It is with heavy hearts we bring you Maizies story.
On Friday evening,(20/09/13) Hungryhorse Outside received a phonecall regarding a little pony in distress. When Maizie was found, we were utterly horrified at her condition. Words alone are not sufficient to describe the misery of this little pony.
Imagine hitting your thumb with a hammer, imagine that pain continously, imagine trying to function with that pain in ALL your fingers.
That is only a glimpse of Maizie’s suffering. Poor Maizie is covered in lice and has a horrendous kidney infection, so severe when you touch her kidney area she kicks out in distress.
This pony has suffered for 20 + years, her owner insists her hooves were trimmed 6 MONTHS AGO. It’s organisations like Hungry Horse Outside,that are picking up the slack and the bills because of peoples ignorance and inhumanity.
We have had a vet’s report done and have administer pain killers to this little girl, she will receive a visit from a master farrier on Tuesday or Wednesday at the very latest who will also do an official report on her condition. Sadly combined these reports will seal this little girls fate.
In a bid to combat the problem of overbreeding of equines in Ireland Hungry Horse Outside enforces a strict castration policy.
It is prevalent that we do so as each stallion is capable of reproducing hundreds of unwanted horses/ponies/donkeys throughout the span of its lifetime. We would encourage anyone with a colt to please consider castration as an option. It not only alleviates unwanted breeding but also makes horses more homeable.
Since the beginning of 2013 Hungry Horse Outside have castrated 63 colts (a colossal figure), a huge but necessary expense.
Each colt costs on average €100 to geld. Please ,please start castrating your colts.
