I have just purchased a paint mare in foal, this is a first for me. But she definately needed saving. I had Vet check done & they told me she was 150 lbs underweight, had worms, blood work showed she has muscle breakdown to support foal. Poor thing is just a bag of bones. The prev owner states he fed her 1 1/2 lbs. of grain daily and 1 flake alfalfa AM & 1 PM. I have to carefully up her feed to 4 lbs 2 x's daily & 2/3 of a bale of alfalfa & unlimited hay. How do I do this safely? How much feed can I safely give her extra at a time? lso gave her a salt block & after a bout 15 min had to take it t away from her, she just would not stop licking it. By the way foal is due March 17th. Any & all info would be greatly appreciated. Do you believe this man rode this horse to my house 4 miles from his to show me the mare!!!!!!!!!!
