A preliminary study of two methods of weaning foals



A preliminary study of two methods of weaning foals



Applied Animal Behaviour Science 12(1-2): 177-181



The reactions of 8 pony foals weaned individually into stalls were compared with those of 14 weaned into stalls by pairs. Blood samples were taken just before weaning, 15 min after weaning, and 6 and 24 h after weaning, and analyzed for cortisol concentration. Each pony was observed for six 15-minute periods: before weaning, immediately after weaning, and at 6, 12 and 24 h and 1 week after weaning.
