The pasture accident- She was found with a fractured Hock our vet said there was no hope. Momma's Show name was Never give up (she cloic'd at 2 and was almost put down) her barn name was hope.

I believe everything happens for reason, good or sad. Quote:"you'd be w/out the mare and not have this little piece of her left behind." Is enough said right there. Bless you for taking care of this little guy, he will be very special. I know I own a orphan filly, now 12yrs old.

I guess the answer to that question is up to the individual. To me, you bet it'd be worth it! I thought the same on the recent thread about the other mare that died after foaling (also freak accident), I'd be so thankfully that it didn't happen before she foaled! That baby may be the only thing that gets me through the lose of my mare!

Of course I'd want to do everything possible to find a nurse mare (more for the health of my foal, then for myself, I love bottle feeding), but I'd sure bottle feed if I had to.

Yes, I remember your post about the little guy maybe fading out as the dam did. Sorry to hear about her and good luck with the foal.

IMO if this one was worth breeding despite all of the risks involved, why wouldn't you continue to breed? Unless you are losing a lot of money or aren't improving the breed, I would think that it would be worth it. Like one person before me said, a freak pasture accident can happen regardless of whether a person breeds or doesn't breed. Just a risk you take with any kind of animal. Either way, this little guy is just too cute.

Oh my. I am so sorry to hear about the lose of your mare... I couldn't imagine what you are going through. Though I agree, he is **** worth bottle feeding. Even though its going to take countless hours, sleepless nights, tired days; that foal is literally your baby now.

Who ever said "Everything happens for a reason" is right.
