Lactating Mare Nutrition/Feeding Help Needed!

Recommended Posts

We feed grain by cups and hay by pounds......go figure....


4 lbs of hay each spread between two meals is the standard maintenance amount for most of our minis not on pasture.

Our lactating mares or mares in their last trimester get between 2 up to SIX cups of grain twice a day each, depending on their individual needs.

It really is a personal judgement call.
