the website is www.horsingaroundllc.com ..it is called the ezee wean halter...please tell me what you think..I think my concern is leaving the halter on..I have 4 acres with wood posts, t posts and no clib horse fence..they claim it will break away, but I worry..I was hoping someone on here had hear of it or maybe even tried it..

I have never heard of it but after looking at the website I personally would not use it. I know they say it's harmless but I don't like gimmicks of any kind and I also would be worried about the halter getting caught on something.

noahsark-
Woody is well over a year. I saw him march out of the barn on Sunday, he had his ears back...walked right up to Mom, she cocked her leg and let him nurse. It was the first nurse I've seen in weeks. I have seen her not let him too....
My take on this is that it is not hurting him...and not hurting her...and they were separated for the emotional weaning....so...so what? We all just look and laugh...and make fun of him.

Jane, That has to look really funny...big ol' Woody nursing on his mom. Does he have to get on his knees to reach, LOL!

I can't let my yearlings nurse because Draft horses really get pulled down by their foals and they need to recuperate after weaning. You wouldn't think they would because they are so big bodied to begin with, but they are huge milk producers and their foals are large. I've been lucky in that we only have to separate them for about two months and they can go back out with the herd with no problems.

Noahsark: I personally wouldn't use the halter because my pasture situation would be too dangerous to leave a halter on a young one like that. I've used the breakaway halters (on adult horses) and found they don't always breakaway all that easily and your foal could injure itself. Especially dangerous are the ones with just a short leather strap at the side that is supposed to break. I've found the hardware breaks before that does. Not good.

It's tough to wean the youngster when you only have the two horses. They are naturally going to want to be together. If Mom is a good disciplinarian, you may be alright. If she isn't, you are going to have to work extra hard to socialize that colt and let him know YOU'RE the alpha. Best of luck to you, whatever you decide.

Thanks for the input guys...I really appreciate it..I am noticing, after I ordered it I put them together thinking it would be just a few days till it got here, she lets him nurse sometimes, but others not, and there are 3 other arabs out there that are aged 2, 7, 23..Tucker does hang out with them mostly..so I guess if you are arent worried about it, I wont..The lady at horsin around said send back w/o using and she would credit my card..very good service, I was worried she may make me take a credit..since that what her site says..She said that w/o a gelding or stallion out there to stimualte the mare she may be loking to tucker to arouse her..I thought that was crazy..but get this..the first day I put him out, he ran to nurse, he took a few sucks then left..mama walked back over to him..pawed for 2 minutes at him untill he nursed again, after he nursed, and left..she ran over to him and circled him angrily for about 3 times then made him nurse..when he did she licked his genitals...so it seems maybe my Miss Beauty is a incestual whore!! LOL!!
Jane your right though, they can be seperated w/o any problems, emotionally..and she has plenty of weight on her..sooo..Ill keep you posted, and thanks..
What do you all think about that though?

Sometimes but not always. I have seen 2 yr olds that are still nursing off of mom. It makes it hard to train the foal and it starts to wear on mom making her lose weight.
