We are fortunate enough to have Horsezone as one of the sponsors for our Mount George Pony project.

We were called to a property in Maitland on November 14th 2012. It was reported there was a pony in a paddock who could not walk and had been abandoned by her owners. What we found was disgraceful.

Ruby & Jewel

Ruby and Jewel were at the Maitland Sale yards on November 8th 2012. Jewell reached out to all of us by resting her head through the rails on our hands. As with most horses in the doggers pens she was miserable and distressed.

Titan is a beautiful Palomino Welsh pony gelding. He is around 4yrs old and was unhandled when he arrived with us in late June 2012. He was also incredibly unwell with pneumonia.

Blue came through the Maitland Sale Yards on September 13th 2012. A 7yr old unregistered Arabian Pony stallion in very poor condition. You could count most of the bones in this little guys body. He rested quietly in the corner of the yard and sought comfort close to where we stood at the rails.

We purchased Koda from the doggers as a 9mth old colt with one retained testicle. He was in very poor shape when he arrived, unhandled and very frightened.

Fiesta is a 5yr old Quarter Horse Mare with a wonderful gentle nature. She came to us chronically lame with a series of hoof abscesses.

Heather came to us at the same time as Lance. You can see the terrible condition she was in when she arrived. What you can’t see is that she had a newborn foal on her as well.

Lance was an aged and very ill pony when we took delivery of him. This pony had been shown all over the countryside very successfully in his day. Without the appropriate nutrition and medical aids he would never have survived.

Fred Brown

Fred was surrendered with Romany. They were the only remaining paddock mates after all others had been sent to the doggers some months before. Fred was not suffering any amount of weight loss!!!
