I am looking to put my gelding on a weight gainer, but am not sure which one to go with.
The two I am stuck between is:
Animed Weight Up - Animed Weight-Up - Horse.com
Source Focus WT - Source Focus WT - Horse.com
Anybody have any opinions on these two products and know which one might be better?
I will add that currently my horse is on free choice grass hay, 2 flakes of alfalfa and 5lbs of senior grain per day. It is split into two feedings. So one flake of alfalfa and 2.5lbs of grain in the morning and then again at night. He always has hay in front of him.
His weight is not bad, but I did recently take him off of beet pulp simply because he doesn't like the taste of it and it was a struggle to get him to even eat it. He also will not eat rice bran. So I am thinking a weight builder might be a good thing to try to add some extra calories.
His ribs are just barely visible and I know he has dropped a little bit of weight, but not much and he isn't skinny by any means. But I am going to start riding him probably 3-5 times a week beginning in January so I want to make sure he has the extra calories he needs to keep his weight despite being worked. Cause right now he is only worked like once a week or so.
This is from a couple of days ago:
