My mare had a foal last year and i put her out on loan i took her back three months ago as unfortunatley they had starved her and she was in such bad condition. I have now discovered that she has bagged up over the last two weeks and is showing all the signs she did last year but i am worrying if she is what condition the foal will be in if it is still alive i have contacted my vet but think it is mean to do an internal as she would be so far gone please help!!!!
I bought a mare about 3 years ago and she was so thin I contacted my vet and he said to just start feeding her right. She had to put on about 75 pounds to have a healthy foal. She did put on 75 to 100 pounds to and had a very big baby. I started slow and worked her up. Feed her the maxium you can that you fill is right without giving her problems. There are some meds that you can give her so contact your vet again and ask about a med that you can safly give her. Hope this helps a little!
