We recently adopted a foal rescued from a feedlot. She came from a large herd of pretty well bred quarter horses--a ranch that went out of business. She came to us sick, terrified and very suspicious. After just a month she's almost completely healthy--still has a little goopy eye and cough. She's curious, runs and plays like a baby should, and seems very, very happy. It took a LOT of patience and time, but it was worth every second to see this baby shine!
I sure adore our baby, Starlight (Star for short!).
