My mare lost twins Sunday morning. She was 324 days. Her udder has gone down some, but I noticed this morning she was dripping milk. How long does it take to dry a mare out after something like this?

I've read that it helps to take them completely off grain, this helps to dry them up.

The vet told me no grain so she hasn't been getting except what I have to give her to get her to take her bute. It hasn't worked the last two times anyway.

Mix the crushed bute in some water until it disolves, then use a syringe to squirt it in, like a worming........it's pretty quick and painless!!

I agree with Kim up there on how to give bute. Much simpler. I leave my mare in for 3 days, no grain, and then have a turn out pen with no grass. I keep her off grass for a full week. She only gets hay and I sneak her a few mints!
