So we’ve been to Briar Hill again and uncovered even more carcasses of Ireland’s forgotten. We’d been previously warned of the mad scurry of horse boxes in the area the past number of days, efforts to remove horses before we got the rest. 10 left behind on site now, presumably the ones they left run wild and weren’t able to catch. To think this place is right beside a racecourse and beside it Ireland’s forgotten Horses rotting in to the ground.
This site is the stuff of nightmares, those who we managed to rescue are so weak it is horrifying, heart breaking and disgusting. We’ve already lost two of the rescued souls.
To see a mother so weak trying to rear her rack of bones foal and to see her yearling trying to feed from her too is more than disturbing it is gut wrenching, a little mare who has known nothing only horror but is so kind. Animals starved within an inch of their lives.
Briar Hell 3 will be underway next week and we’ll need an army of people to get the remaining 10 off it. This area is between 30-40 acres and the horses untouched, many won’t know what a bucket is, many will not have had any handling. We’ll need man power, donations of feed, headcollars and of course financial support if we are to make any difference to the unfortunate animals in this hovel and stop it’s reoccurring
