We received this submission from a long-time Foal Patrol follower in Michigan over the weekend. We thank Gail for asking important questions and for her engagement with Foal Patrol.
"Congratulations on a very well done Foal Patrol Season! I have learned so much from the Education blog and appreciate all the features for fans of all ages. You have done a fantastic job answering so many questions, communicating with the participating farms and sharing so many updates, resources, photos and videos.
One of the things that impressed me this year was the very timely communication between Foal Patrol and the farms when we followers submitted concerns about things we observed and didn't understand. You were then able to respond quickly to us, both personally and with an update on Foal Patrol, with appropriate links on the Education blog to help educate us about the different circumstances... Life for humans and animals is not always predictable, even in the best of circumstances! Openness and honesty are what allow us to support each other."
