Saving Abandoned Fly-grazing Equines
Registered Charity 1172769
We currently have 11 horses in our care under rehabilitation (May 2019) at our head quarters and a further 13 in the care of some of our fosterers .
Each came to us legally via serving the Abandonment Notice with the Landowners (Control of Horses Act 2015).
Each horse receives veterinary attention on arrival and subsequent medication, usually to manage liver damage (common with fly-grazed horses due to eating the poisonous Ragwort plant), parasite infection, worm burden, sores and wounds. In addition, all male horses (a high % of our herd) are castrated before re-homing to stop them from adding to the ‘over-breeding’ crisis from whence they came.
Unfortunately some horses are too ill to survive by the time we are able to take them.
Below are photos of some of our current 'herd', all being nursed back to full health by our band of wonderful volunteers, who visit them daily and care for their every need.
