Foal born IN THE KILL PEN is rescued with his mother!

A happy ending is refreshing once in a while! The horse rescue that I volunteer with just took in a mare and her colt. The foal was born IN THE KILL PEN and survived! Now they are getting great care and attention at Day Dreams Farm Therapy and Rescue in Cottrellville, MI.

Please watch our YouTube video of the news coverage and smile:

Wow, what a lucky little guy. The mare seems like such a sweetheart too.

Actually mom and baby look well-cared and not starving, so I truly wonder WHO dropped that mare in kill pen!

I'm very glad it was a happy end story!

I was thinking that; why would anyone put such a gorgeous mare in the kill pen!

Such a lovely story though, that foal looks adorable.

Mount up and leave your troubles behind on the ground.

What a beautiful mare and foal! Truly inspiring story!

An update on this wonderful story!

I thought that you all might enjoy an update on these two...

Both were given a clean bill of health shortly after arriving. The mare (who has been named Faith) is very sweet and a fantastic mama! We think that she may have belonged to an Amish farm and is quite well broke. She will likely be a wonderful riding horse and will begin some light work soon now that her baby is becoming more independent. The colt (who is called Spirit) is such a fun little guy! He frolics and plays and is very comfortable with the volunteers at the farm. And boy do his legs go on for miles! He will be a tall, handsome boy when he's grown.

If you would like to know more about the rescue, please check out our facebook page at: Day Dreams Farm Therapy and Rescue | Facebook

What a lucky pair. They are beautiful! He looks SO much like my guy who was a PMU rescue. Same color, almost identical markings.......
