I adopted an orphan Belgian x Percheron PMU foal who's mother had died when she was 2 1/2 months old. She was a bag of bones (268 lbs) at 4 months old and I had serious doubts she would make it. Luckily she is a fighter and is now 11 months old, 14.1 and 603lbs. The vet said not to let her grow too fast, but I am worried she is a bit underweight. She looks just like her Belgian Momma. Anyone have any knowledge of what an 11 month old should weigh? Is she on track for height?
I have also read not give her too much sugary grains. I have been giving her Omelene foal and a flake morning and night of grassy alfalfa. I was also giving her a scoop of weight builder through the winter, but have stopped now that spring has sprung.
