    A recent article in The Horse (www.thehorse.com) supports what many breeders (me definitely) have known all along, that weaning is easiest when the mare and foal are out of sight and sound. Read here for more:

    I had hoped to wean my guy in early October, but he is only 4-1/2 months old. I see the weaning dates (per the Almanac) for late October/November have a run of 8-10 days.
    What would be the best days in that run?

    October 31st - November 3rd
    November 27th - 30th

    Definitely wait as the six month age is BEST for mare and foal.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm hoping to do it this coming weekend. He will be 5-1/2 months and they are both very independent of each other.
