My 7 mo old doeling is still nursing on her mother and it hasn't been a big deal but I think it's time to wean her so her mother can have a break before I breed her this fall. I'm wondering what's the best way to wean her though.

I can and already separate her at night. But, I only have these two, so separating them during the day isn't really possible without causing a lot of stress. I've heard of people using fabric tape on her moms udder. Anyone know if that works or got any tips for me?

You can tape the dam's teats. Or just get some field fence or panels set up to separate them. So they can still interact and see each other, but so the doeling can't nurse.
