  Title On lactation and associated behaviour in natural herd of horses Type Journal Article
  Year 1984 Publication Anim Behav Abbreviated Journal Hans Klingels Equine Reference List  
  Volume 32 Issue Pages 255-263  
  Abstract Developmental changes in time spent suckling and related mother-foal behaviour are described in an unmanaged herd of Camargue horses. Male foals spent about 40% more time suckling than females during the first 8 weeks. Body weight did not differ between the sexes but time-budgets did: males grazed less and were more active. If pregnant, the typical multiparous mare nursed her foals for 3540 weeks, males and females alike, and weaned them 15 weeks before the next foaling. Primiparae lactated longer and weaned closer to the next foaling by 5 weeks. The mares played an active role in regulating the time spent suckling in early, and particularly in late lactation.
