Great Start for Foals, Minus the Smell

I supplemented my filly's diet with this after she was about a month old. She would NOT eat it at first. I stuck my face near it and realized that it smelled awful, like PlayDoh. I got creative and sprinkled Farnam's Apple Electrolytes on it and now she loves the stuff. She is growing fast and strong and when she's done with this bag, I'll probably transition her to Buckeye's "Growth" feed.

foal starter

colt eating it with no issues. Fed dry and colt would drink water and make it into a slurry feed. Still ate it up. Colt when started on it was less than 2 months old. Still eating it and also giving other colt that is on a mare some to get her started eating grain and hope to help not pull mare down more.

We have a mini foal that was rejected by Momma and we are feeding Ultra 24 milk replacer every 3 hours we bought the buck eye milk starter and put in a bowl a small amount after two weeks she is nibbling it when the bottles dont come our hope is at night she will eat this. We baby her not letting her be in rain the main think feeding a baby foal is not to when you bottle feed to elevate the bottle if the milk goes in the lungs it will die from pneumonia keep the bottle on the level let the baby suck .BE CAREFUL AND HOPEFULLY AFTER A COUPLE WEEKS YOUR FOAL WILL START EATING BUCKEYE BUT BOTTLE FEEDING IS WHAT IS NEEDING FOR A LONG TIME IF YOU LOVE YOUR BABY AND WE DO

No one will eat this

I bought this for my orphan foal who lost her mom at birth. I can't get her to touch it. She eats everything but this. I tried giving it to the older horses and they all hate it.

Della - abandoned at birth

We recommend using this in combination with Buckeye powdered mares milk for orphan or abandoned foals. Our foal nibbles at it, we hang a bucket so she has it available at all times. The bag has lasted her first 2 months and more left. The price is very reasonable to help ensure she gets proper nutrition.

Picky foal loves it!

I recently lost my mare and her foal was 2 mo. old. He wasn't wanting to drink the milk replacer. He loves the pellets!
