    Thank you guys for all your input.

    My hay is mostly grass very little alfalfa. I was feeding 2nd cutting but my hay guy just ran out on me so I'm switching to 1st for a while.

    I think I'm going to cut the oats out for sure. Sounds like I don't need it anyways. I'll probably cut the sunflower seeds too. I love my coco soya and Ultium. I don't think no one could change my mind on those unless there was a cheaper clone of them lol. I don't think that exists.

    Flax seeds are good for their digestive tract as well too right?

    My filly is growing a lot and was a tad on the thinner side when I got her. The people I got her from were telling me to give her a crazy amount of oats and grain and I was getting all nervous. I feed a lot more hay then they do though so I think what they were recommending probably worked for them. I personally like feeding more hay. I have to watch how my gelding a lot because he can get fat on hay when he is not being worked and is on free choice. He was getting really fat last winter on just hay. I got him where I want him now. That's where it gets complicated! Trying to balance out both of their diets when they are turned out together 24-7. So they pretty much get identical diets, when I sure they have different calorie requirements.

    I don't know much a lot about nutrition and previous to this I only feed my Ultium. I recently got hooked on the coat supplements, but sounds like I'm probably over doing it. I can see a difference though! My gelding always looks like he was just sprayed with show sheen! He gleams! Hard to stay on bareback tho lol!

    Well thanks again! I really appreciate the advice!
