In September 2017 we took in a very handsome colt foal from Shropshire called Lucas who was only a couple weeks old. Sadly, after he was born, he was rejected by the mother to the extent that she started attacking and kicking him so he was in real danger.
Lucas was separated from his mother for his own safety and although the owner wanted to keep the mare, he didn’t really know how to cope with a new born foal that will need round the clock bottle feeding every few hours. Upon returning to Island Farm Lucas was introduced to Briony, a mare donkey who has a wonderful nature and is an excellent foster mother.
Lucas and Briony quickly bonded and her calming nature has meant that Lucas has settled in very well.
