I built a new barn and have built a stall with in. I still have to build the doors, but I bought a tarp to cover, in case the temps get extreme. The temps here the dead of winter do get down to -35 for weeks at a time. She does have her baby fuzzy coat, although with those pesky dung balls from the breeder.
We are working at them daily. I think we have too much grain in her at the moment. She was more excited last night than she normally is. Kinda frisky, playful and testing her limits.
Any thoughts on feed? Her breeder feed half a scoop of grains in the am/pm. I was told this was NOT enough. We have a 13% protein grain mix to hold her over until the feed store got in her growth pellets mix. She loved that, and we were feeding her 1 and a half scoops am/pm. Last night gave her the growth feed 14% with high fat content for the first time a 70/30 mix to introduce it. Hehe did she let me know that she didn't want that mixed in with her grain. Tossed the mix to the pigs, feed just the grain...and we had a happy horse again.
SO how much, what kind? She is a six month old Belgian, in great shape.
