We have an African Horse Sickness outbreak 45km's from the centre, if your interest lies with research maybe you could help. We sold a magnificent Percheron stallion two years ago he went to Kei Mouth and died on the 4th of Jan, they are loosing lots of good horses in the area and can't do anything about it, if you think it's worth while contact me. We've lost two horses in the last week waiting for lab results of blood tests. Come help with 42 horses at a well known SA Rehab Centre we desperately need an equine dentist and a farrier for the rest of the year, work for a week and join us for a week of fun. If you're English it's called a 'busmans holiday'!!! If you're qualified in any of these professions you can really help our horses and at the same time visit our beautiful country. Don't expect to find a surgery or anything elaborate we work on the basics, we're just two girls trying to make a difference to the animal abuse in this country. We have 'Horses working for Horses' what we rescue and rehab here works for the less fortunate doing beach trails go to our website for more details. We really need your help for 'all creatures great and small' especially now!!!.
