From the pictures in your profile (I think just the 2 QHs?) They look good. Baby is a tad lean, which is perfect and the 6 yo might be a tiny bit overweight but hard to tell and looks good. Would love to see Whiskey once her front end catches up :)

Throw her food food and more food. It will probably go straight to the baby. Don't worry about her weight unless she is gaining super fast or is obviously fat.
thanks -- he would never let someone else take ownership -- he has had her her entire life - i wouldn't ask either -- if it was a big deal -- i would just tell him to come get her --- otherwise i will just keep feeding her and grumbling

besides she has done a pretty good job teaching the QH's some manners --- i have a feeling the previous owner may have spoiled them a bit

Whiskey has put on a good bit of weight and at least her front has grown 3 inches taller and the muscles across her chest has grown thicker and a bit wider

So far, no, I haven't had any problems with condensation even though it is humid where I live. The bins aren't really air-tight though.

should hay feed as much as possible, grain is just when they cant get enough access to grass/hay and makes up for the nutrients they're not getting. our horses get grained once a day & hayed 3 times a day. most of them just get one coffee can each (some along w. other supplements).

the love of riding outweighs the fear of falling.

that is good info -- would definitely save us a lot on feed

i keep a round bale in the pasture -- and tonight is the first frost of the year --- i will look into adjusting feed levels once spring rolls around again and the grass starts going wild
