Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

Our filly is one eel old. Can she chew this?
Answer by ChewyMay 05, 2022
This feed is specifically designed for foals under three months of age.

Could this be used as a milk pellet for baby goats to start transitioning to grain?
Answer by ChewyFeb 10, 2023
The Foal Starter should be OK for a baby goat transitioning to grain. Be sure to keep in mind the feeding directions – for a horse, 1 lb. of Foal Starter per 100 lbs. of body weight is recommended. A baby goat won’t weigh anywhere near 100 lbs., so reduce the recommended feeding rate accordingly (i.e. if the goat weighs 10 lbs. (10% of 100), feed about 45 grams (10% of 1 lb., or 10% of 454 g) of Foal Starter.)

Can this product be fed to nursing mares?
Answer by ChewyJun 03, 2020
This horse feed is suitable for all nursing, orphaned or rejected foals.

Could I use this on a young goat?
Answer by ChewyMay 11, 2020
This food is intended for horses.

Saved my Orphan

Foal lost momma at 3 weeks old. We used the powdered milk replacer and the pellets and have a big, happy, healthy weanling!

Weanling Recovery

We have a weanling who became quite ill. The foal starter feed was a key element in his recovery. Thanks!

Foal Starter - Beneficial to young foals

We always introduce foal starter to our young weanling foals. It gives them a boost of vitamins and minerals and gently starts them on a feeding schedule. The foal growth in bone and substance is amazing within just a few weeks. This is a must feed to benefit weanlings.
