50th anniversary

Rosie, a beautiful mare rescued by Mountain Valley Horse Rescue from kill buyers at an auction in Salida on May 23,has given birth to a healthy colt! The little colt arrived healthy and without complications. Within an hour of birth, the little guy was standing and running laps around the corral — he even threw in a few bucks before settling in to nurse! In spite of his mothers’ starvation through the winter and thin appearance, she gave all she had to her baby and managed to produce a healthy foal. Mama Rosie is also doing well after the birth. Continue to follow this little guys’ progress on MVHR’s Facebook page! You can even contribute to his scholarship fund at www.coloradogives.org/MountainValleyHorseRescue and suggest a name for the handsome guy! Photo by McKenzie Arnold.
