At ERF HQ, we would like to say a huge thank you to all our members and supporters who have contacted us today to offer their support and their help. We have been extremely moved that so many of you have taken the time to get in touch and assure you all that we are continuing forward with ERF despite the short term issues facing us.
One e-mail in particular has reminded us of the impact that we can have on both equines and their owners and the family concerned have kindly allowed us to share it with you:
“I am Amanda and I have Hugo. I was fortunate enough not to be on the mailing list for the nasty e-mail, but feel non the less that I should contact you and let you know that I think you are doing a good job.
I have had Hugo now for just over a month. To see his personality change day by day, his confusion and wariness diminishes day by day. He wickers at us when we approach and loves to sleep in his stable whislt being groomed and hugged by us all. Every day I look at him and silently thank you for finding him and not giving up the fight to get him to safety. It is thanks to you he is here with us, he has brought joy and love to us all and a reason for not giving in to the bullys at school for my daughter. She comes home every day and tells him her problems, she spends hours grooming and loving him and as he gets fitter she is looking forward to riding him more.
This is purely down to your wonderful organisation and the dedicated caring people who run it. You are to be admired and assisted, not abused. “
Once again, thank you to every one of you who have helped to make this possible.
