Little Hawk Mares / Foals



Weaning your Foal


* Based on individual needs
* Frequent handling




Little Hawk Farm recommends weaning between 4 and 6 months of age depending upon the individual needs of the mare and foal involved. The farm has stalls and paddocks which are safe for handling this event. Whenever possible, foals are placed with other weanlings and often with a babysitter adult. The weanlings are handled at least twice per day. They learn to lead and to accept grooming. We recommend 30-60 days of separation from the mare, depending on the home farm set up.
