Remus Winter Feed Appeal
This winter we are aiming to raise £2,500 with our winter feed appeal, to help feed not only our veterans and permanent residents at Remus Horse Sanctuary, but also those neglected unloved, abandoned animals that are either tethered with no access to food or left wandering and unwanted with no food and no shelter, such as those pictured alongside.
You can contribute to our appeal here and help save lives!
The Importance of Winter Feed
With 40+ veterans at Remus alone, we decided early in November to step up and start a winter campaign to help with their feeding bill. Every single donation no matter how large or small will be of huge benefit not only to them but to the starving animals that no-one cares for. Keeping these animals safe, warm, well fed and with the special dietary care they need is at a considerable cost. Keeping an animal fed over winter will give it a chance to thrive into Spring. Forage also helps a horse keep warm. Without your help, many animals will die a slow, painful and unnecessary death.
We believe that ‘old horse’ should not equal ‘thin horse’ and all of our horses are weighed weekly on a weighbridge to ensure that we can monitor their weight. They have high fibre and high caloric food if we require them to gain weight, and those with poor dentition have this in a sloppy porridge consistency. Old age is not an illness and horses can cope very well with being old. However, its important to recognise that it does take a lot of work to keep on top of the needs of the older horse and as they live longer, naturally the problems increase.
We’ve said it before, the Sanctuary is full and we literally cannot take any more animals in right now and, as we are entirely self-funded, without your support here is just no way that we can continue. Everything costs money and the onset of the cold weather makes it even more tough as feed and heating bills increase. Please donate to our Winter Feed Appeal here.
Any donations, large or small, are welcomed and all will impact on our fundraising total and help feed animals in need.
We believe, that with your help, we can make a difference.
