Jubilee was born 3/10/14 at Toby's Legacy Equine Rescue, to a very relieved mom Darby, and a possibly even more relieved Lisa Bone (founder of Toby's Legacy).
This beautiful cremello filly was born totally blind, so will likely remain at the rescue, as one of its sanctuary residents, for the rest of her life.
Mommy Darby was saved from a Central California auction in January, by AHR. Without anything known other than the mare was "visibly, very pregnant," we decided to get her to safety. Toby's Legacy have done a wonderful job nursing Darby through her pregnancy, and we look forward to watching Jubilee grow!
In sadder news, the other pregnant mare we rescued at that same auction, an older paint pony named "Letty," lost her foal this week. Due to her advanced age and emaciation so late into her pregnancy, the odds were stacked against her. While we mourn for Letty's baby, Letty can now settle into a "normal" retirement, once the grief passes. Thank you to Jen, Doug, and family for being there for Letty, these past few months.
