It’s weaning time at Sterling Equine.
We are in the process of weaning our 2020 foals from their moms in order to take AQHA approved pictures and pull hair for DNA. We use this time to imprint on the foals and halter break. We get them used to humans, give them lots of love, and get them ready to move to their new pasture before the new year.
This is always a fun time to bring customers and friends.
We love sharing these moments with our customers and friends, because who doesn’t love babies?
The foals are always at their sweetest during this time. They love to nuzzle you and beg for butt scratches. We believe this kind of socialization is extremely important when they are young. It teaches them that humans are not so scary, that they will be rewarded for good behavior, but it also teaches them to respect boundaries. This is vital information for a young horse to learn before they turn 2 years old and start their training.
We are looking forward to sharing our 2020 foals, once they are registered, with you all on social media.
