Tia is a maiden mare, who's main discipline was eventing. Throughout her gestation she was fed on a combination of Mare-Care and Stamm 30. Rebecca contacted us to let us know how Tia was getting on post foaling.
"I just wanted to let you know that my mare gave birth to a lovely colt yesterday morning. My mare has been on Saracen Mare-Care and Stamm 30 throughout the pregnancy and has looked fantastic all the way through. Since the birth of baby Henry there have been as many comments about how wonderful she looks as there have been about the foal. She birthed easily and both mare and foal are doing very well."
Mare-Care is a high quality mix developed specifically for broodmares and provides a variety of energy sources and quality nutrients, helping to ensure the mare maintains her weight and condition throughout pregnancy and lactation. To aid in fertility Mare-Care contains elevated levels of Vitamin E, which also ensures optimal antibody transfer from the mare to the foal. To support colostrum quality a balanced ratio of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids are also included, as well as BioMos which attracts and neutralizing bacteria, helping to support the immune system.
