Directions for Use
To aid in maximum growth and development, add 2 ounces (four (4) heaping tablespoons) of Grow Colt to daily ration for each foal. Continue feeding daily throughout the foal's first year of development. Provides 27 important vitamin and mineral nutrients.
FEEDING BEFORE WEANING
To avoid setbacks resulting from weaning and to speed early development, the foal should be given some supplementary feed while still nursing the mare. Usually the foal can start eating small amounts of feed when he is two to three weeks old. Creep feeding - in which the newborn foal can feed on grain and hay separately from the mare - is highly recommended.
FEEDING AFTER WEANING
Foals are usually weaned at four to six months of age. At weaning, separate the foal from the mare and feed him 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. of hay per 100 lbs. of body weight. Also feed 2 ounces of Grow Colt daily. The weaning period is the most critical time for feeding the growth supplement. Similarly the grain ration is quite critical. Three suggested grain rations for the weanling foal are outlined below:
