Update on Benji

This beautiful boy came to me in September 2011 in an emaciated condition. He had been through a few hands but no one could seem to get any weight on him. We took him on and he is just amazing now. Benji is a high maintenance horse though 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.

New Rescue Billy Bob

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 saveahorseaustralia@yahoo.com.au 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

Rescue Horse Barney

Barney was rescued OTT when he was on his way to the slaughter house but the young girl who rescued him couldn't keep him so he was surrendered to us. He is 4 years old and broken to saddle but very green. Barney is coated in itch but his beautiful soft temperament makes doing anything with him a breeze.

RIP Jack

Jack was surrendered with grey horse melanoma which were growing too fast and too quick. Sadly the big one on his head started to open up and he was in pain. The vet suggested putting him to sleep. He was only 12 years old. This photo was taken when Jack was used in a photo shoot with the beautiful pin up model Miss Amanda. Sadly, Jack was put to sleep at 1pm on Feb 13th, he was buried next to Tess under the beautiful big tree in our main paddock. He is no longer in pain. RIP beautiful boy

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to rainbow bridge and bring you home again.
sad farewell words were spoken, a sad and long good-bye,
You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why.
My heart's still active in sadness, and secret tears still flow;
What it meant to lose you no one can ever know.
But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more,
To remember all the happy times; life still has much in store.
Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today:
A hallowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay.

RIP Baby Boy
