Mademoiselle is one of 13 pregnant mares that were rescued from the Fallon feed lots. Shockingly 13 pregnant mares were sent there with a straight ticket to the slaughter. We couldn't believe the cold heartedness of people.  Amazing...

They came from a breeder who has no idea what life is...all these mommas AND their foals would all be dead...for no reason!  We have kept the last two of the group as these two have something special in common...They are mother and daughter and they must stay together.  We have renamed them Madame and Mademoiselle, much more fitting names for two beautiful saved mares. 

Mademoiselle just gave birth to her foal, we have named him Galant Duke II.  Can you image him being pulled from her body to go to the slaughter?  We can't either.

Mademoiselle and Duke are partially sponsored by Ellen Weinfurtner - Thank you!
