    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.

    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.
