Worked like a charm. Was a good supplement added to a hard keeper who also happens to be extremely picky.

Very likeable by the animals. It mixes ease with the grain. It appearedto be working good. I can see the difference already on the weight.I hope the company don't raise the price.

Excellent weight builder for high energy horses!
I have a Quarter/Arab cross mare we have struggled to keep weight on especially during show season. Many of the weight building products caused her to be hot or super sensitive. We have been very pleased with Delight's weight on this product and it has not made her hot. Her coat is amazing and she looks better than ever. Very happy with Hard Keeper!!!! So happy I have recommended Hard Keeper to all my friends!!

Plan to set up auto delivery
I am normally skeptical about supplements but decided to give this a try. My baby is a 19 year old quarter/paint gelding. He is a big boy and has always been an easy keeper and very healthy. This winter he spiked a fever of 104.3 and became lethargic with no know cause. He came out of it OK but dropped a lot of weight and started looking his age. His blood work is all normal and he won't eat grain with oil on it so I tried this. I could tell a difference in his weight, muscle and coat after only 2 weeks of giving 4 oz per day!!! I am going to put all of my horses on this at a maintenance dose. I just can't say enough good things about it!

Gentle on his tummy and did does the job!
My sweet Flash needed cool calories and lots of them! I purchased Hard Keeper for two reasons, one for the reviews and one for the price. I have been extremely happy with the results!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SUPPLEMENT!!
I LOVE Vita Flex Hard Keeper. I've been using it for year to put & keep weight on my older horses and it's never let me down. Not only does it put the weight on and help my older girl keep it on but it makes her coat look amazing!! It works so great that I give it to all my horse to make sure they are keeping their weight on especially during the winter and to give their coats they extra shine. I love that it works great without making my horses hot and crazy like other products! Highly recommended for all ages!

Hard Keeper is the best.
I have tried many supplements for weight gain on horses but only found Hard Keeper to really do the job. The horses love it and even I feel tempted to taste it since it smells so good. I get the product on auto-ship which is the best convenience anyone can ask for. If I need a shipment sooner I just get online and change the date and it is here in a few days. Horse.com is a company that I whole-heartedly endorse. Product quality is amazing and unbeatable, and the prices are hard to beat as well.

Helps All Types Of Horses!
This supplement helped all my horses just be healthier overall. I at first started it on my older gelding to help with weight gain, he became super shinny and started gaining weight. I decided to put my QH/TB on the lower dose for his coat and he became a deep red with shine and a great topline. I know have my easy keeper WB on the lower does too, he is a grey and this is the only thing that makes him shine. Also I noticed his hay belly went away!

It is working quickly on 2 different ages/breeds, it's a good price on sale, and it doesn't make my horses hot because it is almost entirely fat/protein.

Is it a powder or a crumble?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is a powder!!! My 31 year old gelding was getting very thin and I started using this product and he looks amazing. I give him 2 scoops in the morning and 2 scoops in the evening on top of his oats.
