I just bring home a mare and her three old filly. The mare is dried up but the filly still try to nurse. They have never been apart what is the best way to do this?

Get them each a companion and seperate them where they can't see or hear each other. Do not put them in a barbed wire fenced area to do this as they are both very likely to run the fence and test it a few good times. How old is the mare? older mares tend to not wean their colts like they should.

The lady don't know anything about horse and I have no ideal why she even bred her. Thank you Jenni I have a 2yr old gelding that I think I will put out with the filly. Her mother is 11 yrs old.

Mom should have weaned the filly herself but beware of a future problem with this mare. She may not wean her foals. Your mare is a little young, usually its late teens and mares in their 20's that continue to allow foals to nurse. The gelding sounds like a great companion for her. Good luck. Its a hard task your tackling.!!!! i'll help all I can

Thank you so much for the help I have never dealt with a horse not being wean this late in life. Well the mother "joan" is handing it alot better then the filly. The Filly "pearl" end up kicking the gelding in the chest and knee so I try put her in with a 20yr old blind gelding and she take to him alot better but she has been scream like we are killing her. It going on a week I just hope think will start getting better.

Things should start to get better for you soon. So keep up the good work. If you have a round pen and can do some ground work with Pearl it may help her bond with you, or at the very least preocupy her some so she dont mind being away from mom. Any thing thats helps her build confidence will be benificial to her as well.

Keep at it its a slow but sure process. Sounds like she has no confidence in herself so i'd just keep round penning and loving on her.
