“The BLM at our local corrals in Burns, Oregon, asked us to take some foals who had been orphaned during a roundup here,” Staples said. “We took four babies, all of whom had just lost their mamas. We named them Coco, Willow, Sugar and Two Spots.”
Magnolia hadn’t met any other horses yet at the sanctuary when her rescuers decided she should at least meet the four new babies, whom sanctuary workers had been nursing back to health since they arrived.
“We kept looking at her having lost her baby and then looking at the foals who had lost their mamas and after a week we just said, ‘Let’s give it a try,'” Staples said.
