Foal Care
by: Sue Schembri

Hello to all you Breeders out there! We are going to publish the protocol that we use on our foals and weanlings here in Florida for those who have asked~

Backgrounds and Babies 50313 016

This is not meant to change your veterinarian’s protocol but rather a guideline that we have used thru the years that works for us.   We are constantly researching any new information that comes out as recommended by the AAEP and decide if it fits in with our standard protocol.

2014babies 042

Weanlings:     Weighed and paste wormed with Pyrantel Pamoate or trade name of @Strongid.  We give each foal a minimum of double dose.  This is particularly important in warmer climates where strongyles are problematic. This is done at 30 days and 60 days of age.  

At 90 Days they are given their 1st EWT West Nile vaccination and also first dose of Panacur larvacidal dose.  It is important to weigh these foals each time they are medicated and keep records written down.  

At 120 Days they get their 2nd EWT West Nile Vaccine and their first dose of Ivomectin according to their weight – if ever in doubt better to give a little more wormer than less.  De-wormers are then rotated between Strongid/Panacur and Ivomectin each month thereafter.  Once the foal is weaned we highly recommend a fecal testing to determine if any parasites have slipped by.


We also put each foal on the Strongid CX daily once they are weaned.     If your foal looks potty or the hair is not shedding like it should we recommend fecal testing again.  Our foals are generally weaned at 4++- 5 months of age.  I personally prefer closer to 5 months but the earlier halter foals are sometimes weaned sooner to prepare them for summer futurities and the APHC National Show.

Once our foals are weaned they go into “Basic Baby Training” mode where they learn all the basics of leading, tying, bathing, going on the wash rack and the hot walker.  This is an important time when they should be handled and worked with daily and will have a strong influence on how they react as adults.
