Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Healthy Weight is supportive in many ways including skin, coat, gastric, and muscle health. For horses that need to gain weight, Healthy Weight provides calories in addition to forage. It is made from flax oil, a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which makes it a healthy alternative to corn oil. The 1-gallon Healthy Weight now comes in an easy tip-to-measure container made from a material that protects the formula from degradation due to UV light. Administration of the 5-gallon Healthy Weight oil is easier with the Healthy Weight Pump, sold separately.
When trying to put weight on your horse, it’s important to provide as close to a natural diet as possible. Also evaluate if the horse needs more digestible energy, calories, or if the horse is not properly utilizing the feed provided. Studies have shown when providing a balanced diet high in omega-3 fatty acids, the horse will actually utilize feed better. There are healthier alternatives to grain for weight gain, such as providing energy-dense flax oil, instead of adding more concentrates.
