Weight Gain and Topline

What is Weight Gain and Topline?

Weight loss can occur for many reasons and once it has been identified, it should be a simple matter of feeding the horse a diet in energy and good quality pasture. The most common cause will be simply not enough total feed, including forages being fed however other causes may include ulcers, problems with teeth, hyperactivity in the paddock/fence walking or a serious health issue.

Oil is useful in weight gain diets, especially when the horse does not have a big appetite.
