On the afternoon of 26 October 2018, MLHR received a distressed call about this young foal abandoned in an urban area of Dublin.
The age of the foal was estimated to be about 6 weeks old and we were told the mother was dead.
Two of our volunteers rushed to the scene, they could see a very frightened, dehydrated, skinny foal, he was so weak it did not take too long to catch him.
We named him Alex.
He is now in the care of one of our volunteers who is doing amazing round the clock care for this poor orphaned baby, including receiving veterinary attention and special feed.
Once again, we face another life with no value to certain people. This has to stop....fifth young foal in only a matter of weeks that we have rescued from abandonment.
