My vet told me that I need to be feeding my mare Strategy plus an Equine Senior feed, but she told me that I need to serve the pellets wet and mashed up. Does anybody know if it's ok to mix the two feeds together and mash it up with her Mare Plus vitamins??

I've never heard of that Emily. Is there a reason why he wants her on the Equine Senior Feed? If your mare is getting good quality hay, the Strategy should be enough and it does not need to be wet and mashed up.

I don't know why the vet said that either but I fed my Topi the first couple of days Strategy with warm water. I did not have a bran mash like I have read is good for their digestion after they give birth so I just did this to make it softer and get more water down her if she needed it. I do know that Equine Sr is easily digestible and has hay built right in it. I feed it to my 23 year old horses.

I have a question about the hot bran mash.

Is it the BRAN that is useful in the mare as a laxative? after foaling or what is the purpose in it ?

I actually carry a pitcher of hot water out every AM/PM in the winter to mix my 3 horses feed with.
One morning I was late for work and dumped there grain in dry, well that afternoon doing the barn work I checked there feeders and my mare and young gelding had not touched theres only the 6 yr old gelding who is like a goat and will eat whatever is put in front of him, so I guess they are spoiled now !

The purpose of feeding the hot bran mash is that it acts as a laxative. My vet said if I didn't want to give her that, then I could just feed her some stemy hay.

Well I think the reason my vet told me to do that was cuz my mare's teeth need to be floated but we can't do it until after the foal is born because she'll need to be given a tranquilizer.

Emily, you can tranquilize and float a pregnant mare's teeth. I actually have the vet coming out on Thursday to do Tali :-) If her teeth are really bad I would go ahead and do it now so she can get all the nourishment she needs.

Alright I'll call my vet and see if she can get out here! Thanks
