 10 pounds a day. If they need that much, we divide the feedings into 3. When trying to put weight on a horse, several smaller feedings are better than one or two large ones. Gives the body a chance to digest properly.
Make sure they are wormed correctly, have free choice salt, water and quality hay.
