My new 5 months old QH yay!

So this is Sniper, he is a 5 month old full QH. He was an Opps baby, his sire jumped the fence and bred two mares, and he is one of the resulting foals.

He has Black Burn and Poco Bruno and also Two Eyed Jack blood line on his sires side. He's either a dark bay or black I didn't get close enough as their place was muddy. He's not registered.

His dam is a red dun, she is registered but not sure who is in her bloodlines.

Have a question, he is not weaned yet. But owner says that he's not suckling much anymore and she's not feeding him anything extra at this time.
What type of food is good for him, I use sentinal so I was looing at the sentinal safe start. And should I soften it with water so he doesnt choke. Here is the link

Well here are the pictures. Any type of confo critique would be helpful if possible. The last picture is him and his Dam. Thanks

Cute, not great confo shots, and he is really young to tell much. What is an Opp? Sorry-no idea.

I'm thinking it was a typo; an 'oops' baby.

Very cute, OP! Looks to be bay to me, but like you said- hard to tell. If he's five months old and not nursing much, I'd say it's probably just time to wean him. He's already begun, himself. You don't need to soften his food; that actually might cause choke even easier as it will gum up.

He's bay and yes, at 5 months it's time to wean. Don't worry about softening his food with water. He can eat food just like any other horse. Most babies start "mouthing" grain at just a couple days old, he's more than ready.

Lol I was so busy thinking PMU, Nurse mare type foal.....typo never occurred to me. Sorry-tired...overthinking for sure!

It's tough to critique foals, even with great confo shots. Love his face markings!

Like others said, don't soften his feed. Most start creep feeding with their dam at a few days old, he's more than ready.

Yes he is ready for weaning. But im not his owner yet. He's getting his coggins
Done on Wednesday and will be here as soon as we get the results.
I have another horse who is a great babysitter we call him uncle rocket so hopefully that will make it a little easier on him.
