Item Information

Nutrena SafeChoice Mare & Foal is a controlled starch feed for pregnant or lactating mares and growing horses through the second year. Broodmares and their foals need extra love and extra-special nourishment. SafeChoice Mare & Foal horse feed is specifically formulated to give broodmares the enhanced nutrition they need during gestation and lactation. Because good nutrition begins long before birth, transition to SafeChoice Mare & Foal horse feed half way through the pregnancy to promote healthy prenatal development. As your young horse grows, SafeChoice Mare & Foal horse feed provides a careful balance of amino acids and minerals to promote optimum development for the all-important first two years of life.

  • Organic trace minerals to support optimal skeletal development, immune function, and hair coat and hoof quality
  • Guaranteed levels of lysine and methionine to support muscle development and maintenance
  • Controlled starch design to support healthy digestion and help reduce the risk of metabolic concerns
  • Enhanced with antioxidants, including selenium and vitamin E, to support the immune system and help minimize the effects of stress
  • Highly palatable to encourage consumption by foals and smoothes transition during weaning
  • Multi-use formula is ideal for growing horses and pregnant or lactating mares
  • Pellet form promotes consistent intake and prevents sorting of ingredients
  • Same feed for mare and foal allows for an easy transition at weaning time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a firm believer I'm a firm believer in the Mare and foal supplemental feed. I have used it on our last 3 foals. All have been big and healthy. The broodmares dont get drug down from feeding and stay in good flesh. I noticed also when the foals shed off they Are slick and shine.

how much should you feed of this grain, to a mare who is 6 months pregnant? or should I wait to switch her during her last trimester?

Asked by: kaylee2018
Hello, Thanks for the question! You can feed the SafeChoice Mare & Foal feed throughout gestation, and just increase the amount as your mare reaches that last trimester. The feeding rate for the first part of her pregnancy is 0.25-0.5 lbs per 100 lbs of bodyweight, which is 2.5 to 5 lbs per day for a 1,000 lb horse. Once she reaches that last trimester, then it bumps up to 0.5-1.0 lbs per 100 lbs of bodyweight, or 5-10 lbs per day for a 1,000 lb horse. Find the feeding rate in there that maintains her in the correct body condition, along with good quality hay or pasture. Hope that helps, let us know if you have further questions!
