Castle is currently being fed on half a scoop a day of Red Mills Cool & Cooked (split into two feeds), but as he'll be getting a hunter clipped and be hunting or competing every weekend, I was thinking that that was maybe not enough for his needs, what are your opinions?

And what would you recommend?

Depends if he tends to lose weight over the winter or not? And if he lacks energy etc.? If you really think he needs more then you can either increase his current feed or add something else but it what depends on what he needs!

In the winter, mind tend to stay the same weight but all live out 24/7 and are clipped (but obviously rugged with access to stables). 3 will compete most weekends all winter. I simply swap up a level, so they stay on their usual mix and cubes but instead of their Alfa A, they get Alfa A Oil and instead of sugar beet they get Dengie Alfa Beet (the more conditioning types).
