|GenUwine and his nurse mother Enduring Flight|
The vets tried to get Genuwine out of the trailer but he wouldn't leave his mother. So Jim got inside the trailer and carefully walked him through his mother's legs and down the ramp. He was escorted into the vet hospital and examined thoroughly. He was admitted to the hospital and put on an IV. Genuwine had various ailments including dehydration, urinary and intestinal blockages and liver toxicity. He stayed in intensive care for several days while we looked for a nurse mare to raise him. During his stay at the hospital two potential nurse mares were introduced to him but were rejected because they were aggressive towards him. When he was released from UC Davis, we took Genuwine to Victory Rose Thoroughbreds to try again to introduce him to one of those mares. Each mare had recently lost a foal and was a good candidate for nurse mare. Ellen Jackson, proprietress of Victory Rose was willing to work with the mare named Enduring Flight to reintroduce them and see if they would bond. After three days of clever but safe exposure to each other, Enduring Flight began to bond and little Genuwine was overjoyed to have an equine mother again.
