stable toys are optional. They don't need etra feed if they are being stalled. The more feed the more energy and that's what you don't want right now. Their feed rations should be small but give them lots of hay. Once they start working and learning then up them on their feed.
Make sure you have their bedding, hay, buckets for feed and water, and if you want maybe some toys. Make sure they also have appropriate fitting halters and a lead for each. I prefer to have a lead with a shank on it for babies as this way they can't get away with pulling me around or rearing or anything. Don't snap it, just use it as pressure to get their attention
