How many of you use supplements while your mares are in foal?

Did you notice any difference in either the mares health or baby ?

Even though I don't know if Penny is pregnant i started to give her this liquid healthy coat. It has extra vitamins A & E & other stuff and some biotin. Her front hooves look terrrible. The farrier is actually overdue a week now. This is the first time her hooves have chipped. The others have no problem just her.

Any thoughts?

I start using supplements 4 months prior to the mare's due date, and continue supplementing through weaning. I use Mare Plus, as well as keeping them on grass and alfalfa hay, Omolene, and Oat Hay pellets. :-)


I've only had three foals so far (expecting 5 in 2009), and this may very well be a coincidence, but... The two mare's that did not get supplemented during pregnancy had much smaller foals, with crooked legs (dams did not have that). They seemed to take longer to get up, and just in general not very strong foals, it took them about a week to start acting totally normal. The one mare that I did supplement had a large, very vigerous filly with straight legs, and she was very active.
