Regarding nutrition, the basics would be milk replacer intended for horses so that the baby grows nutritionally sound. A vet pulling and testing for the need of plasma if there was no opportunity for colostrum. Introducing hard feeds that would replace the need for round the clock feedings by bottle. You don't want to leave milk replacer out in a bucket for free choice and walk away as that would go bad fairly quickly.

As they grow they need the opportunity to exercise so they develop correctly. Having a babysitter horse or other youngster for companionship makes a big difference in their minds and their manners. You'd need to know what is available there to know what to suggest.

I'd say his problem is a combination of poor nutrition, inadequate exercise and improper hoof care. No blame being placed as I gather in some countries care is what it is. OP you are making good effort. With the right info perhaps we can tailor it to suit his needs better.

What would help would be pictures of the bag of feed - showing name, brand and ingredients, if listed the guaranteed analysis (which may not be available). Same for the minerals. Do you know what type of grass is in the pasture and the general region you are in so we can get an idea of soils and possible mineral loads in the water?

the feed bag is in Russian. I tried google translating it but it didn't really work. there is only one main kind of grass. its just the natural stuff that grows in Mongolia. there are lots of minerals in the water...what kinds im not sure of.

@Emma 15 - there is a world wide user group here. If you post a picture of the bag we can probably figure it out. That is the advantage to a forum like this. One can translate even if they are unsure of feed requirements and one can provide the info you need even if they can't translate Russian. What general region are you in? Like here I would say I am from the coastal south on the Gulf of Mexico. I could narrow it down even further without givng up personal info by saying I live in Alabama. That gives readers a general idea of where to look for info on plants, soils and water quality.
