So I am new to having a foal as mine is the product of having to put my mare down and doing the ICSI emotional route, so please forgive my lack of knowledge. I have a 4 month old who is giant (mom was 18.1 and I think he’s going to end up there). Right now he still has mom and they get grass hay and she gets LMF Development G which he eats some out of her bucket. They are out all day but there isn’t much grass at this time of year.
I am worried about him growing too fast for sound development and wondering if I should be giving him anything special knowing he’s bound to be 17+ (probably 18 hands).
The vet said at 3 months everything looked fine joint and bone wise, but that he is indeed giant.
