Hi - I haven't been on this board since early '06 and I'm not sure if this is the correct place, but I have a question.

I have a mare that foaled in May '06. The filly was weaned the end of October, with removing the mare from our farm for two months, then kept separated until the end of this past March. The mare was not bred back. About 5-6 weeks ago, I noticed the mare allowing the filly to nurse. I talked with a breeder who told me to put vaseline w/cayenne pepper on her teats. I thought this took care of the situation, but a couple of nights ago I noticed the filly nursing again. I checked the mare and was actually able to express what looked like milk. What's up with THAT and is it possible for her to start lactating again after all this time?

Wow! I have heard that a mare can start producing milk again after being weaned for a month or two but eight months!! I guess your filly is a "momma's girl" LOL and the mare loves her just as much!

No kidding, this mare just loves all babies. Maybe I should lease her out as a nurse mare!

I had a broodmare that i left open, and she began to produce milk and could have milked a foal EASILY!!! I think some mares just like being a mommy so much theyll make milk regardless...you may want to consider using her as a broodmare in your area...alot of people are looking for them and not alot are available.
