But the struggles of the past came back, since the foal, Indiana, was weakened, presumably from the stressful life his mom lived while carrying him. At first he couldn't get milk from his mom.
"The first hours of life are crucial. We milked Strawberry and fed Indiana, but he was still very weak,” Rosa Chaparro, spokesperson from El Refugio Del Burrito, told The Dodo. "His life was clearly at risk so we decided to take them both to the equine hospital in Cordoba."
