It's different for every animal, but typically, babies do wean themselves. I have animals and though most wean themselves, sometimes you have to separate the baby from the mother for a period of time and then you can put the baby back in. At least it's easy to do that with guinea pigs...
Usually people will wean foals from 6 to 9 months of age. but it is possible to wean a baby horse (foal) at 3 months old... i wouldn't wean them before 6 months of age because it can cause the baby to get ill and not grow properly. but i bought a horse from a man, a mare with a "baby" at her side, the baby was a little over 2 YEARS old and had… Read More
It is better to slowly wean kids off of their mothers, separate them for a couple of hours the first week. Then slowly increase the number of hours you separate them. Most farmers will just wean them by completely removing the kids and mothers as most females will already have naturally weaned the kids.
When the kit is about 10-12 weeks old, it is safe to wean them from their mother.
You should not wean wild kits (baby rabbits) because they are wild. They will naturally wean themselves.
In domestic situations many foals are weaned at four to six months old. In feral and wild herds however many foals are not weaned until they are eight months to a year old on average. It is in the best interest of domestic horses to let the foal nurse until at least six months of age and many mares will naturally wean their own foals if they are bred again.
you can wean them when they are about 6 months old.
Why are we advised not to wean a baby before they are 17 weeks old?
Most foals nurse right up until they are weaned... generally at between four and eight months of age. It depends on the horse and when the owner wants to wean the foal.

No less than six month but don't let it go over 10 month then its hard to break them normally the mother horse knows when they need to be weaned

Ideally, a mother should try to wean her child from breast-feeding by the time the baby is one year old.

In my opinion, the mare will know the time to wean him much better than we do. Many domestic horses are weaned at about 6 months. However, in the wild (when the mare decides when to wean), foals will suckle for a year or more. It has actually been proven that foals weaned early are more likely to develop vices, like biting, rearing, stricking, kicking, etc. So, you can wean the horse at 6 months… Read More

Do you mena when you are weaning them? Yes definitely wean bucks to one cage and does to another at 8 weeks of age. By 3 months they each should be separated into cages of their own because bucks and does will start to fight their litter mates.
Many people have different opinions of this. Some wean as young as 3 months old. Some will wait until the colt/filly is 6 months old..or older. It mainly depends on if you are selling the baby, using the mother horse for things such as trailriding, competition, etc. It is all up to the individual.
Yes, it just wont be easy. I would not. They need to be with their mother so they will grow properly. Most breeders wean their rabbits at 6 weeks.

If you are bottle feeding the kids, you will want to introduce solid feed and hay gradually. You can then ease off the bottle feeding, and they will eat more solid feed. I wean my goats at 90 days.
Horses are commonly good mothers. They lick their foal after he/she is born in order to stimulate blood circulation and allow he/she to breathe. They encourage the foal to get up by nosing it and nickering, and nurse the foal. In the wild, horses take care of their foals until another foal comes along. At this point, the mother will chase away the older foal and take care of the younger one. Domesticated horses will… Read More

You do not wean newborn rabbits! Rabbits are not weaned from their mom until they are 6 to 8 weeks old.
