what others have told me around here is all the hay they can eat and alfalfa pellets, beet pulp, and rice bran and corn. i am not feeding the corn but the others i am. she has stopped loosing and even gained a little since here but with a 5 month old filly on her she cant gain. i am hoping to have her completly weened soon. i see her sometimes pushing her away or pulling up her leg so she cant nurse and every time i see her nurse i give a no sound and she knows i mean quit. and she does. she is very smart the little booger!! i hope to have them seperated more so i can work with mom more. she is not broke yet and actually hasnt any maners or respect so we are trying parelli. jewels is doing pretty good with it and i am too. but with baby right beside us it is hard and tinker crys when she is away from her.
