18 month yearling growth

I need some help with a horse I bought from a kill pen. I want to try and fix any stunted growth issues she might have and am looking for a supplement for her. I know growcolt is an option but its for up to a year old. I think i just want to put her on something to make sure she's getting all the essential vitamins and such that she needs and was lacking.
Right now I have her on free choice hay, and a mixture of alfalfa pellets, 12% sweet feed, and soaked beet pulp.

Any suggestions for feed, supplements or just in general would be appreciated.

Triple crown 30% with the beet pulp and alfalfa pellets. Ditch the sweet feed nothing but high sugar/starch.

There are other ration balancers Purina and nutrena carry them also. Think ADM also has a ration balancer.

Can also do a junior feed.

Dump the sweet feed. I like to feed my youngsters on Purina Equine Junior until they're about 2 years old. If your horse is stunted, then I'd keep him on it longer. If he wasn't underfed for too long, he'll catch up, it'll just take him some time. Due to problems with OCD and other joint issues, I won't feed mine over 16% protein. It's plenty to feed them for growth, and not so much they grow so fast that it causes joint issues. If you're not a Purina fan, Nutrena, Triple Crown, Buckeye are other names of good feeds that I can think of right off the top of my head.
