Question Was she weaned to early??????? :S

I bought Rayne in Janurary, she was 8 months old when i took her in... and the otherday i witnessed her do the strangest thing..... she walked up to our gelding and shoved her nose between his legs to where she would find milk on her mother... i have been keeping an eye on her, and shes been doing this quite often... was she weaned to early? if so are there any supplements I can give her? as shes obviously lacking something...

Was she with her dam up until you bought her? If yes, then no, she was not weaned too early.

My trainer has always weaned at 4 months. Babies seem fine with that.
