    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps them gain weight I am very happy with this product. My horses love it and it seems to do its job of adding additional pounds on my horses that need the extra weight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puts Weight On Very good product for putting weight on. There was a noticable difference within a few weeks. But, my mare got picky after awhile and picked her grain out leaving the supplement behind. So, you may need to add some honey or molasses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weight without bloating I love this supplement, its a supplement that you can see gratifying results with in just a couple days. Ive used it on hard keepers, horses coming out of neglectful situations that needed weight put on and horses in high intensity training that are having trouble keeping weight on. Ive never had a horse refuse to eat it, and Ive never fed it to a horse that it didn't have results on. Ive found you get a better distribution of weight, as opposed to feeding a large amount of grain and getting a slumpy fat gut. Ive also noticed an improvement in coat conditions and energy levels. For the price, this is a great supplement, A long time favorite!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Weight Building Supplement I have been using this supplement on/off on my TB mare for the last 2 years - she was very underweight when I got her and I gave her 2 scoops/day for over a year to help her gain 200+ pounds. Now I still give her one scoop/day to maintain her weight. As a bonus, it gives her coat a great shine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results In Just 1 Month My mare is a very hard keeper, when I got her she was very skinny. I put her on this stuff and It has worked wonders. It made her coat very shiny and I am noticing a much better topline and her ribs out filling out nicely. No potbelly at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I have been using this product for 3 weeks on my new horse. He was about 200lbs under weight and being a Tb was a challenge. He has gained 75lbs in 3 weeks. His coat is so shiny and he looks and feels better. He will never be without this supplament. Love it. He is a picky eater as well and gobbles it right up. Smells great too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supplement My horse needed to gain some weight. Increasing the food some didn't help enough. The weight builder is a quality product, not just a bulk builder. Even when not ridden all winter, his body condition still looks like a horse with light work. His mass looks good and so does his coat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weight Builder WOW I have a 15+ year old Arab mix that I purchased for my 12 y/o daughter in December. He came from a rescue farm and while generally healthy was still very underweight. I board him at the rescue facility and have worked closely with the owner on his feed. After reading some of the reviews I figured I had nothing to lose and ordered my first bucket of Weight Builder. We weighed my horse and 2 other the day we started them and within the first 2 weeks saw wonderful results. We're into our second bucket and I had to buy a larger girth for my daughters horse! When our vet came to pull coggins on some of the other horses on the farm she almost pulled Lil Red (she'd done his prior to starting WB) when I told her it was Lil Red she was thrilled with how great he looked. She asked me if she could take pictures for her website as she had pictures of him when he first arrived at the farm. I highly recommend Weight Builder and my vet will be recommending to her clients too!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Results This products works amazing! It helped put the weight right back on my gelding after the winter. I have used this product previously on different horses and my only complaint is the palatability. Some horses won't eat it, or pick through it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a very fussy 36 year old who is really tough to keep weight on and refuses to eat his food if I try to add any supplements. He likes his weight builder and it helps to keep him in fantastic body condition.

SUPER HARD! well i had tried everything from getting her teeth checked, worming her for frequently(as suggested by vet) and even switching her to senior feed for more calories (shes only 5) Well a friend suggested this and literally in 2 weeks i could see a HUGE difference!! She is keeping the weight on and got it on quickly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds & Maintains Weight I've used this and the SmarkFlex Senior supplement with excellent results. Most think my 21-year-old thoroughbred is 10 years younger. She has lots of energy, good weight, coat and muscle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fattening my Skinny, Picky TB Mare My thoroughbred mare is VERY hard to put weight on. She's healthy, and I maintain her teeth, worm her, regular vet checks, etc., but she has a hot temperament and just stays very lean--I even just got a comment on a recent dressage test that she was too skinny!I didn't know what else I could do to put weight on her. She has good quality, free choice hay, and I feed her a vet recommended grain/supplement regimen. So I tried this product a month ago at my trainer's suggestion and voila! I noticed the difference after two weeks--no kidding! My mare also has a very picky palate, so I added this product slowly to her grain, but she readily eats it. I guarantee I will not get that skinny comment on a test again with this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glossy Coats A great choice for stunning summer coats that radiate in the sunlight. My horse's summer is so glossy that it literally shimmers. I use this product in combination with Senior Feed to up the caloric intake in a >>SLOW<< eater who spends a portion of his day in turnout with faster eaters. He loves it and begs for it every day. I love it because he actually keeps weight on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from firt time user I have only been using it for about 2 weeks. The 21 yr. old mare seems to be gaining. She has cushings and I am having a time to build up her lost weight. I am sure this will help with her weight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product We first purchased this product for my daughters yearling. It worked well keeping weight on him in between growing spells. We also started using it for one of our geldings that has trouble keeping weight on. We are very pleased with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New to this product, but happy with it I've read many very positive reviews about this product and decided to try it on my own horse. At first she wasn't happy about it, but then I gave her a little less, mixed in very well with her grain, and now she eats it all! I'm pleased, as she's a picky eater!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Halter and All-Around Horses I have been using this product on my All-around show horse for two years, and it works great! Not only does it keep her weight and muscle tone in shape for halter, it also keeps her in good shape for her all around classes when used along side with regular training.
