Brooke's 2016 Foal

Ancan Halo

Foaled May 2, 2016, 2:30 am

 

   

Momma Brooke greets her last foal with interest.
And then due to a probable internal rupture, she prolapsed her uterus and passed away.  Leaving us to raise her orphaned filly.

 

Mourn not for this fireball filly!   She has never been a shrinking violet.  Almost as if she knows her momma made sure she arrived safely, she knows she is something special; something spectacular. 

Halo is fearless, almost to the degree of being sassy.   She is not for the faint of heart!  She is a live-wire.   Definitely sane, but also "hot"; lots of spark, ego, and attitude in this future english pleasure or pleasure driving contender.

She is extremely well put-together and should also do very well in any conformation competition.

I love her bloodlines, both top and bottom.   Her momma put the nicest Morgans on the ground, and I bet this beauty will do the same. 

I did price her - and I'm serious about downsizing and retiring from breeding Morgans --- but I absolutely adore Halo, and I'm truly not sure I could part with her.  We'll  see what the future brings.

~More Snapshots...

Temporary surrogate, Ancan Timeless (with a paternal brother to Halo at her side), allows Halo to nurse for the several days. Halo wasn't sure if Time was her momma, the dogs, or humans.

 

This is what my stove looked like for 3 months.  A formula brewing station.

It takes a village to raise an orphaned foal.  For the first 2 weeks, she was bottle fed every 2 hours.   It gave me new meaning to the  term "foal-watch".   I've never been so tired in my life!   I am so very grateful to all the friends who rallied to help me out from time to time so I could sleep.  Thank you!

 

 

And while the formula filled her tummy with all the nutrients she needed, there was something else, something very important,  missing.  Halo needed a maternal figure.   A "horse" to raise her to be a "horse".  Someone to protect her in the herd, to teach her about pecking orders, reciprocating scratching, and how to graze.
Enter Morgan mare, "Lady" (Tionas Sabetha Kathleen).   Lady has always wanted a foal - she has spoke plain "English" about that desire since she arrived at my farm.  She was overjoyed to step into Brooke's hoofprints and raise her darling filly for her.


 

I tried (in vain) for over 2 weeks to get her to drink out of a bucket and not a bottle...  It finally worked!  CELEBRATE!

With her belly full of nutrient-rich formula, and foster-mom Lady never far, Halo thrived.   She loved life and didn't hesitate to dance through it.

Shown below - now 2 months old.   She is eating grain and hay - but still gets her bucket of formula, too.

She loved visits from my 6 year old granddaughter, Sophia.

Halo fell asleep while the children groomed her.

With her loving "mother" always by her side, Halo felt safe and loved.  She was a normal, healthy foal after all.


She wasn't thrilled about learning to pose -but she learned and looked stunning when she put her ears up.
