Ive heard that I need to pull my mares off the fescue(thats very short and not much there at all, its several acres but nothing left tall...) heard I need to pull them off alltogether, also heard that its just the tall fescue, that the endophyte is in the seed hull, thats there in the tall/seed heads of the fescue, that short is ok. Can anyone shed any light on this? All my mares are at least 3 mos. out right now except one. thanks!

I've heard that the seeds are the problem as well but then I heard that the fungus is down near the roots so I pulled my mare off completely. My vet said to take her off 3 months before delivery and she'd be alright.

Hi Ralena, my vet also told me to put my mare away from all kind of fescue 3 months before foaling, he also told me not to buy bales or rolls that I was not sure were not fescue free. You can also test your fescue to see if it is contaminated, but I donīt know how to do that.
Welcome to the board and good luck!
