AppyLove, I wasn't ruling out anther horse, I was just stating it is not an uncommon behavior among the lactating domestic mammals I've had. It is a possibility another horse could be nursing her.
Some mares will "adopt" another youngster if they miss their foal, but it may be that "surrogate foal" is an adult horse. Just because they're an adult doesn't mean they won't drink milk, as long as the mare doesn't prevent it.
Yes, she's a purebred Percheron. Yes, she is bay.
