Half a Haffie is better than no Haffie at all...

He should be all the way shed out in a couple more weeks...

My husband is so glad you don't live near me. Because now you've made him the perfect baby for me to raise to my own trail riding standards.

Love the inner tube technique. I used it to teach BF to tie. Worked great.

Thanks,

I didn't think that Stewie would lose out on any development by being done early. Some people argue that early weaning gives more height and less bulk, and that would suit me.

I know you have weaning Stewie on your mind too, but I think you mean gelding here.

Speaking of which, are you taking this opportunity (his brain surgery) to wean him at the same time? Just wondering...

OOPs, yup Face I HAVE had weaning on my mind, but in this case I did mean gelding

It was a no brainer decision for Stewie, obviously not stallion material, well ahead of the growth curve, plenty of substance, no need to wait.

As to weaning, well as you know I was worried about Bert and the fact that Stewie was draining the weight off of her, but was trying to balance that with the fact that I believe that babies need their Mommas for more than just nutritional needs. Over the last few weeks I've managed to take Bert from this



To this



So the big push for early weaning faded. Current plan is to wait 3 weeks and then wean Stewie in with the yearlings and throw them out with some mares who will teach them some respect
