In Need Of A Nurse Mare?

Standardbred Canada's Nurse Mare Program is designed to assist in matching orphaned or rejected foals with nurse mares, and now the process is even easier.

Breeders who have a nurse mare (a mare who has just lost a foal) that could be matched with an orphan foal, or a foal that requires a nurse mare, are asked to post detailed information in the comments section below. 

To post your mare/foal on the registry, the following information is needed:

Your name/farm
Location of mare/foal (city/prov)
Telephone number(s)
Email address
Any other pertinent information (i.e. when foaled, frozen colostrum available etc.)

Please post below or inform Barb Wilson once your mare/foal has been matched so the registry can be updated. 

Postings will be monitored and published for one week if SC is not notified of a match.

Directions for posting your mare/foal on this page:
You must "log in" to the SC website (click on the red button at the top of the website).
If you do not already have an online account you need to create one.
Click on "create new account" and fill in the information.

If you prefer to register your mare/foal directly with SC, during business hours please contact:
Barb Wilson: (905) 858-3060 ext.231
