I have gotten the OK to do this by my vet, but was wondering what other people have done/experienced with giving bute to a nursing mare. She is not in foal and it will be for a very short time, 2g tonight and then reducing to 1g and just for a couple of days. I am not so worried about her, but more about transfer to the foal and how it might affect him.

I had a mare on bute while pregnant and also nursing a foal. No problems. Bute up here is called Horsey Asprin. I kept my mare on for about two weeks, two tablespoons twice a day in her grain while she was nursing a sore foot, then took her off and all was well. I am not one to have horses on any kind of medication, but in the case of this mare, she was miserable and in pain from a foot injury and not letting her foal nurse, and also not eating enough to support her pregnancy. I figured it was the lesser of two evils and everything turned out fine in the end.

If your vet has prescribed it, then I'd do it. It shouldn't harm the foal at all, especially short term.
If she were to need it for longer, and unable to graze at will, then some ulcer preventative would be an idea....not sure if the foal would need it, too. But if she has free access to grazing, that wouldn't really be necessary.
