Just today, a friend of mine lost a mare due to severe colic. She had to be put down and left a 3 week old filly. Any advice on keeping this filly alive and nursing will be most appreciated. Our Vet loaned us his mini that has been a great help with sick horses as a companion. He won't help any in the milk department, though. We are actively seeking out a "nurse" mare. But, we realize they are hard to find.

Check in at CyberFoal.com where they can match nurse mares and/or colostrum with orphans.

If there is not any colostrum available, make sure that you have a source of oral IgG and have given it to the foal within the first twelve hours of it's life as this porvides protection against disease. If you do not get it in orally before it is 24 hours old, you will have to have a plasma transfer performed by IV.

Goats milk is a substitute that can be used for foals once they have had colostrum or IgG.

Good luck - it's a lot of hard work raising an orphan.

The cyberfoal site is in fact a great thing. Now if in the future someone has an orphan foal, look to a Nursemare service or farm to get a nursemare right away.You could check in to cyberfoal and chance it to get a match.Sometimes the wait is to long.
