    "My guess is that plenty of the foals she rescues simply come from auctions & kill pens. In my area they (sadly) usually separate the mare & foal for selling. I've seen 1-2- month old foals run...

    Curious how many foals does he have in Europe and was he sold to France? (Were they all fresh semen foals?)

    Halimey Go is listed as 16. 1 but he looks very fine --perhaps you could find out how big he has been throwing them as he is out of a smaller anglo-arab sire line though his dam had size it seems. ...
