I do think however I could back off a little on Blondie as she is a pretty easy one to keep the weight on. :)

Any suggestions on maybe a different feed for Karma?

If that's how much you need to keep weight on her at the moment then keep feeding the same amount.

They definitely look better I'd not say your over feeding you can still see ribs easily.

They look good now.

Our yearlings get pasture in the Summer/Fall and high quality hay in the Winter and early Spring when the grasses are still sprouting. We don't give them supplements or grains.

It worries me when you say your grazing is ALFALFA, CLOVER and grass.
Alfalfa and clover can be major triggers for all sorts of problems ranging from head flicking to nutting off at nothing. This is because both of these have an extremely high potassium load which causes major imbalances in potassium/sodium/clhoride ratios - all of which affects the nerves.
Personally I would not put a horse in a paddock with much clover or alfalfa but above all make sure that you are feeding SALT around 3 TBSP a day (yes tablespoons) EACH. Even if they have a salt lick, unless you live by the sea, they won't get enough out of a salt lick.
There's a really good article about this here
