Hi everyone! I just started the online university! And I am learning so much! However I need some ideas on how to help my horse gain weight, he is a 15.3 hand Tennessee walking horse,and he is getting 6 1/2 lbs of 12 percent sweet feed, 5 1/2 lbs of beet pulp(before soaking) ( I just ran out so he hasn’t had it for a few days) and more hay then he will eat daily- he eats some and then just stands in the barn all day- I have been feeding him this for over 6 months and he has gained some weight but extremely slow, he is very healthy other than his weight, his teeth are good, and I have been giving him a spoon of Epsom salts with his grain because he sweats a lot,in case he has a magnesium deficiency,he is the lowest horse in our small herd and so he is separated with a shared fence line, is there anything else I should be giving him? Do I just keep doing this until he is a good weight? What would be the best way to get him to eats more hay?
Thank you so much for any help
