I have found that feeding on a strict schedule , 3 times/ day, seems to keep my horses looking their absolute best. Cassie weighs about 1200 pounds , I feed her 4 pounds of purina omolene 300 for growth and 1 cup of calf manna, 3 times a day. Our little guy was born on April 15 and he was quite a big boy, and he is big now too... If you are worried about baby eating too much you could always put her feed up higher than baby can reach... But I have also read (blessed are the brood mares, which the girls and guys on this forum got me addicted to) that u should allow foals to "creep feed" as much as they like while they're growing... I haven't tried this yet, since this years boy is huge and healthy enough, but I may try next year depending on our mares and foals.
