Mare and Foal is designed to provide the extra nutritional support required for both the mare and foal during pregnancy, lactation and growth. During pregnancy and lactation, the nutritional needs of the mare increase dramatically to support proper foal development – as much as double the amount of daily calories at the beginning of lactation. Mare and Foal delivers a concentrated 1400 cal/lb that maximizes milk output, promotes rapid recovery from lactation and minimizes the physical stress of pregnancy.
Likewise, foals require nearly double the amount of daily calories as that of a full grown horse during their first 6 months and continue to require supplemental calories until 26 months. The concentrated calories of Mare and Foal deliver balanced nutrition for optimal growth and development and the edible whey makes it very palatable.
Mare and Foal contains a variety of nutraceuticals to support digestive and immune health, a natural anti inflammatory and is fortified with vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.
MARE RATION. Mare and Foal should be added to the mare’s daily diet at 5 months beginning at a rate of 0.3 lbs per 100 lbs. of body weight. I.e., 3 lbs. for a 1,000 lb. mare. This will increase bi monthly until you reach a rate of 0.8 lbs per 1,000 lbs through the first 3 months of lactation and then will decrease gradually until weaning. You may wish to continue to supplement after weaning if needed to restore condition.
FOAL RATION. Mare and Foal should be fed at a rate of 1 lb. per month of age to suckling foals.
WEANLING/YEARLING RATION. Mare and Foal should be fed at a rate of 0.5 – 1.5 lbs. per 100 lbs. of bodyweight depending upon desired rate of growth.
Available in 50 lb. bags.
