    I have an older TB. Needing to fatten him up.
    Currently he's getting lucern biscuit and Lympia pellets in moring and again in the afternoon and able to feed in paddocks grazing as well.
    Is there something better i can be feeding him to fatten him up?

    I'm not familiar with those pellets. I can only offer from advice from my experience, the more bulk (hay etc) the better. Our oldies did well on gumnuts, plus a cup of oil. If he's having trouble chewing, or dropping feed, mixing the lot with speedibeet or fibrebeet could be beneficial (just make sure to soak those according to directions). There are things like full fat soy meal or weetbix that you could try, make any changes slowly. Good luck.
