From birth to two years of age horses have special feeding considerations. These include evaluation of the mares milk, introduction to solid foods, weaning, and changing dietary needs including, fiber, energy, protein, and mineral requirements. Just as with adults however this requires an ability to accurately judge the overall health of the growing foal including body condition scoring and the ability to judge the quality of forages and concentrates.
