Horse milk farm, Els Hattink reporting

pictures by Els Hattink
 Els was taken by surprise on her bike trip through this wonderful country North of Brussels in the vicinity of Meise and Kapelle when she saw a sing for horse milk.
Google is always helpful:
"Nomads and Russian tribes roaming the steppes have been drinking horse milk since time immemorial to invigorate themselves. Slowly but surely, the benefits of the product are gaining wider recognition in western Europe.
Milking a mare starts six weeks after foaling, as soon as the foal learns to be independent of his mother’s udder".
