Our 2 beautiful Trotters have now been with us for 2 weeks, and what a change we have seen in them already. Today they came in for a groom (which they adore!) a trim up and probably their first ever taste of being rugged up. The weather is set to turn bitterly cold this next week and as we are trying to keep weight on the girls we thought they’d benefit from being rugged up. They are moving so much better on their feet now and seeing them play about in the field together like a couple of youngsters is truly heartwarming. These girls have such wonderful kind temperaments and are sure to make whoever adopts them extremely happy.

We couldn’t resist posting some photos of Brandy (formerly Gucci) and her new pal enjoying the sun this week.

(P.S Brandy is the one with the bigger ears!)

Our gorgeous pair of donkeys, Wilbur and Piona, have settled  into their new life up in Normandy with adopters Liz & Sue. These are two very lucky donkeys who are enjoying being loved and pampered, a lifetime away from the dreadful life we rescued Wilbur from last year.

We were delighted to receive some photos through today of the pair proudly showing off their new home!

You can see the video of Wibur’s arrival at ERF on the right of your screen.

A few weeks ago ERF heard about the plight of Gasparin, a beautiful 15 yr old Norwegian Fjord gelding that was on his way to being sold to the abattoir. His French owners had acquired a property 5 years previous, and with it came a pony, Gasparin. They had tried selling him, to no avail, because of his previous history of laminitis. They felt their only option of a buyer was the abattoir, until someone thankfully suggested ERF. Happily, they agreed that ERF could take him under their wing and try and find him a new adoptive family in the future. What struck us straight away with Gasparin was his kind and generous nature, despite the pain he was in from his feet.

Last Monday we picked up a very fat and lonely Gasparin…

Last week ERF were alerted to a horse that had been found roaming around a field and  had been taken to the safety of an local family’s paddock whilst a owner was sought. ERF went out and took photos of the horse and treated some minor health problems that were apparent. We advised that the Gendarmes and Maire should be informed, the people had already enquired within the local community to no avail. After 3 weeks since first being found, a gentleman, who had been asked if the horse was his in the beginning, came forward after realising the person that he was paying to look after his horse hadn’t actually noticed it had gone missing all these weeks! Owner and horse were happily reunited and the horse has now found a lovely lady to look after him for the rest of his days.

A month ago we were contacted by a very distraught lady who needed to find a special home for one of her horses. The lady breeds top level dressage horses, but on Christmas Eve last year her beloved young Trakhener horse, Accord, got cast in his box and devastatingly injured his vertebrae. Not only was this the sudden end to a promising dressage career, but the situation was worsened by him constantly running around with the other young horses in the field, hindering his recovery and potentially threatening his life.

In June, we were alerted by a member of the public to 6 donkeys that were in a field in the South of France (location cannot be disclosed for privacy reasons) that had feet in poor condition, obviously having not been trimmed for some time. (more…)
