SUMMERLAND – A local woman is looking for the owner of a one-month old filly who wandered onto her property earlier this week.

Shelly White of Summerland is a breeder of hypoallergenic Curly Horses. She estimates the foal to be only around one month old, says she is tame and accustomed to people, but is clearly missing her mother.

“There appears to be no other loose horses in that area and it is basically inaccessible to the feral horse population in the Okanagan as they would have to cross either the trestle or the raging Trout Creek to get to this area,” she says on her Facebook page. “She is safe for now, but would love to reunite her with her dam.”

White found the horse Tuesday, May 3 has been feeding her warmed goat milk. She says the foal is healthy and in good spirits.

Her post has already been shared more than 100 times.
