I have had incredible weight building success with feeding Purina Senior feed to young horses (not sure its available in the UK). Word of caution here, when I got my mare as a young filly she was very underweight, so I immediatley wormed her, got her comfy, and I laid the feed to her (alfalfa, beet pulp, flax oil, and senior) not realizing she had a seriouse weight problem (breaths in calories)- she gained all right, and I had a heck of a time stopping the "gain". If I had known I would have approached it differently. The previouse owner had to have starved her, so sad.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
