Mustang A Day Challenge Painting #280 Alder Hill Farm Rescue's Carmel

Carmel as a Weanling

Tonights painting is of Alder Hill Farm's Carmel.
Carmel was one of  64 foals rescued in 2004 by Alder Hill Farm. His mother was a mustang who was put into the premarin production lines. Foals  produced from this process are rarely left with their dam's more than 4 weeks. Caramel is a special horse that in addition to being a premarin foal, Carmel also has Orphan Foal syndrome.  Earlier in the Mustang A Day Challenge I wrote two blog posts about the condition. The condition is also called Equine Autism.

As a result of his condition Carmel is in permanent sanctuary at Alder Hill Farm. In addition to rescue and rehabilitation, Alder Hill Farm provides a unique opportunity  for those who have no place to keep or adopt a horse through sponsorship of the rescue's permanent residents.   For information on Sponsorship of one of the permanent residents of Alder Hill Farm you can contact them at
