Haha yes, that definitely does make sense. So it would be more economically preferable to buy a foal-oriented feed than a basic feed with supplements, correct?

Of course, the OP loves the foal.....

Yep, Henry is cute.

But, when you talk showing him....that is a different ball game.

I have seen some "hard to beat foals" at smaller open shows.

I don't care what the OP does with Henry, I was just posting of how to give the foal the best shot at showing.

The other foals there will be fit.

Count on it.

I'm aware there will be very competitive horse there, but that's okay. My priority is getting Henny experience, not winning.

Yes. It will save money in the long run. And be better for him in the long run. As it is made specifically for a babys digestion and growth needs :)

We are very different.

I go to win.

Oh well, now you know what you will be up against.

The only thing we feed our young horses is good quality hay....we never feed them grain or any supplements. They all are big and healthy.......I really don't see the point in feeding a youngin grain.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
