This course will cover some of the important factors to consider when raising a foal. The course begins with an overview of critical knowledge a breeder needs to know regarding the first 48 hours of a foal’s life including the stages of delivery, respiratory conditions, nursing, and what to evaluate in a physical exam. Information on routine health care, foal health problems, foal behaviors, as well as the nutritional requirements of a growing horse is also detailed.
