Taking the Stress Out of Weaning

June 28, 2011

Posted by Dr. Clair Thunes in Nutrition

mare and foal Heading into summer many of you will be contemplating the process of weaning your foals. Typically foals are weaned between 4-6 months of age and the process used is often dictated by the facilities available. Careful planning will reduce stress and set your foal up for success. Obviously the biggest change for your foal will be the loss of contact with its mother followed by the change in diet. At birth the foal’s sole source of nutrition is provided by the mare’s milk which at its peak can amount to 3% of her body weight per day. Over time the foal’s digestive tract matures.

This provides the foal with the ability to start digesting more complex feeds such as pasture, quality hay or some other supplemental feed.
