Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary

Winter Feed Appeal 2018

Many horses will die this winter without food. We can help them but we need your donations to help us buy the sheer volume of hay that is always required. We cannot afford to buy the lorry loads of hay to deliver out, without your support.

This is Daisy - pictured safe, warm and fed at Remus Horse Sanctuary - she is one of eight horses that we rescued in the summer of 2018. Two of those horses were left out in the heatwave with no food, water or shelter; two horses were kept in a cage, again with no food or water; and four stallions had been kept in closed dirty stables for two years... Can you picture the horror of that situation?

Sadly it's one that many, many horses experience and will die without our assistance. The cold winter months will make any situation worse and we will need to get food and water out to them regularly to avoid starvation and ultimately death. We will deliver lorry loads of hay to those horses that need it but it will set the Sanctuary back many thousands of pounds. We need your help to raise those funds.

At present, there are more than 7,000 horses at risk in the UK and the welfare crisis in this country continues to escalate year on year with little or no progress - when the mares foal, the problem doubles and so on and so forth each year.

The news regularly features horses that are victims of physical and mental abuse and we continue to receive calls daily throughout the year. Keeping an animal fed over winter will give it a chance to thrive into spring. Forage also helps a horse keep warm. Without the Sanctuary's help, many animals will die a slow, painful and unnecessary death. Please, help us to help them.

About the charity

Remus Horse Sanctuary provides rehabilitation and lifetime care for over 200 horses, ponies, donkeys, cows, sheep, goats and cats in Essex. We provide a safe environment for these animals that have been victims of physical and mental abuse, whether because of ignorance or malicious intent.
