Actually you should be feeding Omolene 300, that is the Omolene product that is to be fed to foals, weanlings and yearlings...after one year then you go to the Omolene 200 product. How much hay are you feeding...many people overfeed hay to young ones. They need about 1% of body weight, which for most weanlings is 4 - 7 lbs/day.
