Im going to need to go to thread stalkers rehab if you keep picking up pregnant mares!
*LOL* Im going to need to go to *grade horse* rehab if I don't stop! This will make 4 grade horses in my pasture! But in all honesty, I wouldnt trade Dusty or Evie for anything in the world... Lady is just a project (for now, Im sure she and baby will be my next permanent attachment)... but I love her too, and my kids and I can actually do more than look at her. She is really sweet.
That brings me to another question. I am sending Dusty to the trainer so he can break her for me after weaning Evie. How long do you guys think I should wait to wean her. I've heard different opinions... 3,6, and even 9 months. I have no idea whats best... I do know evie has already been eating out of Dustys feed bucket, nibbling alfalfa, and drinking out of the water trough... usually I try to distract and play with her while mom eats, but as soon as I walk out she's over there sneakin bites. She's so cool
Everybody agree this mare is going to hold out 2 more weeks? I have "maiden mare" experience now...but Since she's not maiden, and no horse in the world can be a dramatic as Dusty was... Im kinda afraid I wont see the signs.
