I thought it might be good to post this link to Coolmore's foster mares. The Coolmore Foster Mares & Foals - "Like any of the foster foals at Coolmore, Ginger’s own foal is being hand-reared and when old enough will be weaned onto bucket feeding. The foster mares are chosen for their excellent temperament and robust constitution which their foals inherit. They quickly settle and thrive in their new routine, bonding with other foals of a similar age. Most of the foster foals are re-homed as due to their placid nature they make wonderful mounts for both children and adults. A number will also remain at Coolmore, the fillies eventually becoming foster mares themselves while the colts make excellent teaser stallions." Coolmore also has a US farm and an Australian farm. They are the largest TB corporation in the world.
