Worried About Founder With My Halter Horse


“I am feeding your Super Weight Gain and really love the results I am getting but have a question. I live in Yuma, Az. It has been very hot here. I am concerned about founder with this supplement as it is so high in protein and fat content. I am also feeding alfalfa hay and senior horse pellets. I am feeding a senior mare that I am trying to get back into halter shape. Our hay is not early cutting. So….am I O.K. to continue to feed this supplement or should I be switching to something else? Thank you.”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
You are perfectly fine to continue feeding the Super Weight Gain because of the low dose. I’m glad to hear you are pleased with the results. It is an amazing product, and should really help to get your mare back into halter shape.
