Courage The Horse
Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 25, 2006
Colorado, USA

From Shiloh Acres Horse Rescue in Colorado:

This precious little baby was born on a feedlot to a very wild mare before she was shipped to slaughter. The mare ended up rejecting this little foal and refusing to let him nurse.

The feedlot owner was kind enough to just give him to us since it was obvious that he was doing very poorly, but it was too late to save him. He had gotten very little (if any) colostrum (the first antibody-rich milk that a mare produces for her foal) from his mom, and therefore bacteria had invaded his body that he was not strong enough to fight off.

He became septic very quickly, and we had to humanely euthanize him. For the short time that we did have him, he was a loving baby who sought out the attention from us that his mother didn't give him. When he was put to sleep, he was surrounded by people who truly loved him.
