I looked into calf manna before. I might try it at some point. Right now I have Kenzie on 4 lbs Nutrena Mare and Foal, 5 lbs straight alfalfa pellets, we're working up to 2 lbs beet pulp, and 3/4 cup of DuMor UltraShine suppliment. She has free choice costal hay as well. She has a lot of making up to do though and was a good 150 lbs or more underweight when we got her, and very small for her age. She's 12.3hh at the wither now and weighs about 400 lbs according to a weight tape, and still needs at least 20 lbs... but she was 12.2hh and only about 275 lbs! O_O
You should try to find another horse to put out with her. Being out with another horse really teaches them a lot and will help get her conditioned for when the time comes for you to ride. My colt is out with 2 fillies right now. They put him in his place when he acts up and also run around with him. They have a lot of fun out in the pasture :P

When I first got him he was 13 hands and about 420, a little too skinny for my liking! Since it was winter and the grass quality was low, I introduced some supplements into his diet. Grow Colt and Smart Hoof. The grow colt is basically just vitamins and minerals that are essential for support in healthy growth. And he had bad feet so I threw the hoof supplement in there.
If you ever have any doubts in the plan you have just ask your vet. Most are more than happy to answer any questions:)

(here's another pic of him today:)

I'm definitely trying to! Unfortunately she's been alone 90% of her life (she has a sad, sad story. It breaks my heart.) so she never did develope social skills, so finding a horse on our farm that is willing to 'teach her' without being too hard on her and injuring her has been difficult. She was in with two other mares, but they pushed her into a corner and never let her eat the hay. Then she was with a donkey but he ignored her and kicked if she got too colse. Someone else told me they probably recognize that she's the weakest link in the herd and want to always outcast her.

I have a promising prospect for a pasture buddy that I introduced her to today though, so I'm pretty excited. I hope it works out! Poor gal really does want to be with other horses but just doesn't understand how to interact with them.

He looks amazing! Tall, too.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
