Sunday's Hope by Janette Slack

Sunday's Hope
16" X 20"; Pastel on Board
A little over a year ago, Sunday was rescued from the slaughterhouse, along with her young foal. Upon arriving at Papa's Ranch Equine Rescue, it was discovered that Sunday was not only nursing; she was pregnant with a second foal, and was due to give birth just a few months later!
This beautiful mare, in poor condition when she arrived at the rescue, was eventually separated from her first offspring so that she could carry her fetus to term. We worried about her condition throughout the cold winter months, but with a little TLC and good nutrition, she pulled through.
On a warm spring night in April 2010, Sunday gave birth to a lovely foal, named Bonnie Lou. Bonnie has since grown into a healthy, affectionate, and happy horse. Mother and daughter will continue to live the good life at Papa's Ranch.
