Why are you feeding oats & what else are you feeding? A basic low starch, high fibre diet of free choice(or little & often) hay/grass and appropriate nutritional supplements to give her what she needs should about do. I'd consult a nutritionist or use something like feedxl.com to ensure a well balanced diet. A proportion of the diet could be lucerne/alfalfa or such, which is high in protein, energy & calcium can be good but may be too much for 'easy keepers'. Health problems(DODs for eg) can arise if you try to 'grow up' a foal too quickly or allow them to become overweight.
