I just rescued a pregnant mare about 2 months ago. She is gaining weight, but really slowly. She is only about 4-5 months pregnant, but her stomach is huge! The baby is getting all of the nutrients, and im worried she is not gaining enough weight to keep up with the baby. Right now I am feeding her Legends mare and foal and she is getting 2 peices of timothy hay 2xs a day. She only shares her pasture with one other mare so she has access to grass 24/7. I am wondering if there is anything else that I can do for her to help her gain weight before the baby arrives. Is there any weight builder that anyone recomends? Also, I want to know if anyone else has been in this sort of situation, and had a good experience in the end. Was the baby alright? Was the mother able to nurse the baby for all 4 months? HELP I NEED SOME ADIVICE! I FEEL SO OVERWHELMED!
