A Visit from the Dentist

Time for a dental check-up. Thank you to our dentist Benita Thompson for her patience with our horses, most who haven’t seen a dentist in a long time (if ever.)

Henry was cool and calm as ever. This boy is no stranger to handling and took his dental visit in his stride, as he does with most thing. (pictured above)

Sally was a little nervous, understandably as she had never seen a dentist before coming into TREW’s care, but she had some work completed thanks to Benita’s patience.

Sophie was definitely due a dental visit and had some work done today.

TREW Gangster

Gangster is a 6 yr old Thoroughbred Gelding. Approx 15.1 – 15.2 hh.

While he does have a bit of a bossy nature, he does respect boundaries when being handled.

Gangster is suffering from the effects of long term neglected hooves. As a result, he has basically no heel on any of his hooves which has rendered him lame for a long time. Gangster has been attended to by our farrier who, over the course of several trims, will work on reshaping his hooves.

TREW Sophie

Sophie is a 10 year old Arabian Mare. She is approx. 14hh with a very gentle nature.

Currently this lovely little mare is suffering from multiple abscesses (note the right side of her face in the photo) as well as in multiple areas on her body. Her hooves are also bad due to years of neglect.

Since coming into TREWs care, Sophie has been visited by the farrier and has been given a lot of attention. Some of her abscesses are starting to heal and she is starting to do well.

Sally Update – September

Sally has new front feet and one trimmed back hoof. But she is really scared of strange men.

On the Friday our farrier managed to do her front feet but she wouldn’t let him handle her back legs. He came back again on the Sunday and we managed to get one of her back done with Rebecca holding it, but then she wouldn’t let us do the other back hoof which of course is the one with a big split up the middle.

Sally is totally relaxed when being handled by a female so we will have to get males to spend more time with her to help her understand that men can be kind too. She is definitely more comfortable and is happy to trot around now.

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.

Seeking a Home – Brewster

25yr old – 15 hh white Andy cross gelding can be ridden, quiet to handle, good to catch, good with farrier, has no vices – except sometimes he gets a bit grumpy when you put his rug on and may have pretend bite at you.
Hates bot flies with a passion. Great nature.

TREW Does not own Brewster, we are trying to help find him a home. Please contact us at equines@trew.org.au for more information.

Seeking a Home – Toby

15yrs 14hh full blood arab.
Can be ridden by an experienced rider only and due to a foot injury with a strap on his rug has a limp ( this happened before we got him and we brought cause next stop was the horse sales and possibly worse then), so if ridden if must be lightly.
He is a very kind & gentle horse and has no vices other than he has the arab nature of being scared of everything.
He is hard to catch in paddock so I leave his head stall on.

Punch – Rehomed

Punch is a 7 month old, Appy X TB colt.
Punch is a completely unspoilt youngster who carries himself beautifully. He is a bold, very athletic foal who seems to float over the ground.
I believe he would eventually be a lovely jumper or dressage horse.
It is estimated that Punch will reach 16-16.2 hh.

Punch is looking for an experienced home who can raise this youngster and give him a long term home.

27/07/2013 – Oscar Has Been Adopted

Oscar was delivered to his new home in Eildon today. As always this beautiful Thoroughbred floated very well during the couple of hours he was on board the float.

It was with no fuss that our boy met his new paddock mate Bullseye, who recently lost his aged paddock companion. There was no squealing or carry on between the two bay boys.

Oscar’s adopter has sent us some photos of the boys going for a hoon around her lovely property.

We wish Kate, Bullseye and Oscar all the best in their future together.
