FEEDING HORSE GUARD TO MY FOAL
“At what age foal can you start feeding Horse Guard?”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
If the mare is receiving Horse Guard I would start the foal when you wean the foal because he is getting selenium from his mother’s milk. However, if the mare is deficient or it is an orphan foal you can supplement them right right away. Just feed the dose according to his weight. For example, if you estimate he weighs 250 when you wean him feed a 1/4 of a scoop.
