For 30 years, New Bolton Center has invited volunteers to assist clinicians and staff in caring for mares and foals during the busy foaling season. These “foal sitters” are vital to the functioning of the NICU, making it possible to provide the highest quality of care to patients by ensuring there is enough help to deliver the labor-intensive treatment around the clock.
New Bolton Center currently enlists 100 “foal sitters", about half of them returning volunteers.
