Advice on mare needed,
My mare foaled 4 weeks ago and is as far as we know a maiden, She is not interested much in the colt. Doesnt care about him being beside her or keeping him in check and keeps breaking fences/ stable doors to escape leaving him alone or to get wet outside.
She is turned out all day and stabled at night. She is grazing in a fenced paddock next to the other horses. The mare is not intersted in the others when introduced, however the colt is currentley trying to mount a mare that's in season. The colt has been eating/attempting to eat hard feed grass and hay for about a week.
Yesterday she went through a wire fence and the foal followed, The other horses she can see when stabled but they cannot reach her. And when she breaks free she does not end up with them but the oposite direction.
The other horses do not seem to upset her she will happily graze fence by fence with them.
Is there anything I can do to make her become more responsible towards her foal. Should he be weaned early?
