If you are worming every month, you are wasting money and likely creating super bugs resistant to the chemicals you are exposing them to. The old routine de-worming schedule has become less popular with professionals/veterinarians/etc .

I'm all for adding more hay(we feed primarily bermuda). As for feed, I've had good luck with Triple Crown Low Starch. I like it because it doesn't have alfalfa in it like alot of other feeds.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

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.
