Cause: Three young foals were gathered (ages between 4 and 6 weeks), including a pinto. When the three mares and their respective foals were in a pen designated for mares and foals, one of the mares kicked the pinto foal causing massive head injuries. Unfortunately, the foal had to be euthanized due to its injuries. The public did not see the incident, but in the interest of transparency, they were advised of what happened.
