Hope it's ok to post this here.
Have taken the plunge today and taken Obi (9 months) away from his Mum. He is really starting to drag her down and after lots of plans which have fallen through for one reason and another, we decided just to shut him in the stable and put her back in the field. On advice I gave her a bit of sedative and actually they both seem to be coping very well with the odd call but none of the screaming and throwing themselves around I was expecting.
My questions are firstly, how long can I expect to leave them apart before Kizzy's milk dries up? Her udder looks very full tonight and I know I have to restrict her intake of hard feed until she stops producing milk. As she barely eats her haylage, I don't want to leave her too long without much food (gave her hifi and sugar beet tonight).
Can anyone suggest how long before I can let him out of the stable safely? I don't want to put them back together for a while as I don't want him to try to suckle. I have a place I can take Kizzy away but not till next weekend...I don't want to shut Obi up for a week.
I have other horses but the fields are separated with electric rope and I don't want him to try running through or over them!

I am sure I will have more questions but any help with those will be appreciated, thank you.

Does Obi have a friend?

Hi Jane
no not yet, we have a friend arranged but can't get him here for a couple of weeks due to problems.
I didn't want to leave it for 2 more weeks because of Kizzy's condition.
I have a rising 2 year old percheron filly he could go with but she is 16.2 and I am a bit worried she might be too much for him.
