I have some bad news. I just lost a two week old foal (cause unknown) and now have a mare available as a nurse mare. I would like to place a foal with her in the next 48 hours if possible. If you know ANYONE who has a recently orphaned foal please call me IMMEDIATELY. Any hour is fine - just CALL. My phone number is 705-745-2955. You may call collect if necessary. Will accept a foal from anywhere within reasonable distance. I am located in Peteborough, Ontario. Please pass this on to anyone you know who breeds, or knows breeders. I would like to turn this tragedy into something good for someone. Thanks.

We just lost a mare this a.m. 6:00. We live 4 hours from you but have already picked up a mare that is getting along with the foal. If I may suggest a number that you can call, Standardbred Canada has a nurse mare program and would most likely want your mare to be taken to the farm that the foal is at, but I can;t say for sure.
