Just one month ago, we rescued George and Tomahawk from a location in Devon where they had been confined to a concrete yard for almost a year. Now they’re settling into a life of loving care at our Sanctuary near Newton Abbot.
We offer no shame advice and support to horse owners. It is for this reason we were contacted by George and Tomahawk’s owner who had been struggling to provide the level of care these horses needed due to a change in their personal circumstances.
We found that the Cob and Shetland pony pair had been confined to their yard with just a cattle-shed for shelter. The owner was no longer able to tend to them.
They had various health issues and their routine worming and lice treatments were long-overdue, meaning they were burdened with internal and external parasites.
We agreed with the owner that George and Tomahawk’s needs could not be met under the circumstances, so an emergency intervention was taken by our charity – bringing great relief to their owner.
