    Information from Our Horse Experts

    Animal experts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center share their knowledge about horses.

    Q
    If a newborn foal is orphaned and there is a lactating mare on site, can the orphan foal be placed with her to nurse and raise?
    A
    If there is a gentle mare nursing a foal relatively close to the age of the orphan, she may be willing to raise the orphan foal. Introducing the orphan to the new mare requires careful attention, because even gentle mares may not accept another foal. Tying the mare next to her feed and hay while both foals have an opportunity to nurse may help get the mare accustomed to the extra foal. Caution must be taken to ensure the orphaned foal doesn’t get hurt during this introductory period. But if successful, this can be a good option for the foal and a much easier option for the horse owner.
