My haflinger mare had her foal on March 25th. For the first couple of weeks she was a great mom. Now she seems disinterested and disconnected. She wonders off from the baby, out of site, when the baby calls she does not respond. She gets annoyed when the baby tries to nurse but is allowing it as the baby doesn't give up. Is this normal? How old should they be before I put the baby in with another foal? Anybody have this experience?

Leslie,
My one mare would be similar. But she raised two foals on her own with no company and no away time, so this year she is with another mare and foal and lets the new mare,who is a maiden, do an awful lot of babysitting. I have gone to get my mare from the field and take her into the barn and gone back to get her baby. Her foal enjoys hanging out with the other foal who doesn't like leaving her mom. Stella is enjoying her first year not having to constantly raise her baby 24/7 with no breaks. They do love each other, but one is as independant as the other. Mine was born March 10th, BTW.
