Clues is a beautiful 12yo, ex-pointer, only recently ex. He was taken into The Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital on Monday for Colic surgery, but unfortunately due to personal circumstances his owner is no longer able to keep him post surgery and the sad decision was taken that he would need to be put to sleep, as no one would want to take on a horse immediately post colic surgery.
We received a call from Leahurst 2 days ago (11th Jun 2020) asking if we would be able to give this real gent of a horse a home, as we are experienced in post surgery care, this isn’t a put off to us and of course we were happy to help and agreed to take him on and following a couple more days in Hospital, we were able to bring him home this morning.
We will obviously be taking one day at a time, as he is still high risk of complications, but we hope that we will be able to get him thru his recovery and in a few months be able to start rehabilitating him to search for his forever home in his own time.
Chaos has arrived with us on 10th June 2020, we don’t know the full circumstances around him ending up without his mum, so won’t speculate, we just know he urgently needed somewhere safe to avoid the alternative. We estimate he is around 6 weeks old, so have started him on mares replacement milk, he is very, very nervous, but we will soon show him all the love in the world and gain his trust.
We want to say a huge thank you to those responsible for making him safe.
“Mitas” arrived at 4.30am this morning, after a very long trip from France. Mitas is an 11yo, former racehorse, very much loved by his whole family.
Sadly his family/trainers had a bad experience with rehoming, leaving them very worried about trying it again, but with out endless space or money, they cant possibly keep all of their retirees, although believe me, they would if they could, they spoil them rotten and really do love them like children.
So it was agreed that is was in Mitas’ best interest to come here for rehoming, where we can find the person who best suits him and protect him, with one of our permanent loan contracts, his trainers have made sure that they covered our initial lay out costs, by having him up to date with dentist, farrier, vaccinations etc.
He will be allowed ample time to settle in before the rehoming process starts, but we do have a long list of prospective loaners already, so wont be taking anymore enquiries at the moment, thank you ,
