Re: feed and supplements

Hi Leanne,

I would consider Top Spec Super Conditioning Flakes along with grass hay and some added alfalfa (lucerne).

He could also benefit from a multiple vitamin/mineral supplement designed for growth such as Top Spec No. 3 for Broodmare and Youngstock.

Hope this is helpful!
