Feed for post-pregnancy mare

I have a 5 year old mare who just had her baby 2 days ago. The vet has checked them and they are both healthy and happy!

Can anyone recommend a good food for her for the next few months? She's a rescue and while she is recovering nicely, I would like advice on a good food for her! Here is a picture of her foal, Storm!

Aww congrats! There are a ton of options out there. My mares\foals are on Purina Ultium Growth. Its a bit of the pricey side but I've had great results with it.

Most brands of the Youth formulas are designed with nursing mares in mind. We feed Nutrena Youth.

In fact I believe Nutrena changed the name to Mare/Foal formula.
