    When he was first born I thought something was wrong with him because his joints were "swollen!" There not swollen--they're just huge!

    Mom Kinsey is 17-3HH and probably still growing. Daddy Warwick is 18-1HH. His full brother, Simply Southern, was close to 17H when we purchased Kinsey--he was a long yearling!!

    Yep, methinks Trident is going to be tall as well as substantial!

    Here's my first ever attempt at a video! You might want to mute it as the sound is only the wind. Also...I forgot I was recording so the ending is a bit...abrupt and shaky!

    Don't encourage him to eat off the ground. Slide momma's feed pan next to the gate and hang a bucket with just a handfull of feed in it chest high for him to play with and eat. Add more as he cleans it up. He should be able to eat 1/4-1/2# every time mom eats. I try to grain my nursing draft mares 4-5 times a day (3# a pop). It's important for him to eat if he's into it as soon as possible. He is growing and putting weight on so fast if the only food he is getting is from mom, he's going to start pulling her down fast. I've found colts to be extra hard on the mares. By 3 weeks of age, he will weight over 400#. All that energy has to come from somewhere.

    Thanks for the info. I'll pick up a hanging feed bucket. I am graining my mare 3 times a day with 1.5 scoops of grain (4.5#) and 1.5 scoops of pelleted hay mixed together (also right at 4.5#). Onto the 1st and 3rd feedings I'm putting 1 cup of oil. I add a couple of gallons of water to it all so that the pelleted hay breaks up.

    She has unlimited grass hay (coastal bermuda) in the form of a round bale. I also put a flake or two of coastal from a square bale every evening.

    It takes her (and the foal; minimally) a while to consume all of each feeding. She'll walk away from it to drink and relieve herself at least once per feeding, but she does clean it all up in about an hour.

    I'm counting the pelleted hay as forage and not feed--isn't that right?

    I'm not here to get in one more feeding of grain/pelleted hay.
