Marta Moran Bishop has lovingly created the real-life poignant tale of Dinky: The Nurse Mare’s Foal. Narrated by the central character, Dinky, readers are given a window into the heartbreaking life that can await a nurse mare foal. This is a powerful story highlighting the inhumane practice of a foal being bred for the sole purpose of producing milk in the mare, so she can nourish a high-dollar mare’s foal.
Young Dinky's battle for survival begins when he is taken to a farm where the probability of his being sold to a meat market or a tanner is high. Dinky is frightened and alone. His only chance to be free, to live and enjoy life, is to be adopted by caring humans.
Dinky: The Nurse Mare’s Foal is an immensely satisfying book that evokes our senses and touches us deeply
