Only the Best for Mare and Foal
Every breeder is relieved and joyful when the newborn foal latches on to the mare and begins suckling on her milk source. During pregnancy and lactation, we can provide an important basis of proper nutrition for the mare; that is our hope for a healthy sports companion and a friend for life.
Equilac is an approved broodmare feed, developed on the basis of long-years experiences in thoroughbred breeding.
• well-balanced protein/energy-ratio
• including herbs, ground algae, oils and oleaginous fruits
• rich in essential amino acids
• perfectly balanced content in trace elements
Approx. three months before the mating, the mare’s diet should conta in high-quality vital nutrients, however, the energy supply should be moderate. Supplements with “St. Hippolyt’s ß-Carotene and Garlic” and trace elements (for example MicroVital) enhance her potential to conceive. It is recommended to then continue feeding energy-adapted rations with a well-balanced content in high-quality micronutrients.
Vital nutrients for two
St. Hippolyt's Equilac contains particularly high-quality protein. Besides a well-balanced protein-energy-ratio, all minerals, trace elements and vitamins are included in well-adapted quantities to meet the nutritional requirements and to promote the healthy development of the growing foal. Brewer’s yeast, sprouts, a range of ocean-derived components and other substances rich in vital nutrients sustainably complete the formula.
Barley flakes, maize germs, alfalfa fibres, oat bran, barley germs, oil seed mixture (linseed, sunflower, fennel, black caraway seeds) 6.6%, wheat bran, sugar beet fibres, dried apples, cornflakes, herbs (peppermint, coriander, hibiscus, anise) 2.8%, oat flakes 2%, apple syrup, warm air dried chopped grass, seaweed meal, pea protein, salt, calcium carbonate (maritime and mineral), oil mixture (linseed-, sunflower-, maize germ-, black caraway-oil) 0.8%, brewer‘s yeast, carrots, dicalcium phosphate, magnesium acetate
To supplement the daily ration of forage and/or grass, we recommend gradually replacing the usual amount of concentrates with Equilac from the 8th month of pregnancy.
9th-11th month of pregnancy: approx. 400-500 g per 100 kg body weight per day. The total amount of feed should be divided into several meals. For easy keepers or delicate feeders, adjust the ration accordingly by adding or deducting 10-15 %. Where appropriate, oats may be added to the ration. Special breeds, ponies and easy keepers are recommended to be fed Equilac as a sole concentrate.
1st - 3rd month of lactation: increase the quantity of Equilac to up to 600 g per 100 kg body weight per day, as the highest milk yield is expected in the second month of lactation.
From the 5th month of lactation: gradually reduce the amount of Equilac. Stop feeding the broodmare feed as soon as the foal is weaned.
