mare still making milk after weaning
My mare, Sonya, is still producing milk even after the foal was weaned. They were weaned the first week of August.
I was riding Sonya last night, and when I finished and was untacking her, I noticed that she was dripping milk. I got some out, and it is white, like when my foal was nursing.
Is it normal that she is still lactating after this long? She cannot see the foal at all, considering they are on other sides of the road and trees block the view, and are stalled in different barns.
Is there anything that I could give her? Or should I just leave her be?
