Two new fillies have arrived at Last Chance Corral, our March Bucket Fund horses!

WHAT IS A NURSE MARE FOAL?

A nurse mare foal is the by product of creating a nurse mare.  A nurse mare is an equine wet nurse.  Nurse mares are needed to nurse foals whose natural mother has been taken away to be rebred.  The newly orphaned “more valuable” foal is moved onto the nurse mare.  The original foal of the nurse mare is abandoned.  Most are sent to feedlots where they are fattened up and sent to slaughter at 6 months.

Last Chance Corral has connections with the NurseMare Foal pipeline and agrees to take these babies, nurse them to health and adopt them out to forever homes.

THE NEW ARRIVALS!

Here are photos of the brand new filly arrivals at LCC!  Meet Manhatten and Julip!

This one is fuzzy but I wanted you to see which is which, side by side. Manhattan (4 days old) on the right and Julip (10 days old) on the left. (I know, looks like it should be reversed since Manhattan looks older…)

ADOPTION POLICY from the LCC FB page:

LCC Adoption Policy
Here at the Last Chance Corral our number one priority is to make sure the homes we find for our loved ones are suitable to their needs and abilities.  Throughout the years we have discovered that there are certain requirements that we find make both the adopter and the horse or foal’s life much much better.

The first and probably most important factor in selecting an adopter is that they must have previous horse experience.  We do not adopt our loved ones out to people who have not had the wonderful experience of owning or caring for a horse previously.  Our horses have already been through enough and need not to go through the often overlooked challenges that first time horse owner experiences.

The second requirement is that you have the appropriate facilities.  You need to have access to a barn with stalls and quality fencing in the paddock or pastures.  For nurse mare foals it is required that you have a barn on your property.  The foals need to be constantly monitored not just checked on once or twice a day.  They need companionship and motherly love, as any baby would.

We do not allow foals to be adopted to homes with barbed wire or high tensile fence.  Foals require safer fencing, such as 3-4 board fencing or gate panels.

Also, if you do not have any other horses on your property currently and would like to adopt a nurse mare foal, we REQUIRE that you adopt foals in pairs- especially foals that are younger than six weeks old.  Make sure that you are financially ready to adopt a foal before you come on out to adopt.

You can fill out an adoption agreement when you pick up your foal.

Note:  We will only hold foals for 24 hours with a non-refundable deposit.  If there is not a deposit applied to a foal, we have a first come, first serve policy for qualified adoptors.  Our reasoning behind that is that if we are holding foals, it prevents other people from adopting the foals that are taking up space for others that are waiting to come in.  This policy allows us to save more foals.

Recap of Requirements

1.  You must have owned a horse previously.

2.  You must have quality fencing- for foals, no high tensile or barbed wire.  For adults, we really prefer that you don’t have barbed or high tensile wire.

3.  Our foals are adopted out in pairs unless otherwise stated (older foals may go as singles as we see fit) .

4.  You must have an active relationship with your vet and farrier, and they need to be “on board” with the regular health care of your foal.  They also need to vouch for the care that you give your present horse(s).

5.  Your barn with stalls must be on your property if you are adopting foals.  For horses, you can board at another facility.

6.  You must presently own horses, to teach the foal to be a horse as it gets older.

If you are sure that you qualify for adoption, please call the farm at (740)594-4336 to speak with Victoria, Rachel, or Stacy.
