Bird I would really like to hear your reasoning behind milking the mare.
It's more just a curiosity thing than anything.
My court date is tomorrow, and I am hoping that if I get him back sooner than later I would be able to allow him to start nursing again and get the extra nutrition from my mare that most 3 month old foals receive. However, if the process takes longer than I hope I will stop and just let nature take its course at this point. Honestly I have just been doing it until tomorrow gets here and see what happens. Then I will reassess the situation and go from there.
