Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

why do ppl have to interfere so much??? Im sorry...but I think its the mother's job to dry off the foal etc...that's how they bond...everyone has to jump right in there like she isn't there...maybe im old school...but it kinda bugs me..

Watched a birth last night... The actual birth part went smoothly, but then mama didn't want to let the little guy nurse. They ended up haltering her and holding her still while struggling to get baby lined up to nurse. Is it common for a mare to be that difficult with nursing initially? Kinda seemed like she didn't want to be too close to baby in general after she'd cleaned him off. Seemed kinda strange to me.

Some mamas, especially if they're maidens don't want baby tugging on the super teats. Its also possible she was still trying to pass all the after birth etc.

And it can be uncomfortable for them. Others will sometimes reject their foals for unknown reasons, and yet others just are not very motherly.
