Gili Island Rubbish collecting horses get the thumbs up!
Great news- Delphine Robb and Sarah Best who live and work on the island report that Bert, Oscar, Cream, Dennis, Yahyah, Rohit, Rainbow, Mamba and Andy are in good shape.
Delphine makes sure the rubbish horses are getting fed and looked after, and the results are showing.
Recently all the rubbish collecting horses had their hooves trimmed by volunteer farrier Christopher Beggs from Kelvin Grove Equine in Perth, WA. Bert received the royal treatment by having shoes fitted [ the poor fella has flat feet].
Only one horse has an abscess in his foot but this is being treated.
As you can see, all the horses are looking great and significantly better than 12 months ago.
Thanks to all our donors and supporters who have played a big part in improving the welfare and condition of these 9 horses - makes all our hard work worth it.
