Thank you for your opinion. I really value it!

I kind of felt like he was just starting to get "nobby" looking, which he wasn't before. So I deleted his grain (he tries to snag a bite or two of moms) and I cut back on the alfalfa and added a healthy sum of bermuda. Hopefully that will cut back the calories on baby and still keep momma at a good weight.

I assume plenty of exercise is okay? We don't have pasture, but I usually ride his mom for about 20 minutes and let him run loose. And boy, does he love to run!

Ya that should be fine. Bit thing is not letting him run until he is really tired. I know most of mine have turn out every day and they will run in spurts.

I think your plane for feed should work. Just keep a good eye on him and he condition.
