great for hardkeeper
My older mare has had trouble keeping weight on over the last 2 years. While she eats quite a bit of hay, she doesn't seem to get much out of it, and had an on-going problem with gas. After trying several products, I contacted the "Source" company and talked with a rep. They indicated that this product my help her gut get back to working properly. After a short few weeks, I can already see the difference in her body, & no more gas. This is an excellent product for a fair price.

I always have liked Source. The WT formula did not seem to make any difference in weight gain, however.

Horse loves this and it keeps her looking and feeling great--without excess energy. I would definately reccomend this to a friend.

Will ALWAYS feed focusWT
I have two OTTB's, age 17 and 12, that I use for children's riding lessons... both typical thoroughbreds. Definitely NOT easy keepers, and their advancing age doesn't help ;) but this stuff really does what it says! There's a dramatic change when I've taken them off of it in the past to try other probiotic/weight/digestive supplements(and I've tried a lot.) Their coats get dull and coarse, they show a lot more rib and hip bones, and they are more prone to colic so I always go back to WT. My students love to cuddle up and put their faces in their fur....they are just so soft and shiny! And it doesn't make their temperaments unmanageable for my tiny 5 year olds.
For reference: I feed Safechoice feed, add some beet pulp in the winter and WT year-round to keep them looking young.

Focus WT: A Must Have!
I started my 4 year old Saddlebred mare on this stuff about 4-5 months ago. Before, she would stress over anything and everything and lost a lot of weight at shows. After trying Focus WT I noticed she put on a little more weight each moth. It's a gradual process, but I can definitely tell a difference!

More than just a weight supplement!
The horse I rescued was so neglected he couldn't be fed grain at first so we made a soup to wean him back onto food. Being a small Standardbred, his ideal weight is only around 900 pounds. He is ulcer-prone and can't keep weight on when stressed so the first few months were quite long. Focus WT was amazing in helping to maintain his weight once we got 300 pounds on him through feed management. He's a perfect weight now but I still include Focus WT in his diet (1/4 scoop once daily) as he hasn't had an ulcer (or choke incident) since being put on it. I did take him off for a couple months when he was in great shape but he developed an ulcer and started losing weight again. So, he stays on his little amount of it and is a very happy horse! In my opinion, every horse should get the benefit of the nutrients in this mix with their normal diet. I recommend it to everyone with sensitive horses.
