Are you in the US? I have been extremely pleased with the Tribute Feed Kalm Ultra. It is high fat. I had to switch to the Essential K ration balancer, because even my super model horses were getting too fat!
I like that DAC oil, but it is unnecessary with that Kalm Ultra.
Do you have any issues with them when you ride them?
I had a horse I was training, who was thin (previous owners didn't get his teeth done. Ever.
) But he was on Kalm N EZ. Current owner asked the feed store what they recommended for weight gain and they did the Kalm Ultra so we switched him. He was pretty laid back, and made a ton of progress in his two weeks. As soon as we switched him, he became so hyper he was miserable to ride. Super hot. Took him off a couple weeks later (unfortunately it took me that long to figure out what his problem was) and he went back to his old mellow self. The Kalm N EZ is much lower in NSC.
I had the same issue with my filly, who I switched over temporarily because of the other horse being there and couldn't separate them (long story) so she was eating his food. She normally rides amazing. But when she was eating Kalm Ultra she was a nut job. Absolutely crazy. I put her back on my normal feed and she is back to her normal self.
So while I've not had good experiences with it, I'm a firm believer in that different feeds work for different horses based on their activity level, age, etc. Just curious to know if anyone else has had issues with hotness on the Ultra.
