If you are in the market for a young filly or colt to start, you should definitely check out Last Chance Corral before you buy one anywhere else. This non-profit rescue specializes in the rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption of neglected, abused and unwanted equines in South Athens, Ohio.
Where did all these foals come from? Many of them are part of the groups Nurse Mare Foal Rescue Project. Nurse Mare Foals are “by-products” of the thoroughbred racing industry. Some barns will separate the Thoroughbred mare and foal, so that the mare can be shipped back to the stud farm to be rebred for next year. Her newborn foal needs to nurse, of course, so another mare with milk is brought in. The reason that mare has milk? She was bred and had a foal as well. That foal is usually sold at auction (often to slaughter), destroyed on site. Last Chance Corral saves about 150-200 of these foals a year.
Right now, they are at capacity and need you to adopt a nurse mare foal to make room for more! Often, these are stunning babies, such as this beautiful, two week old buckskin gaited filly named Disco.
They have many foals to choose from: Warmbloods, Paints, Walkers, Quarter Horses, Draft crosses and more. Adoption fees are very reasonable, in most cases just a couple hundred. Just check out the video below:

They are very young foals – most less than a month old – with very strict adoption policies including having prior horse experience, appropriate facilities and a buddy horse. If you are interested in saving one of these cuties, visit the Last Chance Corral’s adoption FAQs on their site and follow their directions for adoption inquiries.
