I waswondering in the opinions and experience of the members here what is the best, least stressfull way to wean baby off mama. I have a colt and a filly both nine months old, still suckling that need to be weaned. The colt's mama is losing weight too fast now, she has bad teeth, due for a float end of month, but would like to ensure all resources she recieves now go to her and only her.
Is it better to remove them completely, put mama as far away as possible, obviously keeping them with other older horses they know and trust. Or is gradual weaning better? I unfortunately do not have two secure enough camps next to each other where they can see each other, but not succkle thru the fence.
