If I do not take the bucket out directly after she finishes her grain she'll still do it & the babies take note.
I would LOVE to wean the babies now but Hijinx would have a come apart. Tribby is more than fine to be weaned but I'd like their "family" to stay together until Hijinx is 3 months. He gets pretty upset when we take his "Auntmom" out to work with her. (I've decided its high time that mare becomes a riding horse) Zavrina is starting to look a little pulled down now so I've put Molly's old nursing bra on her this week to 'wean' Tribby without removing the babies. Then in another six weeks I'll actually take the kids away for a couple of months. Theyll have plenty of time to learn all sorts of things because in the mean time they hang out with Zavrina, Carl & Image - the three naughty horses!
