Baby Tam was spotted by Marcia when she entered the sale ring at Elkhart auction. One look at this precious tiny baby and the sound of her frightened little whinny, made Marcia buy the tiny baby. Baby Tam was only 2 weeks old, when some heartless person brought her to the Elkhart auction alone to be sold. Marcia had her picked up right away and brought to a quarantine provider, but after 4 days Marcia chose to bring this little baby home, risking sickness to the healthy horses, to help this baby's odds of survival. Thankfully Tam did not get sick. A nursing mare Marcia owned, was convinced to nurse baby Tam as well as her own baby. Every 2 hours Tam was taken to the mare to nurse. We do feel that Tam would not have survived, being only 2 weeks old, without being able to nurse a mare. We also gave Tam milk replacer and probiotics to help her. This little girl was friendly from the moment she arrived, and has been a joy to share our home with. She has turned out to be a cute little Welsh pony, with a personality as big as a Percheron. We adore this little gift from God, Baby Tam will remain with us at PRRHR.
