What's best to feed my 2 year old?!

My horse will be 2 later this year (end of July), he's an irish sports horse and BIG!! Getting on for 15.2 now and expected to make around 16.2.

He isn't in any work at the moment but going to be starting light work over the next few weeks - lunging, long reining etc. Currently just turned out for anything between 4-8 per day with up to 20-25 horses so likes to do a lot of running about and playing. Not much grass in the field but coming through slowly.

He gets 2 (BIG) haylage nets at night and 2 feeds per day (morning and night). He is being fed on 1 scoop of molichaff condition with soya oil, 1 scoop of baileys everyday high fibre mix, garlic and cod liver oil (no carrots!!)

I just wanted to know if people think this is a good enough feed or would like some advice of anything better or more suitable I could be giving him due to his age/work load/size etc. I want to give my boy the best possible diet to support growth, development etc.

Any advice welcome please :)
