Low Stress Weaning

At Hunter Stallion Station we believe the weaning process does not have to be stressful for the mare or foal.  Transitioning into the separation over a minimum 5 day time period is best for both, and proper nutrition to stabilize the gut should also be considered.

Hunter Stallion Station will board your mare and foal and provide 24/7 surveillance.   Your foal will be halter broken and receive preliminary ground training.  Other services can include vaccines, worming as needed, and fecal egg counts for the mare.
