Hay hay hay.
I had a horse that was pretty thin when I got him and, in addition to great pasture, I wanted him to put it on a little quicker. I fed him barley which worked well, but was a hassle to make.
I've known a lot of people feed...I think it's sugar beet pulp? I've heard good things about that. Also coconut I think? Not sure, never really needed this sort of stuff.
I don't think the main hard feed (grain) is really about weight, just vitamins and minerals.
