  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Mount George Ponies
    We have been asked to remove 4 pony geldings of welsh pony decent from a property near mount george in NSW These ponies were originally part of a larger group purchased as a rescue project back in 2006 They have since been left unhandled and abandoned on the property Several other ponies have died from a series of illnesses and injuries which may include toxic poisoning which we assume to be plant based These boys were gelded as unhandled 2yr olds through a crush in 2006 They have not been handled since and there are no facilities on the property to do so We need to move them to a neighbouring property to yard and load them so we can bring them home We are working with local people to establish a feeding routine close to the exit point of the property Once this is done we will be easily able to relocate the horses Read 2876 times Last modified on Monday 26 October 2015 18 56 Tweet More in this category Charlie Romany back to top Horses Stories October 2015 1 December 2012 4 July 2012 1 March 2012 1 October 2011 11 Support Us Today You can donate

    to a property in Maitland on November 14th 2012 It was reported there was a pony in a paddock who could not walk and had been abandoned by her owners What we found was disgraceful A lovely little brown 8yr old shetland mare who was crippled with the pain of founder and complete hoof neglect Her toes were almost curled into eyptian slippers We provided her pain relief while we returned home to collect the float This darling little girl loaded without problem and travelled home beautifully The farrier tended to her feet 2 days later and she will now be trimmed every 4 weeks Her tendons have been stretched and her hind legs twist and skew as she walks She has learnt to survive this way so her back toes did not hit her front legs The process could take up to 12 moths to get her right Read 2634 times Last modified on Monday 26 October 2015 19 42 Tweet More in this category Ruby Jewel Brumbies for all uses back to top Horses Stories October 2015 1 December 2012 4 July 2012 1 March 2012 1 October 2011 11 Support Us Today You can donate to Horse

  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Ruby & Jewel
    suspected they may have been mother and daughter Both mares sold to slaughter for 120 After some discussion later that evening we made a call to the dogger and arranged to buy both girls the next day When we turned up to collect them from the doggers paddock they were standing head to tail at the furtherest point of the paddock away from all the other horses There was no way on earth we couldve taken one without the other Knowing nothing about these girls we walked straight up to them in the paddock caught them led them out and loaded straight onto the float The rehab for these girls took a few months They have already had one failed adoption and have come back to us to recover It is so sad to see this happen to some horses time and time again And yes we do have a process and a checking mechanism to pick up on these things If we didnt we may never have caught the situation when we did Sadly it may only be a few weeks between a healthy and unhealthy horse if the owner is simply not feeding appropriately Ruby and Jewell are

    s right another one emerges All of this is a result of very poor hoof management As the old saying goes No Hoof No Horse And that was very nearly the case when we took over her care Fiesta is not yet started under saddle but we re certain she will be a willing candidate when the time is right Read 1830 times Last modified on Wednesday 28 November 2012

  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Mt George Girls
    an old set of timber bush yards the owner had constructed many years ago They were still reasonably functional So we simply walked into the yards and threw hay around The horses just followed One of the mares had a halter hanging around her neck which had obviously been there for some time I just reached up gently as she followed me and took hold of it She led along into the yard with me and stood quietly eating the hay One by one the mares and foals followed us into yards The gates were closed calmly and each of the older mares were haltered relatively easily Not bad for 2 yrs without handling At that point it absolutely flogged down We took shelter for about 10 minutes until it passed and then fed and watered the girls and left them for the night The next morning in the pouring rain we were greeted by calls from the girls as we arrived They were then caught and led with foals in tow to the bottom of the property and into the waiting round yard Several downpours later The truck arrived Only two of the mares were daunted by the ramp but the entire exercise was relatively simple THEN down came the rain again The truck got bogged and we had to winch it out with one of the cars Truck and horses slowly inched out onto the road The yards were packed up in the rain and loaded back onto the trailer Everyone was completely soaked It was so good to get into some dry clothes But it wasn t over yet We had to now get moving and get ahead of the truck to unload and construct the race again Finally the girls arrived to their new paddock fully

    line between feeding to fatten and feeding to founder Keeping in mind that founder can occur as much from lack of feed as it does from overfeeding Fortunately Heather is tough old bird and both her and the foal went from strength to strength very quickly In fact Heather is still with us 6 years later at the ripe old age of 27yrs And it doesn t look like she
