Be careful about feeding anything with too much molasses added to it - a horse doesn't have to be fat to develop IRS - its all down to them being able to deal with sugar and how their insulin reacts
Before all these processed and complete feeds came onto the market boiled oats was a popular way to get weight and condition on show horses and it works really well. You can use crimped oats as they cook better and a Slow Cooker is ideal for the purpose. Add Flax seed oil to them and mix with a good chopped forage such as Triple Crown Safe Starch that has all the vitamins and minerals added to it
The cooking process makes the oats more digestible and they are great for horses that are prone to ucers
