Okay, Well Allie had Silverado on 3-5-11 and he is gaining weight great but Allie dropped real quick so she gets good feed and O&A hay three times a day. She is picking up weight great however my concern is that when I feed them Allie pins her ears and makes Silverado wait to eat. I have not seen her attack him and he seems to know what she wants so he stays away while she eats.

Is this something thats going to turn nasty on me real quick? She still mothers him and wants to know where he is and what he's doing it's just around feed. And I do have a creep feeder for Silverado. Just wanting oppinions.

I have mares that won't allow their foals to nurse while they are eating their "goodies" The foals learn to patiently wait until Mom is done. I wouldn't worry.

Thanks so much. She's not been terrible and Silverado knows to wait, I'll just keep a close eye on them. I hope /and think the creep feeder will help.

We have a mare like that....she wouldn't share "her" feed with her foal! Took awhile to realize it, but thank goodness we had "grandpa" in the same bunch, so we just started letting the foal go in and eat grain with grandpa! lol when he would come out he would go "wash it down" with some momma milk! Even when we tried giving him his own bucket in his momma's stall, momma would just eat all of hers and then run him off of his!! I will say this...that foal was one of the best wellbehaved horses we ever raised. Momma taught him manners! :-)

My mare was like that with her first but only with him. It DID turn nasty almost overnight and we had to wean the poor bugger at 4 months, it ended up being the best thing for him because she wasnt letting him drink properly as well as stealing his food.
Jill - it had the opposite effect on this fella he was well behaved as a youngster but got out the agression to make up for it as he got older!

I always found it funny that foal number one wasnt allowed to do anything, foal number two got away with murder!

i have found that if you put a board across the corner of the stall where the foal can get under but the mare can't, it makes it easier to feed them separately. Move moms feeder up where baby can't reach it, and put his in the corner where only he can get it. it should keep him out of her feed, and her out of his and out of his space so he can eat. If you dont have the room to do this, you can simply move baby out at dinner time, and feed him just outside the stall door, so mom can still see him.

Thanks for all your guys' help and thoughts. Silverado and Allie are doing better now other than Silverado being the size of a 4 month old at 2 months old everythings going good. lol.
