For those of you who regularly read our blogs, you would have already read that “Reckless”, a 20 year old mare belonging to our nurse Nic, is pregnant. She is due on approximately 28 October this year. She is currently about 170 days into her pregnancy. In the photo above she is at around 165 days.
The last 3 months of a mare’s pregnancy is when most of the growth occurs, and is a time when the feed intake needs to significantly increase.
We are happy to report that all is going really well so far for “Reckless” and we are all very excited about the prospect of a new addition (especially Nic!).
We will post more photos as the pregnancy progresses.
