Rescued Horses Lacy & Groucho are New Parents!Posted by April Nockleby, ALDF's Online Content Manager on May 22, 2009
At 9 p.m. last night, Lacy, the pregnant mare who was close to death when she was rescued from a North Carolina field, gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby girl. Both mother and daughter are doing great! (Stay tuned for video!)
Last December, Lacy, an Arabian mare, was close to death from colic and
the burden of carrying a foal with no food or nutritional support. Her
hipbones, backbone, and ribs were all protruding from her skin,
indicating an advanced state of malnutrition and starvation. She was
rushed to the North Carolina State College School of Veterinary
Medicine for critical care.
