The mother and colt were surrendered to the SPCA and rushed to the New England Equine Medical Center in Dover, where the colt died. They required at least $1,500 in medical care, he said.
The mother and three other horses — an 11-year-old gelding, a 2-year-old mini-stallion and a 15-year-old roan gelding — are recovering at the SPCA barn in Stratham. The SPCA is seeking donations to help pay for their care. They will be put up for adoption once they recover, Sprowl said.
To donate to the SPCA, go to nhspca.org, call 603-772-2921, ext. 106, or send contributions to New Hampshire SPCA, PO Box 196, Stratham, NH 03885.
