Thanks Fuzz. She's got really good pasture right now, and isn't very far along - I'm thinking ahead for the end of Fall when she gets into the 5-7 months stage.

right now my pasture is dry as the mojave dessert and so im keep as much green pasture forge in the feeders I can and soaking  the hay with as much water as I can to keep them away from getting in the habit of eating any of the dang weeds and green star thistle its like a one heck of a baby setting process.

For me I've had success with Blue Seal Demand combined with Calf Manna and Omega Horse Shine along with Alfalfa hay. I start this the last 3 months in foal and continue it thru the yearling year. I really like the growth rate that this gives the babies. Demand is a 16% low starch pellet which is relatively cheap when compared to other high protein feeds. The calf manna should be used sparingly. I use like 1/4 cup with each feeding.

i am really glad it is not as hard to feed a horse as some of you try to make it...if this was true there would only be a few of you in the world smart enough to feed one.....the last trimester(few months) feed buckeye grow and win..to mare and foal until you wean..then keep baby on it
