It wouldn't hurt to add a free choice mineral block to their turn out. Hay and feed won't cover all of the nutrients a growing filly needs. You'll have to cover all of the bases to ensure she has the best to help her develop to her best. When was she wormed last? And with what?
The Purina Omolene 400 is pretty good.. I feed the Omolene 200 and Nutrena SafeChoice to my barrel horses. The Safe Choice and Omolene 400 would probably be a very good mix for your filly. I'd definitely wean her onto it though, you don't want her to colic.
i think they are gettin fescue hay now. They have a mineral block in their pasture also. She was wormed at the beginning of december I think and I don't remember what kind I got.
I fed the 200 to my first mare then switched to the feed I have now.
I looked at the 400 and it recomends to feed that till their 2 so would it be okay to feed her that longer than 2 yrs of age?
