Makes poor horses and mules fat without bloating. It
does this by first thoroughly cleansing the system of
all impurities, allowing perfect assimilation of food,
thereby creating solid muscle and fat.
Horses and mules improve in appetite and spirits
after the first few doses, the hair sheds, and the new
coat is always sleek and glossy.
Ashcraft's Condition Powders are packed in doses,
