When we bought our pony last year she ended up being prego. Our place isn't really set up for foaling and weaning and all of that so I hadn't until yesterday at 5pm. Lexi (the baby) has gotten hugely disrespectful and runs all over her mama and has started with us.
I have mama up for sale and when I took her out of the stall Lexi started rearing and forgot all of her manners (she has been separated before while we ride and never acted like this) So I said enough.
I put mama out front which is basically our front and back yard (the horses mess it up so bad especially when it is raining which is what I was trying to avoid) Mama could care less. She looks relieved poor girl. Lexi on the other hand screamed all night long and has screamed all morning long. I am sure the neighbors don't appreciate it but I am glad I did it. It was well past time.
