  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Romany
    she had been around people she had very little appropriate handling and did not lead or tie up This is one smart little girl she took to her education like a duck to water Forunately Romany had no injuries so her recovery was predominantly injection of the old wonder drug FEED Romany was very quickly placed with Trudi on the Gold Coast Trudi has taken up the training and handling practices and is currently starting break Romany now called Tina to saddle Thanks to Trudi for the updated photo A note from Trudi Just wanted to let you know that Tina is going really really well I took her to a pony club last weekend for a hack day just to get her used to being floated and going out and about and she just stood at the float and ate her hay she was great I have started the breaking process I have her taking the bridle with no hassles I am just going to take my time over the next couple of months and get her used to everything slowly As soon as I get a new camera I will send you some updated photos of her She

  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Charlie
    later Charlie was pretty impressed up until that point It was the first time in weeks that I had actually taken him somewhere on the float that did not directly result in veterinary poking and prodding Until of course the tools came out Poor Charlie 4 hours of surgery and the vet was still unable to get a good enough grip on the crown of either tooth to extract it The teeth are still not pertruding enough to get an accurate grip These two teeth are also inconsistent in their development unlike a normal tooth They are actually crumbling when gripped So again we have to wait and hope for growth The vet has advised to turn him out for another 3 months when we will review the growth It is possible we may have to wait up to 6 months before a successful operation can take place May 2009 Update After returning from Scone with Charlie I monitored his progress at home for a week He is such a special boy Not once has he objected to any of the treatments or handling the entire time he has been with us He loads himself on the float and travels so quietly you would not know he was there At home he gallops around the paddock kicking and bucking like a two year old He has put on so much weight the change is incredible He has even grown a couple of inches Thank God A bit of background In the most bizzare turn of events we discovered when Charlie arrived that he had been bred locally by good friends of ours Sue and Ted Sandery only a few k s up the road They were absolutely mortified to find out what had happened to Charlie He had been sold in good faith as a stunning foal at foot with his much loved mother He had been intentionally sold to be used as the Stud Stallion by the new owners In fact the purchaser had sent regular emails telling Sue and Ted how well he and his mother were going What an absolute shock it was for them to find out that the mare had died through a tragic accident within 24hrs of leaving their property and Charlie had been promoted as a rescue horse The story goes on and gets worse with all the lies and deceit So much so that it actually sickens me to think about it How some people sleep at night is beyond me On the positive side Sue and Ted are now so pleased Charlie is back here they are doing their bit as his carers for the next few months until surgery Thanks heaps to Sue and Ted They are fantastic people and very reputable animal owners and lovers I did not hesitate in accepting their offer to care for Charlie for the next few months June 2009 Update We ran a fundraiser BBQ at Bunnings for AHW on the 5th of this

    looked at us with those sad and frightened eyes we had no choice and I had an elbow in the ribs from Kel A 2yr old paint colt and completely unhandled When we got in and had a good look at him we realised he had a retained testicle as well He was obviously destined to be with us On return to the yards to collect him and ready for a long haul we were pleasantly surprised to find it took a lot less time than expected He was caught led and loaded within 30 minutes and we were off home After a couple of weeks of handling we will pay the big bucks and have the extensive gelding surgery done Next the teeth and the feet Then we will turn him out for a few weeks to gain condition and enjoy being a horse When we are confident that he is ready we will start him under saddle and look for a suitable home Today this little man has a future Yesterday he did not Read 2493 times Last modified on Thursday 29 November 2012 15 08 Tweet Image Gallery View the embedded image gallery online at http www

  • Horse Welfare Inc | Rescue | Re-habilitiation | Re-education - Chucky (Charlie)
    too much for them to handle They had purchased him as young pony and not realised the importance of appropriate training and education Being small he had simply been treated as a dog Cute and fun to play with As he has grown older and stronger he has become pushy and un manageable He is also incredibly overweight and at risk of foundering We will be working on his manners over the next few weeks until we are satisfied that his behaviour has improved We would really like to stress the importance of training and education in any horse no matter how small or large The little ones are incredibly cute and people easily fall into the trap of thinking that they will require less care and maintenance THe truth is that they are no less of a hassle than a larger horse Please think carefully before purchasing a mini horse or pony They are not toys and should not be treated as such Read 1607 times Last modified on Friday 23 November 2012 10 09 Tweet More in this category Welsh Ponies Koda back to top Horses Stories October 2015 1 December 2012 4 July 2012 1 March 2012

    our care The majority of these babies were not even yearlings Most likely weaned straight to slaughter With the use of the internet and social media we spread the word and had hundreds of calls from prospective new owners wishing to help take a pony or two As they were all unhandled we were very particular about who they would go to It is now September and we have placed
