I have a mini-donkey Jenny and her 5 1/2 month old jack. The Jenny was starved most of her pregnancy and then I got her 6 weeks before she gave birth. Since she has been nursing the last 5 months she has not gained much weight. With winter around the corner I think she needs to start putting on some weight. Her son is healthy as can be and growing like a weed. Since they will live together for life I am just going to fence wean until her milk dries up and then put them back together.
How long can I expect for it to take for her milk to dry up?
