Skittle another thing that you need to do to insure a healthy mare and foal is to have your mare vaccinated at 5, 7, and 9 months. The book will tell you all the vaccinations that the mare needs. I used a 5 way on the mares. Go pick up Omolene 300 or the Legends mare and foal at Southern States not sure if they have the legends there but the Omolene is made by Purina.

What I wanted to add is that there are a lot of universities and state agricultural extension services that can give you a whole lot of nutritional information for your mare. This is a pdf file that has nutrition for pregnant/gravid broodmares. http://www.uky.edu/Ag/AnimalSciences/pubs/asc112.pdf
Or Managing Your Pregnant Mare and Her Foal, EC 1476
These are from college/Universities which is my first preference For information of this type, as I am leery of businesses trying to "hawk" their wares over other sources. Not saying they don't provide good feed, just saying I want knowledge before I look at brands of feed. Here it is probably a little different as for vet questions... no consult fee. Our Vet's are used to all kind of weird questions from us. If you have a question that you would like us to ask,without paying a consult fee just let us know. Our Vet is always just a phone call away(during business hours). And they are used to some "off the wall" questions coming from us! LOL
