Wanna see a baby horse?

IMAGE REMOVED DUE TO HOT LINKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This little foal was born just 3 days before this picture was taken. You can see where his mom (a maiden mare which means he is her first baby) stepped on him by accident. This little guy had a really hard time standing up on his own but the wonderful woman who takes care of our horse, Snap, took care of the little guy even though he wasn't her responsibility. He's doing well now! Thanks to the nice woman who gave them HER hay and HER water and tons of time. The mean mean owners of this mare (there are 20 PREGNANT mares out in a field and they were out there all Winter) said that the nice woman was trying to hurt the baby horse. Grrrr.....race track people are BAD mean people who don't care about the horses. There is another really really really sad chapter to this story but I don't want to upset anyone so I'm not going to tell it. Lets just say the poor pregnant mares need to come inside.

That little foal is so cute! I can see the little ouchie on his leggie. I am sure that mom just made a mistake, because I can see that she loves her baby very much. That nice lady is good for helping him. I wish I could give the bitey to the bad mean lady.

oh oh oh, mommy is about to haf leaky eyes. the farmer guy next to our street takes in abused animals - cows, sheeps, chick-hens, goats, llamas, pigs - plus all of his own livestock. the humane society brings him animals that they con-fi-skate from bad mean farmers and he takes care of them. there is really good people and really mean people out there. we hopes the pregnant mares get takded someplace good.

Oh I hope the baby does well and that he gets lots of love and that the other mares get to come inside where it's warmer and drier.

I am so glad that baby horsie is okay. And I am sending gentle headbutts to the lady that took care of him.

Meowm wonders if there is any animal police that can be called in to check out the situation with the other horses.

We will include all these horsies in our purrayers.

Yes Junior, the ASPCA has been called in and its getting to be a tricky situation since they have food water and some shelter. But that is why the mean owner people blamed the nice lady because they know she called the ASPCA on them.

He's a kyoot little horsie. It's lucky furr him that the nice lady took care of him. Mum makes all of the horsies here go in theer nice warm stables at night in the winter. Those mean peepull wouldn't want to be out in the rain and snow, speshully if they wuz going to haf babies would they. Hope the ASPCA can help them.

Some people should not be allowed to own any animals. Leaving horsies outside all the time, terrible. Specially for the mum's to be! Hope the horsie police can do something.

Mommy and Daddy just don't get it. There are some aweful people out there!!! This little one is so cute. All those pregnant horsies spending the winter outside makes me really sad. My beans love me so much. They also help the strays in the neighborhood. They try to get care and treatment one cat at a time.

It sounds like the nice lady is really and angel!

If those baby horsies is apposed to become race horsies, didn't sumone pay lotsa money to make the mares haf babies? You'd fink after that, they'd wanna take care of them! Poor fings, this has been a bad winter to be outside! Mom luvs horsies but knows they take a lot of care. That baby is so cute! I hopes he grows up big an strong an has a good life.
Purrs!
