Alicia was born at El Refugio del Burrito in May 2009… completely by surprise! Her poor mother, Nana, had endured a life of abandonment and neglect; she had 16 owners in 11 years and the last one exchanged her for a moped.
When she arrived to us, Alicia was so thin and in such a poor condition that we never thought she could be pregnant. Then, on Spanish Mother’s Day 2009, we found a beautiful foal running around Nana’s paddock. Unfortunately, Nana passed away one year later, but her wonderful gift lives with us.
