    Mini Foal

    I wanted to take some time to thank you all for your help. Your loving, positive support in this really meant the world to me. We, unfortunately, had to put Onyx down on Thursday.

    Mini Foal

    Good morning, I am new here, new to mini's and new to foaling. I run a horse rescue in Manitoba and the mini's have come in like crazy this winter. We were shocked to find a foal on the ground yesterday, very cold and shaking but still moving. I brought her in the house and warmed her up with...
