Triple Crown Safe Starch® Forage Specially selected for low NSC levels and the product is molasses and grain free. I gave my hard keeper a 5 gallon bucket full each night during the day she got 2 quarts of senior and 2 quarts of sport. The most important thing is the quality of the hay your are feeding. I recommend a timothy mix second cut. My horse gets a bale of hay a day to free feed off. She fattened right up. You can feed them grain but without the right hay it’s pointless. I would also recommend a fecal sample to see what you are worming for before you risk upsetting a hard keepers stomach. With him being that thin if you are going to worm I recommend keeping a tube of probiotic on standby encase he looks colicky after worming. Also if all else fails a scope for ulcers may be necessary.
