Worming makes a huge difference on some, make sure he's had the tapeworm wormer as well. If he'll eat it the cheapest and safest way to put weight on is to add corn oil, a little at a time and build up to 1/4 cup twice a day. No protein/carbs so horse won't tie up or get hot or colic, corn oil is supposed to be good for the stomach as well. Horses on oil tie up less as well and it burns when the carbs are gone later in the mile they say so they have more reserve. Cocosoya and rice bran work as well but corn oil is the cheapest. Start slow, can give them the runs if you give too much to soon but i never had a problem.

  Try top dressing with Calf Manna.  High fat, probiotics, biotin... all included.  Since you called him a cockroach, I assume your attitude around him.... (oh  WTF!!!???   I just noticed this is tankin!)  well there ya go, maybe he's just stressed out because he has an idiot taking care of him.

Ulcers maybe?

You can order Stomach Soother (papaya juice) from Big Dee's or make your own from fresh papaya. Rice bran, beet pulp, cocasoya or corn oil as mentioned all good. Worming with the tapeworm stuff is important. Do pull blood.
Good luck.

Get him a 5 day power pac wormer, they sell them at big dees..about 50 bucks.  Makes a world of difference in a short time.  Also maybe check thyroid.  plays a big role in their weight. I power pac EVERY horse before I put them back in training and keep most on a rotating basis of thyroid.  I feed Ultium, purina product.  Expense but well worth it.

hey ogm,i was wondering,do you have some groundworking program you probably think would work to put weight on?kind of like the one that you said can calm an aged racehorse down,you *** whack job.i really feel bad for any owner who is paying you a training bill.you should go but your nose into some one elses business that you dont think is taking care of their horse properly.hey let me give you just a little advice.stick to the riding horses cause you should not be any where near a racehorse.

  Hmmm Cannae Barron Meadowlands last night (26th) race 4.  Methods seem to have worked on him.  Read the magazine article in January Hoofbeats.  
  Ask Jimmy or Donna Marshall what a nice horse he is now to be around.. off and on the track.  That owner still calls me and thanks me.... and I thank him for allowing me the time necessary to do the job right.

After you power pac him  have your vet do a fecal on him to see if he still has worms. If so power him again.
Feed fat cat. (Big D)Also get him on ulcer guard. Some vet will have the generic tubes for about 20 dollars.
Does he like his grain cooked. Cook the oats lots of water.
Has some one had him on Epo?Huh
Check his blood count to see if he is an anemic and his thyroid. If he has hypo thyroid his metabolism is not working properly.
Call the tooth fairy to get his teeth done.
Lots of time in the pen does he have a friend?
Take down a board in the stall and give him a friend you would be surprised how well this works. Take him home a couple of days and see if he likes green grass.With his friend.
Make sure you look in his mouth good for ulcers if he has them in his mouth he has them in is stomach.
