Have they tried Johana Vardon at the National Foaling Bank if its still open? She is very good at finding foster mares for orphaned foals.

How is the foal.

The yearling I used to loan was a hand reared orphan... it was touch and go for a while with her as she wouldnt take to the bottle but she did in the end and was coming on really well last I saw of her.
Really hope this little one makes it!! Keep us updated xx

How is the foal doing?

I'd keep trying with the bottle until you find a surrogate. Hopefully he'll take to the bottle with a bit more practice and you won't need a surrogate mare.

If the foal made it it would be a 2 year old now so probably wouldn't need a surrogate mare.

How is she doing now, chelseanlee?
