    Default Possible nurse mare in Oregon

    My mare unfortunately delivered a stillborn colt today. The vet suggested she may make a good nurse mare for an orphan foal. I can't guarantee she would take to a new foal, but it's worth a shot if it would help someone out.

    I'm located about 30 minutes outside Portland Oregon.

    Sorry this is short, but I'm still in shock over the whole event. My email should show up in my profile if I got it set up correctly.

    Anyway, if someone is in need, I wanted to spread the word.

    Wishing all the good luck in the world for those still waiting for happy outcomes.

    Oh I am so sorry for your loss! :-( In the past I have had my breeding losses too. No words can ease the heart ache, loss, and sadness.

    I will pass the word on in hopes of making a match. Maybe contact Dr Root who has the TB breeding farm in Newberg, or other vets to get the word out?

    Sending prayers your way.

    Dutch, thank you so much for the kind words. That is a good idea to contact Dr Root, I know my vets are also on the lookout.

    It would make the awfulness a bit better if something good could come from this.

    Thank you so much.
