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, thats why I have her so young. Anyways, What should I be feeding her? Ive never had a horse this young. Ive bought omelen 300, thats 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 dont want her getting to little, nor to much.

Thanks!

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.
