i think it exists here, but its imported, and will break my bank account too much to start with that. I've looked into it but its something id rather leave as a last resort. of course if its necessary i will do it, but another cheaper way would be very nice lol. Its also not something people regularly use here, apart from maybe at sporthorse breeders (for the mares) and professional riders. They dont seem to have a lot of variants either, ive just found a basic one, a broodmare one, a foal one and one for racehorses. The basic one is for horses in 'light work' and 'young horses that are just starting training' so it doesnt really sound like it would help that much with weight gain on a 'senior' horse (he's 19, not really senior but getting up there) that gets ridden daily and jumps twice a week (low jumps, but still)We are at a bit of a disadvantage. We are a bit spoiled. We have the ability to feed pre-bagged feeds up here. They are all made up and balanced with protein/fat and vitamin/mineral ratios clearly marked for us. Do you have something similar to that or do you feed raw materials?
Corn is typically thought to be a very hot feed with a high NSC ratio.
@cbar ill look into beet pulp! no idea if thats used to feed horses here or if you can even get it. I'll try to find out whats it called in spanish first
