I'm new to this forum and I am really looking for some advice on my draft filly. Hayley is a 6 month old Perch/spotted draft. Her dam is 17.2hh and her sire is 18hh. She's already 15.1 - 15.2hh at her withers and 15.3 or taller at her bum. Is that ok, or is she getting too big to quickly??
I fully expect her to be huge and don't care if she gets to be bigger then her parents, I just want to know if she's ok. Also at night she comes inside and she seems to stock up in her back pasterns. Is this normal or ok for a baby? It seems to go away druning the day when she's outside. Do they look normal here? ( I know not the best picture I will be getting more later). She's not my first baby but she's my first draft.
Right now she's on Purina Ultium Growth Formula, along with Weight Builder, Slenium and E suppliment and regular mutli vit. That all my horses get. And she gets timothy/grass mix hay. We've looked a lot and so far that's thebest we can find that's sold in our area for her ( western NY) and if anyone has something else they think would be better for her please say so
Any advice on her would be great!!
