Orphaned or Rejected Foals:
Management Tips

Unfortunately it happens, a mare is lost or rejects her foal.  All too often, on a Saturday evening, a client calls you wondering what to feed and how to care for this foal. 

Be prepared this year to help clients by understanding the pros and cons of a nurse mare, milk replacer, and where the nearest source of milk is.  Hopefully a bucket of FOALS FIRST® Milk Replacer Powder is already stored in your office for when the feed store is closed.
