Milk Replacer Questions

I have a now almost 4 months who (long story short) was removed from my mare 3 weeks ago and I now have him back. I am going to be purchasing a milk replacer/supplement to put him on starting today because he is basically already weaned at this point......

I am looking for uggestions on what to look for? Brands? Ingredients? Etc?????

At 4 months a milk replacer is not necessarily a need - a balanced diet can be accomplished without using a milk replacer. Quality hay and a supplemental feed intended for young, growing foals will be sufficient.

Do you have any brand suggestions for me? I would prefer to get advice from here rather than google, and I have different options on feed stores to purchase from and they carry a variety of brands.

What brands are available to you and what types of forage is he eating?
By 3 months, a foal that is eating hay and concentrates doesn't need a milk replacer.

Much depends on what is available to you in your area, but find something that has been developed for growing foals and feed good hay too.

Feed store can tell you, like a farm store?
