Hi all, I am out in California and have never had issues keeping weight on a horse. I have an appendix gelding that is 4 and lost a bit of weight this winter. I am looking for a product to supplement and not make him hot. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Recently wormed, feeding the same hay. Please be positive here! Thanks!

The only thing that put weight over my horse' stop has been switching to Omni alfalfa/Oat/flaxseed cubes, grass hay and Cur Ost Total. I spent several years trying different products with only limited success until I started the Total

 I'd try renew gold and adding alfalfa......or alfalfa pellets if you can't get bales.

"more" or "better" 
refer to the thread regarding putting weight on a 14 year old that's been going on the last couple of days. 
You're info is vague so read that and see if there is something there that can help you.  Good luck!

In reply to your post, the reason I had asked separately was because he is a younger horse. I am not sure what more I could post. I believe he is burning more calories staying warm this winter and I don't need to put a ton of weight on him. Thank you though, the other thread was helpful if I need to get my older horses going.

Thank you all for your info and input! I really appreciate it. I am going to look into a few of these ideas. You have been a great help!

Thank you for being patient with the "newbie" on this thread.

How much of the renew gold do you feed? I am assuming the bag has weights and measurements etc. Just curious if it is similar to feeding Nutrena youth or comparable. I am interested in trying this product. We have a 90% alfalfa 10% orchard grass mix we are feeding, so I would rather not feed any additional alfalfa pellets. What are your thoughts on other additions such as oats/rolled corn?

Hello fellow Californian. We can't get omnis cubes out here darn it!!!! I would love to have them. Maybe some day. Nothing will put weight on and a shine than stabilized rice bran!! Where are you located? I'm in Southern California. If you can get integrity rice bran nuggets they have a 1 year shelf life and are stabilized and fortified. My horses love it!

Darn it! haha. We are in Northern Ca. And by northern, I mean an hour south of Oregon. Thank you for the info. Have you tried requesting it from a tractor supply store or your feed store? Is it just not something made in our neck of the woods? I have been contemplating the rice bran pellets as well. Thank you for the info! Let me know about the Omnis cubes! I would like to try and get them as well.

I really believe it was the cur Ost products that helped the most. They got his digestive system back on shape so he can fully utilize his feed's nutrients.

Which cur ost did you use? I was on their website and saw quite a few options. Or (as I am learning from experience on this thread) is there another post specifically for the cur ost?

He was on Stomach and Adapt for 2 months and now he is on the Total and when I haul anywhere I will give him his Stomach and Adapt. I emailed De. Schell (this was before his forum was up) and this is what he recommended for him. I highly recommend to email or ho on secondvet.com to talk to Dr. Schell about your horse's specific problems before buying if you decide to try Cur Ost.

Alfalfa & rice bran are the first things I try as most that I've put them on thrive on it. Then I have had some that won't touch alfalfa and will only eat beet pulp -- I have had a lot of horses get hot on beet pulp. Another option I use is Chaffhaye. It does seem to help them utilize their feed better.

I would try the renew gold. Start out with 1 lb a day. Split into 2 feedings. I would also try Oxymax. It helps the stomach,lungs and joints. You won't need more than one supplement. Jen Berry is a rep on here. She is great to work with and can answer any questions. I tried the Curost and my horse still had ulcers, and when I had her injected, she was dry. Oxymax will last 60 days and you only need one supplement. And its 166 for 60 days, where Curost is 132 for a month and you have to buy more than 1 product .

May I ask what you are feeding and amount.. That may help to factor in what he needs or are you strictly looking for a supplement?
