Well Butter is droping weight, she has a 3 1/2 month old foal, milk dud, on her. She is getting a total of 3/4 cup mare and foal feed daily split in 2 feedings, lots of hay. She is on a regular worming schedule and was just done about 4 weeks ago. she is also getting hoof abscesses has had 2 in 6 weeks. don't know what keeps causing them.

If everyone remembers she is my girl who had a lot of foot problems when i got her when she was preg she was also about 30lbs underweight.

Milk dud is doing great, gaing weight and growing like a weed, lots of personality.

Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance
