In honor of the ridiculous influx of baby pictures recently, here’s one from the vault

When 8-year-old mare Maggy Hawk gave birth to her third foal on May 9, 2002, the young mare immediately rejected her colt. In the 12 day interval before a nurse mare could be found, 9-year-old Lauren, daughter of breeder John Silvertand, hand fed the colt milk from an old Coors Lite bottle
