If you have seen the foal and yearling page, you may be wondering why there are pictures of foal herds and no adult horses. It's because they are orphans, their mothers were sold to slaughter without them. Foals can have their mothers ripped away and shipped to slaughter even minutes of their birth. Sadly unless these foals are rescued ASAP, they will starve to death. The first picture below of the palomino is "Angel" a slaughter rescue who took in these 3 orphaned foals as her own when she still had a baby at her side.
