I have also read articles on ezee-wean halter…

QUESTION: 

I need your advice. We have a 8 month old colt (male) who is still nursing. We were checking into having the colt boarded for weaning for a month and then back home. We only have the Mare and colt, no other horses. I have also read articles on ezee-wean halter which allows the Mare and colt to be together during weaning and not the anxiety for both of them. What is your opinion on this. Also any information on when to have him fixed. thank you

ANSWER: 

Hi Patsy, You need to wean him now. You are letting him stay on the mare twice as long as he should be. Do not bother with any gimmicks on weaning. Put him in one pen, and the mare in another pen. Now is also the time to castrate him.
