I'm looking now, and that does seem like an extensive about of grain. But not way too much.
I fed my mare two scoops (like your scoop) twice a day. When she had her colt though I uped it to 2.5 scoops of grain and a half scoop of beet-pulp (dry measurement) three times a day. With my foal, when he was a yearling I fed him a scoop, twice a day, of a complete feed along with free choice hay.
It's a battle because not only are you trying to feed him up to grow, but to add weight at the same time.
Is he on free choice grass hay? If you can do it, I'd give him as much hay as possible with a complete type of feed. He is looking better though, especially Rouge too. Good job!
