We always try to save animals when we see them or when someone calls for our assistance because we believe that every life is valuable.
Particularly when it comes to young animals or animals who have been abandoned without any maternal care or security. It crushes our hearts to abandon such innocent lives to fend for themselves.
A couple received a call informing them that a foal had been abandoned on their property. The couple drove down a rock quarry in Mingo after discovering that a foal that had just been born had been abandoned by its mother inside the premises.
Since time was of the essence, they required that assistance. Fortunately members of the community nearby offered to assist the couple in their search for the young horse. The foal was eventually discovered by the woman, but he appeared weak and thirsty.
He had been alone in that area for five hours and had no mother to nurse or feed him, so you could tell he was hungry. He was brought by the couple to the nearest Tractor Supply Co., where they bought some milk, they bought water, a feeding bottle. It was hard for them to feed the foal. Therefore, it is essential for rescuers to also provide the baby with nutritional supplements.
Still, they tried to get him to drink a little bit so he could get through the rest of the trip.
The foal was given to Bella Run Equine, a specialized rescue, by the couple.
