KAfter her horse, who had just delivered a baby, passed away, Karla of S & K Quarter Horses was left with the responsibility of caring for an abandoned foal.
Zip, her rescue doggie, was really helpful throughout this terrible incident.
Swindle’s life has always been more dominated by creatures. She does every effort to secure the welfare and affection of her animals.
The farm had recently received a new calf when disaster struck notwithstanding her efforts.
All seemed regular when the horse was delivered. The colt was quickly standing after a straightforward delivery.
However, after a promising beginning, the mare, a 22-year-old horse named Sandy, started to show signs of disease approximately a week after giving birth.
Even though she seemed to get better right after, her health quickly declined a few days later.
Swindle decided it was time to call the vet because Sandy was obviously experiencing problems.
Eventually, it was determined to kill the horse since it was the compassionate thing to do in light of her condition.
Swindle was astonished by something Zip did the night Sandy’s death was decided.
The puppy had usually shown curiosity in the horses in the stable, but on this particular evening he focused especially on the stallion.
When the colt’s mom was no longer able to maintain or care for him, Zip jumped in to comfort the colt.
He seemed to understand what was going on and that the foal needed help.
The little colt was patted and poked by him as he sat down near to him. The loyal rescue dog would not go from the side of his new pal.
It is not an easy task to care for an abandoned yearling, so Swindle was glad for the help of her faithful dogs.
The baby needed to be bottle-fed a milk replacement every several hours.
Swindle knew she could count on him to keep the colt from feeling abandoned.
