Weaning normally occurs from mid February through to mid March, depending on age groups. It’s designed to be a no conflict, relaxed experience for both mares and foals. They are both sedated herbally. In this time the weaners are boxed and taught to accept being caught,close human contact, led,groomed, tied up and have their legs picked up.
The weaners are trimmed by the farrier. They are weighed,drenched and Kim will then DNA test them after mare returns have been processed.
On the completion of the 10 days the weaners are turned out in groups of 7 into a large paddock with a nanny mare.
Owners will receive a short video and photo’s of their weaners.
Weaning rate is $550.00 GST exclusive
