Foal
A nurse mare has to have a foal of her own to nurse another foal. In Aust some large breeding farms breed their mares to be used as nurse mares, and when their foals are born they are usually put down. I know a lady who rescued some of these foals and I bought 2 from her. They are now 17 months old and are growing into beautiful horses, and I will train them for trail riding when they are old enough.

Most mare foal without complications and very little distress or discomfort.
That was one large foal as most are about 125. If Rachel alexandra recovers she will probably be bred back this year or next. The resulting foal will be worth millions potentially. He r value as a broodmare demands this. Shalom

I am so glad that they care enough to take care of the nurse mare's babies. I feel so sorry for them. The little foal looks alike a happy little baby!

Seems like Rachel Alexandra may have turned a corner. According to this story, she is at least eating a bit now: Rachel Alexandra remains stable Monday | Daily Racing Form

Not to make light of a hurting horse, but did anyone else spot the pun?

Remains stable?

...yeah, I'm terrible.

She's had two pregnancy and severe complications with both. Only the love of the almighty dollar demands she be bred again.

Gogaited, as I said the foal could be worth millions. Its breeding potential and racing career would force most breeders to make that decision.
If she is unable to carry a foal then her value is the same as any horse at a public auction.
I am not saying its moral but a breeder needs to recoup any profit when they can. That is simple financial logic. We are not talking about Backyard Betty here. Shalom
