i have a foal 5mths old bean weaned for about 3 wks has been doing great eating well puting on heaps of wait and today started to scour like cow patties and he's gone really quiet just nibbling at his feed any advice would be great and if he looks worse tomorrow i will call the vet .thanks.

sounds like foal has worms,cannot insist it enough if havent wormed it yet do it asap, over infestation can cause ruptured intestine and you lose your little bub .
hope this helps
if my prediction is wrong please let me know what it was as i am always willing to learn thanks

if he is getting too much grain it may be too much for his little tummy,lucerne and wheaten or just hay are fine other than that it could be worms.

Your other two messages could be right and even lucerence or new spring greens can give your foal the runs. To help settle your foals stomach feed him yogurt this will help put back the good bacteria within the gut.
