Sadly it is too late for little Quest, but with your help we can give others like him the best chance of not only surviving but of living long and happy lives. Eight week old colt Theodore, fondly known as Teddy, arrived at The Horse Trust on 25th October 2012. Teddy was found abandoned and alone. Life is tough enough for orphaned foals like Teddy, but he is also severely underweight and has an extremely high worm count. Despite round the clock care from the dedicated staff at The Horse Trust, Teddy's condition is so poor that he has had to be sent to the Intensive Care Unit at The Royal Veterinary College. Teddy's life hangs in the balance, but there is still hope for him.
In a year we spend around £50,000 on veterinary bills and medication, all donated by people just like you. Your support can help care for all of the 100 or so horses, ponies and donkeys we have here at Speen. Here are some examples of the kind of veterinary bills that your support helps pay for:
£6 pays for anti-inﬂammatory pain killer for three days for the 23 horses we have who need this treatment
£10 pays for the medication to rid a horse of leg mites and lice – Quest had this within two days of his arrival
£45 pays for a vet visit for a sick animal like Teddy
Every single horse we have at The Horse Trust has either been neglected before coming to us or is in old age and therefore in need of veterinary care.
We desperately need your help – even a gift of just £6 in Quest's memory will help.
If you can, please make a donation today in Quest's name to give Teddy and other like him the chance of a safe, secure future.
