How to separate mom and 1 yr old baby.
The horses we ride belong to a friend. The pony has a baby who is nearing a year old. We would love to separate them for riding and training, but if I lock up the baby, she literally breaks through the fences to come see her mom. She is also still nursing some. How can we teach baby to chill out alone so we can ride without her galloping all around us. My five year old rides her mom and it's not safe to have baby loose with her riding mom at the same time. Should I find someone to board her for a month or so to teach them to be separate and wean her? I would love to ride with my daughter on then two adult horses without baby making a stink.
