We've got a little epidemic happening in my area. Almost all the mares in my area aren't producing milk, or not producing enough milk (like my Ruby).

During labor, some sort of fatigue sets in and the mares do not finish and the foals have to be pulled. (Ruby had a normal labor) Foals seem fine, no deformaties or mental abnormalities.

Then the mares aren't returning to a normal foal heat cycle or 30 day cycle. None with these problems have settled. (Ruby came into her foal heat right on cue.)

Any ideas on what this is? Everyone is swearing no fescue. The only thing I can think of is that we had a drought year last year. My over winter load of hay came from just south of me, and I switched over to a load of hay I bought from up north were they got plenty of rain about a month before Ruby foaled.

She thinks Ruby will be fine, but I'm pulling blood work anyway--I think I'm the only owner who is checking into it.

Might check the nitrate level of the drought hay. All my hay suppliers know about this and check for me, so that nothing happens to my mares and babies. I am so blessed!
