#Educate-Support-Change 
Registered Charity No. 1180625
We would like to welcome our new subscribers to our Newsletter, we hope you enjoy our updates and blogs. Please encourage your friends to sign up too!
We are now officially in Autumn, this is when we launch our winter campaign, "Winter Is Coming". 
This year we are anticipating a high volume of calls, and so we are running a fundraising campaign to assist us with essential costs associated with answering the calls that we receive. 

Each and every call that we receive requires follow up, this includes at least one call back to the reporter. Each call requires a minimum of one visit, but generally at least 2 or more follow up visits take place, depending on the severity, training and recommendations for the owner. 
We sometimes assist the owners with support (not financial), when or if vets, or other professionals are required, this is an additional transport cost. 
Why do we do this? - To let the owners know we do what we say and to let you, our supporters, know we do what we say. 
We ensure that any recommendations that we make to owners are acted upon. If not we collaborate with statutory authorities to ensure action is taken. Our main concern first and foremost is the horses welfare. 
This is why we are asking for support.
 
Above is one of many images of the type of situation we encounter on a regular basis. There are so many more horses and ponies that need our help. 
“A Life Worth Living"
 
As owners, keepers and care providers, it is our responsibility to ensure that the horses and ponies in our care have all their needs met appropriately and responsibly.In the UK, we have Codes of Practices as guidance.
After our intervention, this youngster has been moved to an appropriate environment and received appropriate worming. They now also have an appropriate diet. Sometimes, a lttle advice and support can improve the lives of the horses that we encounter on our calls. 
We advise owners on the codes of practice to enhance the lives of their horses and ponies. 
Tapas  
 
Freedom of Choice is a luxury for many. Having the freedom to pick, choose and browse a decadent menu with a vast selection and varity of flavours and textures provides horses and ponies with the ability to forage, self-select and is a form of enrichment.
Autumn provides endless opportunities to tickle the taste-buds for many horses. Rosehips, blackberrys, cleavers, nettles, willow bark, the list is endless. 
We caught up with this pony meticulously blackberry picking.
Judging by his face it was well worth it.

NB: Please ensure that there is appropriate foraging for you horse/pony so that they are not tempted to ingest plant/berries that may be toxic.
 


Amazing Supporters

We also have some collection boxes out and about in the local area, and the generous customers of County Stores in Three Crosses have raised £40.00 in collections.
