Is she getting enough? Feeding a 4 month old arab filly

So, I just brought home my new additon. A 4 month old arab filly. Her mother was going to the sale barn, that's why I have her so young. Anyways, What should I be feeding her? I've never had a horse this young. I've bought omelen 300, that's what I feed the yearlings. I am also going to put her on a constant supply of hay. Should I be giving her any suppliments?
I don't want her getting to little, nor to much.

Four months is not that young. We wean between 3-4 months every season.

We feed our fillies Nutrena Youth and give them Milk Plus and XTN.

They are not on free choice hay but are fed an alfalfa mix 3-4 times per day. Once they are yearlings they move to the next group and are then on free choice hay.
