    LOVE it! Always keep it stocked up and use it on all show horses :). Awesome stuff!

    Sarah can we get it out here at the rural store??
    Just happens that I had a sick horse at Belvoir last night & they said to put him on it. I want some now of course & don't want to have to wait til I can get to Northam:eek:
    Would Bob & Liz have some? And not at twice the price:mad:

    it shouldnt be too expensive, we pay $135 for a 20L drum from oakford stockfeeds, so u can compare prices :)

    Thanks bubblez, that sounds a lot cheaper than getting it in 2L cans.
    I shall have to wait til I can get to Perth though as I tried both possible places out here and I can't get it.

    Another question,
    We have a very fat clydie cross boy who gets very itchy with the fine dust out here and I think the oil may help him with that. But....will it cause further weight gain?? We have him on a diet as he is too fat and can't risk making it worse.

    Are there other things that can help nourish his skin without the extra weight gain?? Maybe flax seeds?

    Try saddleworld ;) www.saddleworldmaddington.com.au I buy from them. If its not on their website (but I'm pretty sure it is) then just e-mail them and their usually too happy to help!!!

    I buy just the two litres at the moment but I have also bought the bigger drums which is better value!

    Who was at Belvoir? Is everything ok?

    Babe - I rode yesterday, and Jed also seemed more laid back, and very cruisey but with oomph. Will see how we go tomorrow :) I'm loving it - deffinately going to get a 20L drum of it :D

    Oh thanks Cheeki...I have been feelign the same thing with my boy...I have ben wondering all night why he has been so nice and quiet hahahha
    Have noticed a small coat change,...just feels more silky but that could be my imagination! How much are you feeding of it?

    I thought I was seeing things too LOL!
    Jed is deffinately gaining weight .. i'm never running out LOL

    I think his coat is deffinately feeling softer, and a bit shinier (I wasn't sure if it was because he was being lightly rugged, but I let him nude the other night and was still shiny the next day!).

    I'm up to about 1/2 cup - 1/3 cup. I was suggested to feed 1cup for weight gain, and then cut down to 1/2 cup once he's gained the weight.
    How much are you feeding? :)

    I've only got a little 2L tub of it .. totally getting a 20L :)

    Hmm Im feeding a bit over 150mil...might up it now...as he is used to it in his feed...what is a cup in mils I wonder?
    Must say Im a bit impressed so far.:)
    I agree the 20litre sounds more cost economical

    240 ml I believe is one cup (altho someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

    Jed is almost at a full cup - and I'm feeling the oomph in todays ride! LOL Deffinately hot, but oomph! LOL

    Increase from 0-250ml over 14 days- no faster ;)

    Awesome Cheeki....oomph without hot is good! My boy's day off today and he was hooning in the paddock lol...

    Pso..have you fed EG?

    Have increased his nightly dose to 100mil...will give 80 mil in the morning:)

    nope- out of my budget :)

    but most oils have the same energy levels- and you shouldnt increase them too fast (takes the body a while to adjust to processing oil- so if you add too much too soon its just going on the paddocks ;))
