I have a maiden mare that is approaching her last 90 days. I would like to make sure that she gets absolutely everything she needs during these critical last three months, especially since I plan on showing her for a few years after this foal is weaned. I know she will need a high protein, high fat, high calcium, low sugar diet, but I was wondering amongst all the suppliments out there what everyone has had the best luck with. She is currently on an alfalfa/grass round bale, but as I move her in from the pasture next week she will receive a 14% pellet feed as well as rolled oats in addition to the same round bale we have here at the place. I didn't know if Source plus a calcium suppliment would be enough, or if a specific mare suppliment is needed. She looks great and is doing well. I just want to make sure we she's not lacking in anything that might affect her in the future.

Ideally get your hay/pasture analysed and go from there. The right calcium/phosphorous ratio is important, as is selenium, and unless you know what is deficient in your forage it is hard to supplement correctly.
We have used MarePlus in the past, but now feed Purina LegendMaker with Equilizer as a supplement in the last 90 days.

how much alfalfa is in the hay? Most grass hays are a little higher in phosphorus than calcium. This makes the need for more calcium crucial for the last month as well as when the foal is nursing. We use a Orchardgrass hay with a smidge of timothy. Our mare is a (1350 lb friesian). She is due 4-24. She currently gets 14 lbs of the hay, four lbs of John Lyons mare and foal feed by Nutrina, four lbs of beet pulp (high in calcium), one lb of oats, 1 1/2 oz selinium and vitamin E, 12 grams of lysine (most grass hay horses are deficiant in lysine), 2 oz of loose salt, .8 oz of Ascend joint gel, and 1/2 lb of vegetable oil. Her calcium to phosphorus levels are great until lactation, as are her lysine, vit E and selinium levels. She is getting enough digestable energy, and such. Do the research, it really pays off! I can tell you how many kilocal she gets, and its very comforting that you dont have to worry about what she is getting. Two WONDERFUL books are "feeding to win 1 & 2" then read your labels! Good luck with it...
