My sister & I just picked up a mare in foal. It was kind of a rescue situation. We don't know much about her other than she came from the auction,
The vet checked her out & everything seems ok. She is about 6 months along.
The mare could stand to put on a little weight, but she isn't under weight.
We currently have her on grass, but wanted to add some pellets.
I was told that most mare & foal feeds have 15% protein and are high in fat, plus a lot of additional vitamins.
I was also told that too much protein can cause issues with the foal, and I don't want her to founder.
My other horse (Mona) had her foal no problem, but she is also a super easy keeper.
I'm probably worrying for no reason, but I don't know how well this horse was taken care of before we got her.
What would you suggest as far as pellets go & what should I be looking for on the bag.
