this is very true. And I mean he has amazing breeding. His sire is- Raleighs Full Moon
And his dam was a a grayed out sorrrel QH

I meant to add - I am sorry for the loss of your mare.

^^^^ Totally agree with this. The sad fact is they will never live as long as we do and as long as we have them in our lives we stand a chance of losing them. It's heartbreaking to lose one but by having her foal you still have a little bit of her.

My mare is decended from a mare I bought when I was 12. The old mare (Babe) died in a freak accident in the field as well, and I know that I couldn't have made it through her loss if I hadn't had her 2 year old daughter (Disco) to love and fill the void. A couple of years ago I gave Disco away to a loving home as a pasture ornament and kid's horse. I wondered if it was worth having horses and getting my heart broken each time I had to let go. The answer is Yes. Thanks to breeding my mare I still have a granddaughter (Dancer) and a great grandson (Mystery) of that very special mare.

The love you felt for your mare can live on in the little one. Each time you watch him run you'll be seeing a piece of her racing the wind.

He is worth it. He was worth breeding.

Freak accidents happen trust me I know I work at a breeding farm. But it doesn't matter you can loose your horse or any animal at anytime. It was her time to go, freak accident or not, bred or not.
Everyone and everything has a time. There is a time for everything. That was just her time. And I am greatly sorry for you loss. But keep him, nurse him let your mare's memory live on through him.

If bottle feeding is to much try putting the milk in a bucket. They will usually drink it that way also

I raised the best horse I ever had bottle feeding from three days old; if you don't want it call me! It will be your BABY in every way. Mine never bucked~she was my sweetheart. I taught her everything by the time she was four. You could sleep under her; she would go anywhere I told her to, and loaded on command. What I wish I could have her back (RIP). I always felt so sorry for her lsoing her Mom like she did. I guess I literally became her Mother in every practical way. Once in a lifetime experience in horse training, and there's nothing else quite like it. Keep us posted whatever you do....

I already love this little guy (my husband not so much) We cleaned out or wash room as it goes out side. He has a little run that he is allowed in...when I'm there. I don't think my hubby likes having a horse in the house but I don't mind. He honestly is amazing. He seems to know he is being helped and isn't rough with us.

I'm sorry that you lost mama that way. But that boy is beautiful and his sire is absolutely stunning!
