Weaning my baby Saturday!- change of plans- see last post
The plan is to take mama and baby to my friends' ranch, unload baby, close trailer door, take off with mom. I am kind of nervous but I feel it's the safest scenario, since if we keep them both at home I wouldn't trust mom not to jump the fence. I'm still nervous about going cold turkey with my baby. She has never been out with anyone but her mom. My friend will initially keep her in a "common barnyard area" - other horses will be adjacent but not in with her. My friend is a lifelong horse person who has raised many babies. Any experiences weaning this way?
