I have a 20 yr old Arabian gelding. Our winters are super harsh where I live and I am moving to a place with an even colder one. My gelding is in good shape. I ride him everyday, he is an awesome condition with a bit of a hay belly. He is super sassy and not at all and old man. I am a bit worried about winter though. I can't ride as much obviously and I don't want him to loose weight. I've looked into getting him a weight gain supplement. I've used Cool Calories before on another horse and that worked well. I fear that Cool Calories will just build on his hay belly and not add any fat to his top line. I've also looked into like a muscle builder. I thought maybe that would help. I don't really know where to start looking. If anyone has any thing they know works or has good things about, please share!

So, a bag of cool calories costs 20-70 dollars, depending on the size, and you can go through a large bag quite easily in a month. I would rather just add beet pulp to your horse's feed, or alfalfa cubes, for the same price and with more calories. I had my horse on cool calories for awhile, then figured I could spend the same money and just feed him more, and it worked out better. I don't really like weight-gain supplements for this reason.

Equine Omega Complete and Forco are great options for this. We use both of them for this exact same reason. EOC is on the more expensive side and Forco is a bit cheaper.

I would look into both:D

He already gets a lot of grain and hay pellets due to his age and workload, I'd prefer to not add more food as it already takes a really long time for him to eat.

I've had good luck with Ultimate Finish, which comes in a couple "levels" of fat I believe. You only have to add 1 or 2 cups a day, so it won't add more bulk but can add a lot of palatable calories. It shouldn't contribute to the hay belly, as that is typically the result of too many carbs and not enough protein. I've heard good things about TriAmino, if you're looking to make sure he gets the right building blocks for muscle.

I would definitely avoid beet pulp if you want to avoid a hay belly. I show some dairy cattle, and one thing that dairy people do with heifers is feed them a lot of beet pulp leading up to show day. They do this heifers that are too shallow and narrow in the belly and it puffs them up without putting extra fat on them since dairy cattle need to be sharp. Beet pulp helps them retain water, but doesnt have a ton of calories, so it would do the opposite of what you want. I would just go with alfalfa. Also, soaking his pellets may help him to eat easier. I've never owned an arabian so I really dont know what would work best for a horse with that kind of metabolism, but I know what the purpose of beet pulp is and that most of my animals hate it.

My arab mare is 22 and I had the same problem with her, I ended up putting her on this as a top dress https://www.buckeyenutrition.com/media/176244/50-gro-n-win_right-gusset.png It helped her alot and made her shiny and have a nice topline! I gave her about 3/4 a cup of it every feeding.

Alright so I had a 20 year old QH who was barrel horse and was in pretty tip top condition, I had him on 2 scoops of triple crown complete and then 2 scoops of LMF senior as well as beet pulp. He also got a scoop of MSM (joints) Cool Calories or I have used Horse Guard Weight Builder and it worked really well for both him and my younger horse as well as Ulcer Guard, and Biotin. Now Chief was also in Oregon, wore blankets anytime it dropped below 50 degrees and stalled at night but was ridden 6x a week and for anywhere between 30 mins to 2 hrs (depending on many things) anyway I wanted to give you an idea.
