I agree with PeggySue - the sooner you put them all together, the sooner Sparta will learn his manners. I've had 6 foals and most were out with the herd within a week. We kept momma and baby together by themselves for a couple days so they could build their bond a bit, but then it was out with the rest. Baby will learn who to stay away from and Snowflake isn't going to stand around and watch someone kick her foal...she'll protect him from any REAL danger and the others will teach him he's not the king of the pasture.

Unless Snowflake is REALLY slack with her parenting skills, I'd say put them out with the herd.
