Saturday is PhoBlog Day… And today, a PhotoJournal of the Mustangfilly kind!


Mike calling Shirley

Mike finds a newborn, entangled in the sack and umbilical, abandoned.

Remember our Bucket Fund baby, Iron Man?  (If not, you can read it here…) Well, Shirley has taken in another tiny baby foal filly.  This baby was found on the lot where the entire herd of 169 rescued Mustangs were transported after they were saved by an incredible group of great people a few weeks ago (link).

Well, now the number of rescued mustangs has moved to 170…

The newborn filly was found yesterday, tangled still in her sack and umbilical cord.

The good people tried to reunite her with her dam but the young mare was having none of it.  After a while the decision was made to treat the filly as an orphan and Shirley was called in.  The strong arms of Mike carried the baby to Shirley in her foal-proof back seat of the truck.

Once in the foal room,

“Summer” was administered to, fed the best colostrum other than Mom’s, and everyone was exhausted.  Nap time.

They’ve named the baby Summer because of the unusual season for a mustang birth.  So far so  good.

Much needed colostrum...

Hopefully, this little girl will continue to grow strong with the wonderful Shirleycare.  If you’d like to contact

Naptime for all...
