This story reminds me of two of my horses. I have 8 horse - all rescued at sometime in their life. 4 by me and 4 by others whom I adopted them from. All of the ones I rescued came from the PMU industry. Two were supposed to be in foal but only one had a foal. We named them Cinnamon(Mom) and Nutmeg(filly). They were pretty inseparable and I felt so bad when it came time to send Nutmeg for training. She was gone for four months. Mom was OK but sad for the first few weeks. She was 5 years old when we got her, so I am sure that loosing a baby had happened to her before. Anyway after the four months we brought Nutmeg and her pal Shadow back. They(Mom and daughter) knew each other immediately. Now they are back to sleeping together in the stall. Cinnamon is also the leader of our herd. No other horse is allowed in the stall with her but Nutmeg. I am so glad that she(Cinnamon) is getting the chance to keep a baby and grow old with her.


I am so glad these wonderful goats survived the neglect and fear they were made to endure. One day I hope all these sweet creatures can live the lives they deserve. Keep on with your lifesaving work!


Thanks for sharing this story! It is heartbreaking that families and friends are torn apart in factory farms. I'm glad you've given families like Molly and Morgan a home. There's a special place in my heart for goats--one day I plan to move from the city and buy a place with land to give some goats like these a good home and lots of love.
