Question ProAdd Ultimate

Has anybody had any experience with this stuff?

ProAdd Ultimate

Daughter's friend has an Oldenberg gelding that she is using for dressage. She'd been having a terrible time keeping weight on him - she put him on Purina Strategy - and he was able to keep the weight on, but got very difficult to handle - really hot headed.

She switched him to this stuff a month ago, and he's a different horse. She's added oats to his diet because he's working fairly hard, but he's not hot headed anymore and much easier to work with. He's also not losing weight.

She recommended daughter try it on her impossible paso fino to see if that helps any. The paso isn't being fed a hot feed - it's just 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of alfalfa pellets, 2 pounds of beet pulp and flax meal. However, we are thinking that although she's not getting much in the way of alfalfa, it may still be a problem for her.

The hay is a decent quality prairie hay, fed free choice. It's mostly native grasses (big and little blue stem and the like) and some bermuda grass (not much of that in the field anymore, though).

She's very hot natured under the best of circumstances - she is incredibly spooky - so much so that she can't be ridden. Don't know if this stuff will help or not, but if anyone else has had any experience with this, I'd like some input...

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)

LOVE that it has chelated minerals! Would love to see a complete ingredient list, but without seeing one, it still seems like this formula looks like it could be really really good. The tryptophan and balanced ration of vitamins and bio available minerals (especially magnesium) should go a long way to calm her down. Tryptophan is really calming (Tryptophan also runs high in Turkey - that's where the post-Thanksgiving food coma comes from), as well as magnesium which is great for nerves and anxiety.

I feel certain you will see a benefit from the ProAdd - if she's still too hot, maybe try a natural calming supplement that gives her an additional boost of magnesium. I have tried just about every calming supplement out there (Perfect Prep, Quiesscence, SmartCalm) but none are better than Dynamite's Easy Boy. (or in your case, it should be called Easy Girl! ;)

Good luck - hope to hear how it goes.
