What are you currently feeding and does the horse go out to graze on good pasture or is he mostly hay fed?

I feed omaleen 200 every day but they are on a 10 acre pasture at all times with free feed round bales of hay there not even in feeders so the horses can have all they want

I'm willing to bet that it's the healthy coat coming in. It can happen with manes and tails as well.

If you're feeding the recommended amount you should be getting enough vitamins/minerals
You could try adding some extra oils, biotin, flax seed for extra coat health
Horses are all changing coat right now so might just be that you're seeing
This is a comparison between what you're feeding and Blue Seal feeds Sentinel senior

California Trace is a favorite of mine. I order it online. But it really varies depending on the area you live in, as some spots that are deficient in certain minerals are not in others. Best to look up soil contents and hay contents for your specific area and going from there. Smart Pak has a lot of options to choose from which is really convenient too.

would the senior care be good for a baby though?

I just gave that one as an example of a feed that contains biotin and oils - there are others on the market but not sure what's available to you
This should be a link to their feed for growing youngsters

And this is the Triple Crown feed for youngsters - I personally prefer this brand but not always available in some areas
Triple Crown Horse Growth Formula-For Successful Horse Growth Results | Triple Crown Nutrition

What sort of a worming routine are you using and have you treated the horse for ulcers?
Both can have a dramatic effect on the horses ability to utilize its food

Yes I saw them on that thread - they have come on a long way from where they were, you've done well.
I have found that horses that have gotten that poor sometimes have encysted worms - something your vet could detect in a blood test and advise on treatment
Poor health and lack of food (and worms) can cause stomach ulcers. Having a scope is expensive but a having them on something like U-Gard for a while wont break the bank or do any harm.
