“When a foal is weaned away from it’s mother, it can be pretty traumatic. The first day I trailered this four month old colt home, he was no exception. Even with his congenial five year old big brother in the adjoining pen and a couple of mares close by, he was down right angry and nothing, and I mean nothing, was going to comfort him. I hung out in the large pen and sketched for a while watching him move, listening to his pitiful whinnies until he was hoarse. Poor fella, he was going to have to work this one out all by himself. Yep, he had the ‘Weaning Day Blues'”.
