What is a Nursemare Foal?

They are babies born from a mare that was bred for the sole purpose of providing milk to another, more expensive foal, usually a Thoroughbred or sport horse. The nurse mare’s foal is no longer needed after they are born; they’re left orphaned and ultimately die.

These foals are very young when they are intentionally separated from their mothers, sometimes only days old. They are desperately in need of round-the-clock care that their mother would normally provide: warm milk, companionship, high quality nutrition, and most important… a gentle touch, full of love.

With the proper care, they will grow up strong and healthy. The babies are given a mare’s milk replacer every 4-6 hours, foal feed, pro-biotics, nutritional supplements, and provided with alfalfa hay and soft bedding…and lots of love!

Many times the babies require veterinarian intervention and care which can be anywhere from plasma transfusion to immune system enhancer and much more.

All of which is provided to the babies so that they have the best chance to live a long and normal life as originally intended.
