Cyberfoal growing as fast as the foals it helps: is the free Internet service offered to breeders having lost mares and foals, during and after foaling. It also provides the availability and need of colostrum.

Cyberfoal was created in 1997 by Peter J.Hurst, breeding manager to a Thoroughbred farm in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Who began his career of breeding horses at Aston Park Stud, Oxfordshire, England, before emigrating to Canada in 1975.

Mares and foals unfortunately meet unforeseen circumstances during and after foaling. Realizing a need for breeders to help each other in these situations, Peter decided to set up the unique Internet service of, a free service offered with the support of a sponsor to breeders in need. This independent site, allows owners and breeding farms the opportunity to enter and view mares, foals and colostrum available at the touch of a button. Both parties closest to each other then discuss an amicable agreement. Many breeders are satisfied in offering their mares, in return of care and/or trade of a breeding, their priority being that of companionship to both mare and foal, when compatible. Through this service many mares and foals have been united and new friendships have been made by the cooperation of breeders helping each other. Cyberfoal brings together all breeds, an accomplishment seldom seen, but for the love of our foals.

The Cyberfoal mission is not to take away what nature has given, but give back what nature has taken and with this philosophy Cyberfoal has become a successful Network to world breeders.

With (North America) and its affiliates, Cyberfoal Australia and Cyberfoal UK/Europe, Cyberfoal is recognized as being the major Network to serving orphan foals. These sites can be accessed from, (North America). If Cyberfoal contributes to reuniting one orphan foal to a mare's loss, then it is serving the purpose it was designed, Peter remarks. The success of the Internet service has given Peter much attention to his compassion and voluntary service devoted to helping orphans within his Province of Alberta and over the Internet. This devotion has given him the title, "Angel of Foals" although he remarks, "angel may be too righteous."

Cyberfoal offers much information on foals, foaling and foal welfare. Supporting Cyberfoal offers our orphans a natural alternative. Please visit and leave your comments, it helps boost moral!

I wish all breeders a trouble free season, good luck.
