Dolly finds sanctuary with her new foal at CHAPS
CHAPS offers care to young mother 'Dolly' and her foal
At the age of just 2 years old, Dolly unexpectedly gave birth to a beautiful baby girl foal. The owner called CHAPS for assistance, concerned about how Dolly would take to motherhood given her young age. Struggling to feed her new-born and with lots of attention from curious onlookers she was getting extremely stressed and was at risk of becoming detached from her foal.
The CHAPS team stepped in to help, giving Dolly and her youngster a new, private home. Both mother and baby are now doing extremely well and Dolly is proving to be a natural at motherhood, giving her baby lots of attention and love. The only thing missing is a name for Dolly's baby.
If you'd like to help Dolly and her foal, you can donate online. Don't forget to leave a name suggestion in the message box!
All name suggestions will be drawn on Thursday 9th June.
