Would love to adopt a rescue donkey (or two). I have a small holding in Dargle. There is horse stables and we have some lovely green fields they could graze on. They would be well looked after and loved.

 Gold Circle Support Horse Welfare Yet Again

Gold Circle has again helped horses in need by their generous donation of a Ford Ranger 4X4 to the Official Horse Welfare in KZN, The Coastal Horse Care Unit. The hand over took place at Greyville Race Course Parade ring on the 24 June 2013.  The Coastal Horse Care Unit was in need of a vehicle to continue with their rural outreach program, which helps rural working horses
in the rural areas. Not only have they donated a much needed vehicle, but they are also assisting financially with these outreach clinics.

These rural horses form a vital function for rural people assisting them in herding cattle, transport, tilling fields and pack animals. The horse owners use these horses in sometimes very remote areas where they don’t have access to vets, feed, Farriers etc. CHCU have been making inroads into these areas and assisting these horses and their owners over the last four year.

Gill Olmesdahl Chairperson of The Coastal Horse Care Unit said that “the demand for our work is increasing yearly and the costs are escalating. We currents helping about 1400 rural horses per year. We estimate the amount of horses in the rural areas to be between 4500 – 7000. So we still have a lots of work to do!

Our rural outreach program assists with Dipping, de-worming, inoculating these horses. We also assist with tack which is a huge problem for these horses as they sometimes get terrible injuries from bad fitting and make-shift tack and saddles. We also give in field training where we can. The problems and injuries we find with these rural horses are normally due to lack of resources and ignorance. We believe that Education helps solve Welfare Solutions. We have an Education program in place with the help of an International Horse Welfare organisation which will assist in educating some of these horses’ owners in the care of their horses. This educational
program trains them in Farriery, Saddlery, Wound Care and general horse care.” We hope by giving this training to these horse owners, we will not only be helping the horses, but by giving these rural people these skills, they can earn a living, by helping other horse owners and horses in their areas.

Gill Olmesdahl said this generous donation by Gold Circle who, are the major supporters of CHCU is really going to give us the resources to assist more rural horses. Words cannot describe how thankful we are for their Support.

If anyone would like to support our Rural Outreach program for horses or donate Tack. Please call Vanessa Beets our Clinic Coordinator 083 633 8986

Information regarding our Rural Outreach Program call Gill Olmesdahl 073 550 3061
