During the first seven or eight months of gestation, the fetus grows very slowly approximately 0. Dry mares in early gestation can basically be fed like any other mature, idle horse. However, during the last three — four months of pregnancy, the unborn foal begins to grow and develop more rapidly. During the last 90 days of pregnancy, the fetus gains approximately 1 lb per day.
This reduction in forage intake, coupled with the increased nutritional demands of the pregnancy, leads to a need for mares to be supplemented with a nutritionally balanced concentrated grain mix to meet total nutrient requirements. Even in situations where forage alone is maintaining mares in acceptable body condition, it is important that they receive quality concentrate supplementation.
While good quality forage may be able to provide sufficient calories to maintain body condition of the mare, other nutrients such as protein, vitamins and minerals, will be deficient. Just because a mare is in good body condition and carrying adequate body fat does not guarantee proper foal development.
Research has shown that foal birth weight can be negatively affected when mares are not fed adequate protein during late gestation, even when the mares are maintained in a fleshy condition. Even when mares are fed high protein forage, such as alfalfa, the diet can be deficient in important amino acids. Mares in late gestation should be fed a grain mix or supplement containing quality protein sources that will help meet amino acid requirements for optimal foal development.
