    Re: [RC] [RC] Udderware Weaning Bra - Nancy Mitts

    The only thing I could think of when I saw it was, "How do you keep the foals from getting their legs through the straps?" Of course our horses are always outside, but they're always playing jump on mom.
    It sure would desensitize a horse that wants to buck when touched "wrong", though.
    Weaning just hasn't been that traumatic at our place. Just take the mare out & leave the youngster in it's "home" lot. Keep the mare in the next field where they can see and talk to each other. Of course, we usually don't wean until 6-8 months so they're getting pretty independant by then.

    The January issue of Equus features the "Udderware Weaning Bra" in the Product Line section - this is advertised as eliminating the stress/trauma of separating mare and foal at weaning by using the contraption to prevent the foal from continuing to nurse. Anybody out there ever tried one of these? Heard of anyone who has? Has any thoughts/opinions on the matter? If nothing else, it certainly looks creative!!
