Foster mother for foal?

Just got this message and thought I'd pass it on, as neither of my boys have obvious maternal instincts.

bitte um Mithilfe! Eilt! Wir suchen dringend eine Ammenstute für ein Quarterfohlen (Hengst) dessen Mama ist Sonntag nacht gestorben. Das Fohlen ist jetzt 5 Tage alt. Wer helfen Kann meldet sich bitte unter 076/23463647 Oder 071/6569049.

Roughly: Foster mother needed for 5 day old (male) foal - mother died on Sunday . (I guess he's a few days older now, not sure when the original message was written).

Hope something works out for him...

I asked the owner of the neighbouring horse farm and she said there is help available in these situations, I hope this suggestion is not too late.

Re: Foster mother for foal?

A mare will normally only accept an orphan if she has just lost her own foal. Otherwise, it's hand bottle feeding every 2 hours or so for quite some time.

Hope the little one gets help.
