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 you 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.
