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!
LET’S HELP SUPPORT THESE BABIES WITH FOOD AND ADOPTION PROMOTIONS!
Any Starbucks money or car seat change for these babies? Any little bit helps … and milk replacer is very expensive! THANK YOU!
