Purchase: I paid about $15.49 through horse.com for a 37-day supply. I own a 23 year old retired paint gelding that has been a hard keeper since I got him 6 1/2 years ago. He is on a regular deworming program and has what is left of his teeth floated regularly. Because he can no longer chew hay he is on a full ration of Nutrena senior complete feed twice daily. I thought I would add this without changing his diet in any other way to see if it helped him to gain weight and keep it on.
Likes: It is inexpensive and very palatable. Although I need to feed a lot of it, he doesn't mind the taste at all. They also offer a money-back guarantee if it doesn't work. I haven't tried the guarantee, so I hope they're being honest about it.
Dislikes: I had him on it for a month (37 days) and saw no improvement in his weight. Because the weather stayed relatively consistent and he was not given any additional food or any less food, I feel it was a fair assessment for that particular horse. Generally I prefer to give supplements 2-6 months to work, but I felt that because this was a weight gain formula it should have started working quicker than hoof or joint supplements.
Quality: This supplement is very palatable and comes in a coarse powder form. My horse ate it and never left any.
Summary: I did not feel that this product did anything to benefit my particular horse. I have a feeling it might work better on younger horses who can chew better, and I like that it was palatable. I probably should have given it a few more months to work, but I felt that the cost of it was not worth it when corn oil is still less expensive (for now, anyhow) and I know it works (plus it helps reduce the risk of colic!). Therefore, I am switching back to corn oil. Because I only tried it on one of my horses, I don't feel like I have a great grasp on how well it will work for anyone else's horse, but maybe if there are enough other people who review it, you can get a better idea.
