Didn't Help My Guy
I had my senior APHA gelding on TC Rice Bran Oil Plus and he was in great condition. I dropped the oil to see if he'd maintain his weight but it began to dip again, so I decided to give a solid (non-liquid) weight gain supplement a try. The ingredient profile in this looked like it contained everything I could ask for and more, but after going through two buckets over 2 1/2 months and giving him the maximum dose, I'm seeing absolutely no weight gain. His coat looks great but he's on Omega Horseshine so hard to know how much this actually contributed to coat condition. Sadly this did not work for us.

easy weight gain w/out rice bran!
I recently put my draftx on this and have seen weight gain in just the first bucket (FYI- he gets 2 scps 2x day due to his over 1500lb weight). I had to remove rice bran from his diet due to allergies & switched to cool calories where he actually lost weight even after more than doubling the dosage! Ultra-Elite weight has put some of the weight back on .. and best of all it's one of the few weight gain supplements that doesn't have Rice bran in it!

Works like a charm
I have a 30+y/o mare who lost alot of weight when I had to take her off pasture. I tried uping the grain and adding beet pulp but it just wasn't doing the trick. I started using this and within a few weeks I could see improvement. At first she didn't care of it but after 2-3 feeding she's licking her bowl clean.

I basically inherited this 32ish y/o mare that stays with my gelding a few years ago. I am not REAL familiar with caring for senior horse, but I wouldn’t give her up for the world.
Well this summer they had to be taken off of the grass due to hoof issues and her weight went down quick. I tried adding more grain and beet pulp to her feedings with no real progress, so I opted try a supplement with her for 1st time. When I got the smartpaks I added them to her food as I’ve never seen her as a picky eater. Well she ate the first few feedings SO slow I really thought she was going to start refusing it. Now after our first month on it she LICKS her bowl clean. I think it was a texture thing. Her coat is SO much softer and I can defiantly see some real progress in her weight!!

I tried this on my gelding that needed to gain weight. Although it is A LOT of supplement he ate most of it. I had him on this product for over a month, I think he lost more weight! Then I tried Triple Crown Rice Bran Oil and what a difference in a matter of days! Within a week I noticed he gained some weight and his coat was so soft and shiny.

keeps an old horse (30 yo) filled out
one of the older horse at the barn needs a weight building supplement. I chose this one b/c it had prebiotics; which I thought would be a good thing to add to the diet of a horse with very limited hay-chewing capacities.
