The SPCA has taken ownership of a severely neglected and abused mare.

The truly despicable side to this case is that the owner is someone who has a long standing history in the horse community and claims to know how to care for these magnificent creatures. Its owner has shown a blatant disregard for the animal’s physical and mental well-being leaving it to essentially fend for itself with no access to food.

Her condition is one of the worst we have encountered including malnutrition, dehydration, hoof and dental damage. Standing at +-15.5 hands she weighs 350 kg which is staggeringly underweight.

Our goal is to rehabilitate this horse and work with the equine community to find this soul a loving home for the future.
She will have to undergo extensive veterinary and dental checks to assess the full extent of her health before she can be re-homed, however we will share her progress with you over the next few weeks.

If you are interested in adoption or assisting with her care please email or call 021 700 4141 for more information.
