Tuska’s dam came to BEHS along with several other horses. She and her herdmates were left to run on pasture and breed. After they escaped their pasture multiple times, resulting in the death of one herdmate, law enforcement stepped in. The owners realized they could not provide for the herd of horses and surrendered them to several rescues. Tuska’s dam Nike was a young mare who no one believed was pregnant - so imagine her foster mom’s surprise when she walked out one morning to find a newborn colt. She fell in love with the little guy and decided she couldn’t part with him. Congrats Cathy and Tuska!
