What is the earliest a horse will produce milk?
When a mare is in foal they typically dont begin to produce collostrum (what the foal will drink until the true 'milk' is created a few days or week after it is born) until 1-3 days before the foal is born. Some mares will produce days, and even possible weeks in advance. It is also possible to not produce the first milk until after the foal is born. ...
What is the earliest in pregnancy you will produce breast milk?
