New Born Foals

That's exactly what I do- as soon as the mare is ok, and the foal is ok,
the mare gets dewormed. 
We don't vaccinate our normal foals until the age of 4 months or so. 
And if you combine the Ivermectin worming in the mare with a continuous
Strongid C2x you can actually get away with not deworming the foal for
much longer than a month. When I tried this experiment, I didn't have to
deworm my foals until about December, at age 6 months. 
This would of course depend on what kind of program you have at your
farm. This works well for me.
