November 3, 2011 – Buddy finds a new home at our donkey sanctuary

Buddy with rescue team.jpg
Today we rescued Buddy, a malnourished working horse with a hoof so badly overgrown, it could hardly walk. In our equine outreach programme we regularly come across such horses. Injured or sick, their owners leave them to fend for themselves. 10-year old Buddy worked in a brick factory for many years. After developing a hoof problem, he was left to graze in a nearby field.
By the time his owner handed him over to us, Buddy’s hoof was so badly overgrown, he could hardly walk.  At our sanctuary, the starving horse was fed and his hoof was trimmed.  Gentle Buddy showed his gratefulness by nudging his rescuers, Dr Sudeep, Santosh and Tek Bhandari.
