  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - The rollercoaster ride
    asking for assistance to surrender reporting neglect and of course a few adoption enquiries as well Yaaay The website has been updated and now sporting a facebook feed and a new slide show layout which we are working on adding to as we write this newsletter An amazing local photography group has offered their services to help us with capturing some special pics of the horses for marketing to all of you out there Dude and Campbell are getting some training in the hope we can find them both a fabulous new home Ruby and Jewell headed off to their new home TOGETHER where we are certain they will be happy for the rest of their days Breeze also found herself a new home only 5 minutes from us where we can see her on a regular basis She has been part of the family through several ups and downs over the past couple of years so she will indeed be missed We have been asked to take on 3 horses owned by an elderly man who has had a stroke and been placed in a nursing home The stallion and 2 mares are very quiet and easy to manage and in desperate need of our assistance Whilst we are completely overloaded we feel there is no option but to take these horses in The stallion will need to be gelded immediately and both mares scanned to establish potential and very likely pregnancy They simply cannot be left where they are The paddock is dangerous and not at all an environment for a foal to be born It is incredibly surprising these guys do not have more injuries on them We have mostly young horses looking for homes where they can do further training and be started to a saddle

  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - July 2015 News
    really didnt need and is still taking its toll now Many of our paddocks are still too wet to stand fencing again or even contemplate putting livestock on them The most important things were safe though Our animals and people were all ok And with the losses suffered by so many other locals we considered ourselves very rich indeed Having said all of this it has certainly slowed our operations and as a result we are not currently financially or physically able to take in any further rescues It will be some weeks before that situation improves Tocal Field Days Tocal Field days this year was set to be a HUGE event for us with the responsibility of co ordinating the Livestock section Sadly due to road issues caused by the Super Storm in April the event was cancelled for the first time EVER Disappointing for many people but we are still moving forward to an even bigger display for 2016 Million Paws Walk Again we had the pleasure of supporting our friends at RSPCA with the annual Million Paws Walk at Speers Point Park around the lake in Newcastle We were so happy to assist with some of the beautiful dogs needing homes Mater was one of the most amazing well mannered and gentle dogs we have had the pleasure of meeting Seriously What is wrong with people Why do these animals end up in need It just breaks our hearts New Fencing Our team have worked tirelessly to refence several of our paddocks and replace some very old and damaged fencing There has been no financial investment from any sponsor for this work It has been paid for privately by the president and volunteers We are so happy to see new and safe fencing for the horses and as a result have been able to move several of our horses back to the main paddock Mitavite Our team were very lucky to be invited on a tour of the Mitavite factory at Somersby on the Central Coast of NSW This was an incredible opportunity for volunteers to view the process and high standards of production offered by the manufacturers of the products we use Many questions and answers were exchanged and a wonderful afternoon was had by all Volunteers We always struggle to attract and maintain volunteers And this year has been no different Recently we have struggled with a couple of volunteers being out with injury another going back to work full time and one even resigning from the ranks So we launched a campaign on facebook in June to see if we coudl encourage more people to take interest We were so excited that 15 people responded that they woudl turn up for the induction session We were completely gutted when only 1 person came So if you or someone you know is interested in giving some of your valuable time to feed water shovel and potentially brush please drop us a line info horsewelfare com

    would not have been more than 100 We rugged polished and fed Tristan and his 2 mates Lance Percy Had their feet and teeth done and fed them some more Not once did these boys cause us any grief management or handling issues They were absolute gentlemen from the start So you could imagine it was no surprise for us to see how well Tristan worked under saddle What an absolute honour it is to have been granted the opportunity to assist this old man regaining his health and stature What an incredible education he has been given over the period of his life And what a damn shame that no one other than us could see that value in those sad old eyes Tristan has now found the last home he will ever need He will be loved fed rugged and maintained until he is ready for the pasture in the sky And right now he s a long way off The even greater news is that you people helped us do this Without your support we would not be able to do what we do Thank you SO MUCH Today as I type this we still have 41

    man and sending the whole lot in one hit Its a simple answer for many and it also results in some cash in their pockets WIN WIN Hmmmmmm End of quarter books have been done Receipts are printed and will now be posted or emailled over the next few days We are finding it almost impossible to get hay at the moment Yes we were prepared before winter with a huge stockpile in the shed However as more mouths came through the gates than normal we soon depleted that resource OOPS Funds are low as usual and morale has been a little low given the incredible workload of Poo scooping etc with all the extra mouths Our volunteers do an amazing job and are often seen battling the elements when others may be curled up on a comfy lounge We are seeing so many other rescues close their doors and put up the No Vacancy signs We have no intention of doing this at all but we do pray that we can find some additional land to lease in the not too distant future Over the last fortnight we have been working tirelessly for no financial gain just to rehome a HUGE batch of pregnant pony mares with foals at foot There are still roughly 30 looking for new homes These are all completely UNHANDLED horses left to breed indescriminantly for the last few years So many gorgeous little faces amongst them and such a complete shame and waste to see them end up processed We have had several adoptions including long time herd member Yoshi finally finding the perfect home The dentist has been twice and worked through almost all of the horses We have been to Newcastle Equine Centre several times for surgical procedures All in all very
