What is a Nurse Mare Foal?
So this topic may send some people into an uproar as nurse mare foals are a by-product of another industry. However, I am only writing this to comment on the foals and hopefully help these little guys have a life. To me, if a human creates a foal, then it would be nice for a human to help it survive. All the other stuff, I’m not touching.
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 who’s natural mother has been taken away to be re-bred. The newly orphaned “more valuable” foal is moved onto the nurse mare. The original foal of the nurse mare is outta luck.
People say that this doesn’t happen. I think that argument would come as a surprise to the well established rescue facilities that take as many of these foals as they can afford — every foaling season.
2022 CROP OF NURSE MARE FOALS SAVED BY LAST CHANCE CORRAL
Last Chance Corral is a rescue in Ohio that specializes in Nurse Mare Foals. They are set up to feed and house babies with special needs (no mothers…). This is a huge and expensive endeavor. They need help and I do love helping the most innocent survive. These babies don’t ask to be born to be immediately discarded… So sad.
LET’S HELP LLC feed and care for these babies while they wait to be adopted! Milk replacer, special feeds, plasma… all the medicines needed for babies is very costly, but vital. Thank you in advance!
