TREW Sally – Adopted

Sally has found her forever home with TREW Secretary Rebecca. Since being coming into Rebecca’s care, Sally has progressed in leaps and bounds. It has taken a long time and a lot of work to get her hoves in good condition. Sally is super friendly and loves to have a hoon in the paddock.

Thank you Rebecca for adopting Sally. We all look forward to following her progress in the future.

TREW Sophie – Adopted

TREW Sophie, the cute Arabian mare that came into our care with TREW Gangster has found a home with a family.
She is much loved and has fitted into her new home very well. This little mare loves attention and just wants to be involved with anything that is going on. Sophie stands quietly at the edge of the arena while her paddock mate is ridden, supervising everyone around her.

Thank you to her new family for offering this lovely little mare such a great home.

Farewell Mac

TREW Mac

It is with much sadness that we share the news that TREW Mac has passed over the rainbow bridge aged 25. The spunky grey gelding was adopted 5 years ago where he was a much loved riding horse before enjoying retirement and lots of attention. Due to arthritis which was no longer manageable we said good bye to Mac last month before winter’s cold set in.

TREW Henry – Available for Adoption

TREW Henry – Available for Adoption

TREW Henry has come a long way from the skin and bone horse that had his carers worried that he would not get up again every time he lay on the ground.

In the 15 months that Henry has been in TREW’s care, he has proven that he is a lovely boy, with good manners and a pleasant personality. Henry is well handled and is good to brush, feed and rug, though he would rather you did not mess around with his rug at dinner time.

At 12 years old, this thoroughbred is looking for a home where he will be part of the family. Henry does require hard feeding as he does windsuck. Henry is good in the paddock with other horses, he is not the boss in the paddock and gets along with the others well.

Henry will be float assessed before being adopted out as to date he has been transported by truck only.

As with all of TREWs horses, Henry will be adopted out on a lifetime lease.

If you have any questions about Henry or his adoption, please email TREW at equines@trew.org.au

Goodbye Rolls

blog-small-e1365743049465

It is with much sadness that we share the news that the lovely gelding TREW Rolls has passed over the rainbow bridge. Rolls suffered badly from arthritis and other joint complaints directly related to his racing career and his pain could no longer be managed.

Rolls was a beautiful old man who was lucky enough to live out his days on a property in Mildura with a family who loved him. Thank you Colleen for taking Rolls into your hearts and looking after him so well.

TREW Henry – Available for Sponsorship

Henry is currently undergoing continual treatment to address his many issues. Our first priority, other than feed, was to make him comfortable.

A delousing sessions and a couple of medicated sponge baths and you can tell he is much more at ease.

Eastern Regional Pet Expo – April 2012

On Sunday 1 April 2012 Knox City Council held its Annual Eastern Regional Pet Expo. The Expo was held at Knox Park Reserve on Ferntree Gully Road in Knox-field.

TREW was excited to have a stand at this great Expo. Our Education Unit was on display and we had a range of our merchandise on sale.

The aim of the Expo is to promote businesses, organisations and clubs at one event, incorporating all types of animals as pets, with the theme being “Responsible Pet Ownership”.

Craig “Huggy” Huggins from Gold 104.3 FM hosted the day and made his way around all the stands talking to the representatives.

Hope to see you at next year’s event. You may even win big in our luck dip (every ticket wins a prize!)

Seymour Alternative Farming Expo 2012

Triple R Equine Welfare attended the Seymour Alternative Farming Expo 2012 held from the 17th to 19th of February.

It was a good opportunity for us to be out in the community educating, informing and discussing a varied of topics and issues in relation to equine care and welfare. Our education stand, speakers, displays and information leaflets were all very well received.

TREW was thanked many times for the assistance which has been continually offered throughout the equine loving community and unfortunately, we were informed of a number of concerns which are now being investigated.

A special thank you to our newest supporters Discovery Floats and The Farm Store. In addition we would like to take this opportunity to welcome those new members who have recently joined our organization.

We would also like to thank Laucke Mills for a generous donation of their premium feeds at the completion of the expo.
