My friend had two more BABIES!






My friend is a Morgan breeder in Vermont.  His facility is called East of Equinox Farm and they have the old style Morgan that I love.  Many years ago, I toured their place and purchased two colts.  One grew into a lovely black stallion (which I sold because I wasn’t set up for stallions) and the other grew into my most favorite riding horse ever –  Aladdin.

Me on the trail with Aladdin.

My best guy when he was showing as a 2 year-old.

IN A WHILE…

In a while, when I’m back in Grass Valley, I might be in the market for a baby.  Since I have no mares anymore, I will need to purchase a baby.  And, for me, why not go back to the well?  I have only purchased from two Morgan breeders.   Kohler Farms (where I bought Mama Tess) and East of Equinox.

Since I have enough of Mama Tess’ breeding, I am strongly considering East of Equinox again.  Hence, I’m following all the births.  And, of course, they are sending me texts with photos – as it is happening – so the hook is being set nicely!

This is a 5 month old colt from last year’s crop at East of Equinox. He won the NY Breeder’s Sweepstakes.  He is related to my Aladdin.

 

LAST WEEK, I SHOWED YOU THIS GUY…

Just born

24 hours later…

And now two two more East of Equinox MORGAN BABIES were born!

This filly was born!

And then this black colt!

Loook at that face!

A great shot of the filly and the black colt, napping. These two mares know each other well.

Then they put all three mares together and this is what happened! Such a great shot!  These babies will be a pack of craziness very soon!

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.

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 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…

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!

All donations are 100% tax deductible.  The Horse and Man Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit.

“Happy ending” born 4-23-22 bay paint filly (one of the twins) read about her and her brother in another post.
“Johnny Karate ” aka Wimpy born 4-21-22 Gaited black paint colt. He will be a smaller horse. When he first got here his little legs were going every which way like a tiny one man karate army. He was also a little angry with us and put up a stink about it. After a couple of warm bowls of milk he softened his stance on his new life. He may be a little smaller than his counterparts… but no one messes with Johnny Karate. Adoption fee 250
” Maureen O’Hara” born 4-23-22 Red filly. My guess is TB dad and a mixed mom. She would be a great match with her sister Scarlet. They have the same birthday and possibly the same dad. But she could go with another. Adoption fee 250
“Scarlet O’Hara” born 4-23-22 Red filly. Body and color match up with Maureen. Another tall well built cross breed. You can’t go wrong with these Irish gals. Adoption fee 250
“She’s a Knock-out” aka KO. She is super fancy, put together correctly, balanced and athletic with wonderful movement and a nice floaty trot. Great dressage prospect. She would pair well with “Marvel” . They are both going to be very tall. Adoption fee 500
“Marvel” dark bay or black filly born 4-7-22 trots. Mom is a big mixed gaited mare, dad is TB. She will be very dark, perhaps even black. She will be a tall mare well over 16HH. To adopt,  please email:   savefoals@lastchancecorral.org   or call Rebecca 352-322-5571Adoption fee:  $250 If you have been approved to adopt – IF YOU ARE PRE-APPROVED you may call Victoria740-594-4336 or Rebecca 352-322-5571

All of the foals posted yesterday are still available!! Visit lastchancecorral.org to learn how to get approved to adopt. Be a hero, adopt!

AND TODAY’S POST FROM LAST CHANCE CORRAL!

These three orphaned nurse mare foals came in HOT today. And yes they are HOT! Just take a look, I am sure you’ll agree. The buckskin “Moonraker” has already been spoken for but the other two are still available.
“Tomorrow” never dies. born 4-26-22 black gaited paint really nicely put together, an in-your-pocket type colt. He is just a sweetheart. He is looking for love and bonds quickly.
“Sarana” born 4-25-22 palomino paint filly she has minimal markings but surprise the end of her tail is golden!
