Morning feed we use a good Breeder mix, we add some groats, and a squeaker mix, a big spoon of any oil, and a spoon of S M A baby powder, this is fed in their trough has much as they eat, try not to leave any about for it to get soiled, then evening feed is the Beans and peas first and topped up with the breeders, We find they feed the youngsters better by feeding twice or even three times a day as the days get longer, they don't seem to have the same appetite when hopper fed,

Once ybs are being fed on hard corn we feed them bucktons high speed wich is beans ,maples tares. its in pots right through till weaning stage morning and night , then once they are moved we give them same with a four seasons mix 3 to 1 thats 3 high speed to 1 four season , this is fed right through till racing begins, then we feed them 3 to 1 thats 3 four season to 1 high speed. plenty of protien because they are still growing.
