Tips on Feeding the Orphan or Rejected Foal
*Provide the colostrum to the orphan or rejected foal before offering the milk powder in solution
*It is best to provide Foals First® Milk Replacer powder in solution, in a bucket for the foal to drink
*However, if a nipple is used to get the foal to drink the colostrum and begin to drink the milk, make sure the opening is at least ½” wide to assure adequate colostrum and milk flow
*Never force the foal’s head into a bucket
*The bucket should be a contrasting color to the wall to make it easy for the foal to find

Introducing the foal to milk
*Initially, on day one, warm milk slightly to encourage consumption
*Using a shallow plastic bowl, raise the bowl to the foal’s muzzle while they are sucking your finger
*Slowly remove your finger after they begin to drink
*Repeat until the foal is drinking from the bowl on their own
*Once the foal learns to drink from the bowl, put the milk into a small bucket and hang it securely on the wall at shoulder height of the foal.
*From this point forward mix powder with cool water to limit over consumption
