Apache was a nurse mare orphan foal and he was taken away from his mom just a couple days old. He was taught how to drink milk from a bucket. We used a powdered formula we bought from the feed store. The one we got was for horses/cows/goats etc - just different concentrations for each type and we mixed it up at each feeding. There is also one called Foal Lac if you can find it which is a formula made especially for horses that is even better. We just couldn't find it in our area at the time.
I just hope baby got all the colostrum needed from mom.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
