ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Alaska Bird and Farm Animal Rescue, an animal education rehabilitation and petting farm, welcomed a "miniature" addition to their group this spring.
Mare, "Star of Bethlehem" gave birth to a colt just over two weeks ago. The newborn does not have a name yet, but he is what some people may consider a miracle.
Star birthed newborn miniature horse, "Daddy's Girl" in 2010, but it died after a mauling by two bulldogs.
Star's most recent colt is her first baby horse to survive past the first few crucial days.
Casey Jones, who runs The Alaska Bird and Farm Animal Rescue said the public is welcome to meet the new little horse. "We just love these little guys and we love to share it with the community," she said.
The Alaska Bird and Farm Animal Rescue on East 22nd Avenue will hold a fundraiser open house on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Currently, the farm is funded through donations and out of the owner's pocket.
