Will mares feed foals other than theirs? Now Im curious!
I know, curiousity killed the cat, but mine is pretty much unending.
In another thread a poster mentioned other foals following a mare other than mom to the food.
Cats, dogs, mice, wolves, and other animals will often nurse ANOTHER animals offspring in addition to theirs. I am not sure if its product of colony living or hormones, or what.
So Im wondering how mares react to the foals of others? Mares seem to be a bit testy lol. So do foals approach another milk source? If so, do the mares allow it?
Examples would be great!
