Feeding a Foal?

Question and Anwser

Customer:

“Is it okay to feed to three month old foal? If so what amount?”

Answer from Equine Nutritionist, Del Johnson:

Yes it is OK to feed foals. You will feed by weight as with all horses. Horse Guard is
fed at 1 ounce per 500 lbs. So if the foal is on a creep feed to supplement the mare’s milk
you will feed by the weight of the foal. If he is 100 lbs you would feed about 1/5th of an
ounce per day.
