My mare is due to foal. I only have one broodmare. I have the 05 filly who would love to have more company. Question is once my mare foals would it be wise to keep last years filly separate or could she become the playmate of this years foal. How old - I'm thinking a couple months for baby to get big enough to run with big sis? Would my 05 filly then try to nurse again? I wouldn't think that would be wise to allow or is it a big deal? Any advice gladly heard. Thanks.

Jennifer,
we allow last years baby to run with mom and new foal. Normally mom will establish that she has a new babe to care for. As long as she has been weaned...you may notice in the future that she may try to nurse and after the new foal has become a few months old she may let last years nurse if she has a strong bond there, but under most conditions the mare will care for the new foal only. It is natural in the wild for the last years foal to still be in the herd.

Cool, thanks Kim. It's kind of what I wanted, but was not sure if it would be too much stress on mom.
