Daily allowance: Dilute 2 measures in 1 litre warm water. Shake well until the mixture is smooth. Give the milk to the foal at around 35°C.

Adjust the quantities and the frequency gradually as follows:

  • Day 1: 8 litres of milk per day (1 litre every 3 hours),
  • Day 10: 12 litres of milk per day (2 litres every 4 hours or 25% of live weight of reconstituted milk per day)
  • 1 month: 15 litres of milk per day (3 litres every 5 hours).
