Weanling 1 Some foals are just arriving while others are almost old enough to be weaned. Do you know the nutritional needs of your foal whether you are anxiously awaiting her arrival, enjoying watching him frolic in the paddock or preparing for the next big step of weaning? It's best to gather all the information you need and be prepared for whatever stage of life your foal is experiencing.
