Amazingly, despite growing up on a dairy goat farm where she was primarily valued for the milk she produced, it soon became abundantly clear that Buttercup possessed an even greater quality - the ability to nourish the lonely little horse's soul.
That has made all the difference.
"Buttercup has taken over the mom role as well as us with bottles. They have become inseparable!!" wrote Welsh. "Buttercup protects her, loves her and plays with her. Legacy is now 5 months old and I was scared she wouldn't make it past the first week. We owe her life to Buttercup and thank her everyday."
