So I'll give you guys a little introduction to my situation; I adopted my TB 3 months ago when he was 9 months old. He was a sorry looking colt. Very wormy and had a big ol hay belly.
He is now on a farm with 24/7 turnout. The pastures are grass and they also throw out a round bail for the horses to munch on. He was on 3 quarts (full scoop) of feed twice a day to get him back on track.
Now he is a year old and I have noticed that he is not increasing in weight as much as I'd like. The owner of the farm has cut back on the feed to 2 quarts twice a day. She says because the grass will be growing more now he will not need as much. I think otherwise. He is still skinny, so I think he could definitely use a full scoop. I'm also adding some T&A to his diet to help him bulk up a bit.
Does anyone have experience with getting weight on young horses?
