Foster Mare At OSO Arabians

On saturday the 1st of November 2014 before embarking on our journey to Eldorado, we had the hardest decision to make. That morning we had to put our lovely mare Kelkette Park Silver Eyre to sleep due to having a fractured pelvis that took its toll on our beloved mare,leaving behind 4 week old Elyne missing mum very much. Amanda then put advertisements out to look for a foster mum to help little Elyne grow into a fitt strong filly. Then finally we recieve a call on monday the 3rd saying a mare had lost her foal two days ago and that she would be a good match for our filly. Kira went to pick our new mare up and she fianally arrived on the OSO ground at 6pm that night. She is a TB chestnut mare with a big 123 branded onto her buttock. Amanda and Kira spet the whole night with both mare and foal until the mare would let little Elyne drink. Finally she got her chance and when the little filly finally drank there were a few tears of happyness. So the mare being so easy to handle she earned the nickname of ' Easy as 123' The following days we all took shifts to keep an eye on mare and foal as Eylne is a 4 week old and the mare would be nursing a new born it was difficult for the poor mare to keep up with milking. But yesterday the 7th november after a few days of getting acustomed to each other it was like they belonged to eachother. Easy is following little Elyne around everywhere, sleeping together, calling to eachother and most important of all foal is drinking and mare is more than happy to let her they are now two peas in a pod and we love watching this pair grow into a wonderfull partnership. We the team at OSO would like to say a huge thankyou to jim vasey from goulburn valley equine for contacting us about Easy, without her little Eylne would still be an orphan lost without her mum.
