Traumatised orphaned foal needs surrogate mum to survive

A traumatised orphaned foal needs a surrogate mother after struggling to feed from a bottle.

Bluebells Tornado, or Tor for short, is only 13 days old, and sadly his mother Lottie, 13, died from colic after giving birth.

Owner Andy Harvey, 47, from Aylesbury is struggling to feed Tor by hand because the youngster is traumatised and isn’t taking enough milk.

He said: “We really need to find a mare who may have lost a foal, it could potentially save Tor’s life.

“After his mother died he nuzzled her and tried to make her wake up, it was awful.”
