MARE and her FOAL
 

 

    

It was the afternoon time of 8th Oct 2011, a Horse (Mare) was found wondering along with her foal near Khandhari, Agra. The mare seemed to be in a good condition but the foal had a fracture in the hind leg. Somebody provided information about the mare and a foal to Nagar Nigam Agra. They then picked up both the mare and the foal and brought them to PFA Agra. The mother refused to leave the foal and seemed very concerned about her baby. As soon as the vehicle arrived at the hospital both of them were thoroughly checked. On the first day we allowed the foal to rest and provide it with food and water. The next day we prepared the plaster for the hind leg of the foal. We had to restrain the foal so we gave it an injection to anaesthetize it. Then we stretched the leg of the foal and applied the plaster. As a supportive therapy we gave it a pain killer, multivitamins and drips.  Throughout the treatment the mother hovered around its baby and never left it alone.

This was a difficult case for us as the mare was a real fighter. Since the mare never left the foal, and it didn't allow anyone to come near her baby, we had to separate the two in order to be able to treat the foal. This was difficult and one of our helpers was injured during this process. After the treatment, we definitely united the two together again. PFA Agra thanks its staff for their persistence in treating the foal. Hopefully the leg will heal and it will be able to bear the weight.

Truly, LOVE is an emotion not only limited to humans.

  • We were fortunate enough to have the members of Jain Community donate food for animals. They were impressed by the work we do and have promised to help us in the future also. The food they donated is enough to last one month.
  • The DFO (District Forest Officer) of Agra had called a meeting of all animal NGOs. It was a meeting wherein all NGOs and the forest department come under one grid, know each other and can contact each other as and when a problem required.The DFO is planning a meeting every alternate month to keep everyone updated.
  • Carolien from Holland is sending 3 student vets for their internship at PFA Agra. If this venture is a success, then hopefully PFA Agra will have steady stream of helpers which we currently lack.
