Some of the horses they have rescued ~
BENJI: came to her in September 2011 in emaciated condition. He had been through a few hands but no one could seem to get any weight on him. They took him on and he is just amazing now. Benji is a high maintenance horse thought and must always have 2 hard feeds per day to keep the weight on him. If he misses a meal he will drop weight. He is 25 years old, 16.2hh and going strong.
Benji after a few months in care:
BILLY BOB: was surrendered due to having a hoof injury and his current owner couldn't care for him any more. His actual owner sadly died suddenly a few years ago and his partner kept Billy Bob but sadly couldn't give him what he needed. He is a STB who is around 20 years old and sadly has ring bone and arthritis in his back legs. We have started him on our awesome herbal plan which would work wonders. Billy Bob has fit right in with Benji and Jet and who are both 25 years old and the three old men just plod around the property together on their little adventures all day. They are like the 3 stooges.
Billy Bob is currently looking for sponsors at $10 per week. If you can help please set up a direct debit into the bank account below and please use your surname and "BILLY" as the reference. Also, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that you will be sponsoring him. Thank you so much for your kind support and for helping us help the horses xxx
Name: Save A Horse Australia Reference: Your surname and "Billy"
GRANDMA: I first saw Grandma at the Gympie horse sale in the meat buyer section. She was so skinny, weak and unwell and seeing her in such a state broke my heart. She was purchased by a meat buyer and I then bought her from him. She came to our Gilston Rehabilitation Centre for 7 months before being rehomed to an amazing loving family who were looking for a beautiful companion.
Before ~ in poor condition
After ~ 3 monts later, happy and healthy
BRANDY: Brandy’s old owner surrendered her when she couldn't provide the treatment the horse needed. She came from a property in Dalby QLD with a nasty skin infection which was very similar to ringworm and infected rain scald. We had many tests done which all came back inconclusive and after she suffered a few seizures we made the very hard decision to have her euthanized. Brandy was with us for over a year and left hoof prints on all of our hearts.
FREYA: I first saw Freya at the Gympie sales in the meat buyers section with her little foal who was only about 2 months old. I saw her while there doing some research and I fell in love with the very frightened unhandled mare. After the sale I was trying to track down what knackery bought her and when I found her they told me that her foal had already been killed. I drove out to the knackery on kill day and bought Freya home, alone and scared and after 9 months of rehabilitation and some training Freya found the most amazing home where she will be loved forever.
HOPE: Hope was rescued from the knackery as a weanling. She was a wild unhandled little filly and the vet said she was in pretty bad health but after 8 months of rehabilitation and training she turned out to be a beautiful little filly who has been adopted into an awesome forever home.
