For horses that can't keep weight on and for healthy skin and coat condition. Provides slow burning calories to increase energy, without making the horse "hot" and unthrifty, and with less risk than feeding grain. A rich source of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Replenishes 7 beneficial direct-fed microbial cultures.

Hard Keeper Solution is designed to help horses gain and maintain weight and develop beautiful skin and coat. Feeding extra grain to boost calories can lead to digestive upset and other hazards, and may not help the horse achieve and maintain optimum weight. Instead, Hard Keeper Solution feeds slow-burning calories in the form of easily digested fats, to significantly increase energy intake without making the horse “hot” or unthrifty. Hard Keeper also supplies the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are so important for skin and coat condition. It's the perfect solutionfor show horses, and for any horse that needs help with weight maintenance or coat condition.
