So about a year ago, we found out that Sandie is allergic to molasses and soy bean...basically one of these is in EVERY commerical horse feed out there, so we had to take her off of the Tribute Essential K she was on and switch her to just a rolled barley filler with some supplements. She has always been a very easy keeper...I work her about every other day and still on the tribute she was borderline chunky ;)
Well since we took her off commerical feed and she's only on barley with the following multi vitamin supplement, she has actually started to look ribby :(

She is getting 4 (rather large) flakes of hay per day (2 AM and 2 PM) plus for the middle of the day she goes out in the pasture and eats grass in the summer/fall and in spring/winter they stay in a mud lot for turnout, but it has a TON of their hay in a big hay wagon so they can munch all day long out there. This is in addition to the 4 big flakes she gets in her stall.
So several months ago I added a fat supplement to her diet, in the form of "Cool Calories" - she has been on the max dose probably 6 months now...

Her coat was starting to look dull, so I added this Omega Horseshine supplement to her diet as well, that was about 1 month ago...

Now through all this she STILL looks kinda ribby. She's not skinny, but you can see her ribs when she is running around. So she's kinda on the edge of needing a few more lbs packed on her! Anyone have any products they've used that work really well for them? Thoughts on the above products I am currently using?
