    Wow thanks people for your investigations!:D Ive wondered many times (when I hand over the $56 at the stockfeeders!!) if there was much difference between Ricebran and Equijewel? However I am soo happy with the results feeding Equijewel has achieved with my boy I darn't take him off it now!! His topline/bum and coat is a million bucks!!! It has made him a little hotter but im not complaining about that.
    Has anyone worked out how much a cup of Equijewel weighs?? I dont have scales!

    I started looking at this as well at the start of the week. I had a look on KER's website for the Equijewel, the analysis varied a bit from yours ritzy :confused:

    Nutri-Rice allrounder is about $38 a bag where I am (the great southern) so I would think would be about $5 a bag cheaper in Perth.

    I guess ultimately you could feed coprice rice bran, which is 1% less fat, 3% less fibre, and the same amount of protein as equijewel. Although I did here mention of someone directly contacting the company regarding coprice rice bran only to be told it's not actually made from rice anymore and they have been using barley :confused: Although not sure how much truth there is in that.

    I'm going to swap over from feeding the Hygain Ice and Equijewel to Nutri-Rice Allrounder and the Weight Gain. Which I guess is just glorified pollard, sunflower seeds, soyabean meal and rice bran with a nice price tag.

    Just a query for smash though, what is betonite in the weight gain? and why would they have caramel extract?

    tis is just my opinion OK
    betonite is a binding agent (it is use for CATTLE)
    caramal extract, is just that. flavoring.

    *does the old "keep vampire away" signs with my hands*
    i would keep investigating jag, surely there are better products than that
    just remember, it is just my opinion

    Nah that's fine I appreciate all advice. Just frustrated with this damn horse that won't put weight on, for love or money. *sigh*

    I'm guessing your advice would be feed copra?

    Thats my advice anyway!
    Ive got one of those horses that you tear your hair out trying to get weight on them.
    This has worked wonders for him.
    But just like everything.... its not for everyone.
    Good luck

    now this would be a good time for you to join the "investigators" and start RESEARCHING what would be good for your baby.
    *hint* research what a horse of your horses age requires as in nutrition and then start INVESTIGATING.
    i cant make it too easy PE, or else ya just dont learn LOL, soooo this RESEARCH will help YOU HEAPS pumpkin.
    good luck

    I feed my young boy, Cullen on just 300grams a day of Smash's product and it's 20 kilo bag and it lasts me ages! And for my old fella, Fox he gets 1.5kg a day...both get a small biscuit of lucerne hay at nights. We have ample of green grass everywhere.

    Pretty happy with it...it has saved me heaps of $$$

    Brodie 1808, have you tried full fat soya meal, or oil? Even a bit of pollard? i had a mare that was due to foal and she was a bit light on I started her on Pollard, Copra, Lucerne cubes and soya meal within six weeks she was shiny and fat in that time she foaled so had the lactating foal on her as well, I didn't keep feeding the pollard but replaced it with pellets. Just a thought to throw in the tank for you!!
