I am thrilled with the number of horses we have had come in with weight issues respond! The vets are also very happy with our feeding program!

Guys she is NOT in the US so what WE feed wont' work for her

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

I've been looking at rebuild as well for my horse so if you can update on how it goes for your horse that would be awesome.
I use nograin gold or blue, depending what the produce has at the time and he gains a little weight with that and pollard.
Copra is also a good one for weight gain, but my horse doesnt like it :(
I've had some horses respond well on full fat soya bean meal as well so you might want to give that a go as well.

Try Prydes Biomare. That makes most horses put on weight. I would also add Rice Bran Oil which is usually readily available at Woolworths. On special it is $10 for 4L tho can also be $13 for 4L normal price is $20.

My OTTB gets Barley, Copra, Show torque and lucerne chaff with a good cup of RBO and ready access to OK pasture and a decent grassy round bale. He has lovely dapples tho is still a little light on
