    Thanks everyone. I really like her!

    One thing is we aren't going to be lunging her untill about 2 yrs old.My mom let me know as the vet told her what it can do to their joints. Some people say do it and some say don't..I rather not however I do have her in the round pen to lead her around,learning to stop(on lead..she needs to work on that a bit),turn off haunches(when I come into her I want her to step away and see that she was yielding w/her haunches..does that make sense?...she is a bit of a pocket pony right unless something scares her). There are many things we need to work on with her and we plan on doing small things but we are doing it in the round pen since we don't have an arena :)

    We just got her some development grain by LMF. It's really good stuff and has extra protein in it. My mom also had her on a worming schedule.She use to be out on pasture with all the other horses. I did not know about the lack of protien thing..thank you :) Learn something new everyday!

    I just recently learned it to! It was a shetland breeder on another forum that posted about what they feed and why with pictures. I was shocked at the diffrence.

    I talked to my mom(we are really close and talk every day) anyways I mentioned why her belly might be like that. She did say she was giving her supplements.Maybe she needs even more protien?

    She is sooo adorable. We named her Stormy/Storm and she is going to be my official endurance horse =D Gidget will be one too but not anything too extreme or super long.

    I'm really excited. I know she needs a lot of work. We have her seperated currently since we don't want her trying to buddy up with our other horses so she can get use to us. Last night she would follow me in circles :P

    do you know what % the feed is? A growing horse should be on a %14-%16.

    Also the belly isn't going to go away over night.

    Here it is..this is everything it has in it.

    Once she is older we will probably switch her over to the super supplement or something.

    I'm new at this so I really can't offer to much but one thing I know is that growing horses also need lysen (sp?) I don't see that in there.

    I'm new at this too. I don't know much about some of the minerals and vitamins to be honest but this is one of the best feeds in our town..in my opinion.It's one of the better brands. It has the nutrients that horses lack in the west coast..such as selenium.

    I will have to talk to a vet abotu it and see..

    thats a good idea. Also you could probably post on here asking what young horses need. I know there are some members here that know
