I am in need of a nurse mare to be on my farm in Upper Michigan.
Unfortunely, I have a mare that is rejecting her foal after her foal had surgery. One of those bad situations gone worse.
I have a maiden mare that had a foal on Tuesday night. All was going well with her being a very good Mom. Our foal started acting very constipated after many enemas. He ended up with a merconium impaction that had to be surgically removed at 2 days old. It was a very good thing I brought them in.
Problem is the mare had to be boarded at a farm down the road overnight without her colt due the the clinic not having their stalls done and ready for in house patients. Well unfortunately after all of our efforts.....they were many she seems to be rejecting him. The smells and the situations just weren't right at the first reunion. We have them in the foaling stall at home now the foal is doing GREAT! They are seperated by a wall we put up so that she can't get to him. We have had to either twitch or sedate her to let him nurse. She is becoming more and more aggressive about it.....I can't say that I can blame the mare at all she is very confused.
I live in Upper Michigan. I have a large farm and I take very good care of my horses. If you have or know of an available nurse mare please let me know.
