I have a 10 month old, 1/2 Thoroughbred x 1/2 Quarter/Arab, Filly named Twista. She stands about 14hh.
Her dam was a lighter built Quarter/Arab, who was about 15hh.
Her sire was a stockier Thoroughbred who is about 15.2hh.
Right now Twista is on pasture, but we are running out of grass and going to be getting some bales in. She is also getting 3 cups (actual measurement) of 14% Protein sweetfeed once a day. She was wormed in the spring.
When she was 6 months old a vet saw her and said she looked a bit big for her age, a vet saw her today and said she did look a little bit big for her age but not where it would be a concern. The first vet had told me to put her on a joint supplement which I was, but have no stopped it.
1) Hay- What type should I get? Grass or Alfalfa/Grass?
2) Grain- It would have to be available at TSC/Fleet Farm, something that isn't really high priced. I'm just looking for something to give her a little boost of nutrients. Any suggestions?
3) Supplements- Maybe mix a supplement in the sweetfeed (?)
Our sweetfeed is really good quality, and we can buy 85lb bags for $15.
