Re: pregnant mare feeding switch?

Greetings Amber,

I'm glad you've got a plan in place.

You can order Nutra Flax on my website, if you like. The shipping is free and it is guaranteed fresh. Here is the link:

I would be delighted to sign and personalize a copy of my book for you. Simply go to my book's website and click on the Order page:

All the best,

Thank you so much for your time, sorry it took so long to respond (my computer went haywire).

We agreed with the previous owner that weaning could happen any time they wish, as it is their baby and we don't mind if she stays at their farm until the foal is ready to be off but they're happy with 5 months.

I have not been able to find nutra flax anywhere, but I'll keep up my search.

I'll be getting your manual soon! How do I get a signed copy?
