Do you give grain to your pregnant girls at all during their pregnancy? Kochia still has four months to go (although she's big as a house to me!). Or vitamin supplements?

Wow, Kochia looks ready to pop! The sweetie has my sympathy. I can't believe she has four more months. Do donkeys ever have twins?!

She was ultrasounded....just has one! Otherwise I'd wonder if she has twins! This is my first mini baby, and first donkey baby, I figured minis just carry....um.....not as gracefully? LOL But I took her to get bred, she was only gone a week and a half, I know her breeding dates....so no question there!

Ok...are they all this big??


She's not due till the end of August!

I know that wasn't the question in my post.....but I'm not giving any grain either....should I be giving her a little? I know when I had big mares, they were getting grain/vitamin supplements....but then they do anyway.

Ok, I've only been giving her a handful, with a vitamin/mineral/probiotic supplement. Should I be giving her more? Like what the suggested rate is based on her weight? When my mares were pregnant, and at this stage, I gave them a full graining by this time....but so many people say donkeys don't "need" graining...so I've just been giving her some to go along with the supplement (the grain is a pelleted feed, as is the supplement).
