Hi everyone! My maiden med pony mare is expecting her first foal. 340 days is Mar 6th. I’m her breeder. I have her mom, a small pony. Her mom foaled all 3 of her foals at or around 320 days. All fully cooked.
I’m trying to figure out the best timing for this mare’s pre foaling vaccines if she follows her mom’s record.
She’s a pony and they tend to, but not always, go a bit early in general.
I know vaccines should be given 30 days out but is there a longer range that works?
I’m worried if:
- I give too early and she goes over her date then the foal won’t have a good IGG.
- if she goes early and I give the vaccines too close and they haven’t kicked in enough.
What time frame would you give this mare her vaccines to be safe?
Thanks in advance for your informed opinions.
