When An Orphaned Foal Needed Help, An Unlikely Hero Saved The Day
When Legacy the Clydesdale was born, it was supposed to be a joyous occasion at Priest Welsh Clydesdales in Canada. Unfortunately, it was a sad time. Only a day after her birth, Legacy’s mother passed away. Emily Welsh, the owner of the farm, was understandably heartbroken. Even going into the barn was emotionally draining for her, but there was a helpless foal who needed her love and care.
Buttercup, a lovely little goat, was brought to the farm to provide milk for Legacy.
Aside from food, Buttercup has also provided Legacy with love and affection.
Welsh says that she was initially afraid that Legacy wouldn’t make it past her first week.
“Buttercup protects her, loves her, and plays with her,” Welsh says. “We owe her life to Buttercup, and we thank her every day.”
And Buttercup seems perfectly content to be this horse’s mom.
