Sticky eyes, coughing, sneezing: little Roucky starts life with a big coryza!
Sirocco is a 22 year old horse, who has emphysema. He often has attacks, during which he coughs and has a lot of trouble breathing. It is therefore important to avoid contact with dust, which triggers his illness.
Sirocco has dermatitis. He needs a special blanket and a treatment, otherwise he has itching all over his body, and scratches until he bleeds!
Hay contains too much dust. So for Sirocco to continue to gain strength without risk, he would need a diet like pellets.
Humidified, they would allow him to fill up with vitamins on a daily basis. Perhaps such a high quality food would also help to soothe his skin problems.
Right now, the situation is complicated. We have a lot of rescues going on, and over 250 animals to manage. Many of the horses are old and sick. In view of the care and the number of animals, the donations are unfortunately not enough...
