ARCADIA, Calif. (Mar 6, 2014) — The California Thoroughbred Breeders Association, through its website, assisted in locating nurse mares for these foals: Aids At-Risk Horses

ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 5, 2004) — is a free service run by two Canadians devoted to horses that offers breeders the opportunity to submit and request colostrum and nurse mares having lost their own foals. Cyberfoal also has an equine evac page, allowing horse owners to view and submit temporary accommodation in the future event of a disaster. Since the fires of British Columbia, California and Europe in 2003 many horses faced homeless situations. Cyberfoal asks for no financial assistance, only that we help each other by offering a mare to an orphan foal, colostrum to a foal deprived and a home to a horse evacuated. Visit

This is a half TB half Belgian filly who at some point will be needing a sports horse home. In order to have functional nurse mares and extra colostrum, the mares have to have foals!
