    I'm for the growth feed. He's a baby... he needs it. I gave it to mine until just before he turned 2 and then we finally switched to a regular sweet feed but my trainer has him on a pelleted feed, which I'll probably keep him on. Don't feel too bad about the "ribby". Babies go from fat to ribby overnight depending on what stage of growth they are in. You'll feed him and get him looking good and then BAM, skinny again! I'd put him on the feed for young horses.

    I have a full 50 lbs. Bag of cadence I assume it would be ok if I fed him that and then the next bag introduce the growth. I originally wanted to buy growth but the guy at the feed store said he would go with cadence and gave me this long talk on why...... and I didn't feel like arguing with the guy so I bought the cadence... but if the growth is what Scout needs then that's what he's getting.
