Horse Welfare Wrap Up October 2013

Here is our monthly wrap up of news articles and other posts related to horse welfare and equine rescue, in Australia and around the world. This month the NSW bushfires saw multiple horse rescues and other animal welfare organisations working hard to help fire affected people with their horses and other animals. An amazing effort by all involved. An aerial cull of wild horses at Lake Gregory began to much outcry from advocates of sustainable and humane wild horse management. The usual happy rehoming/adoption stories are included below, with the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust celebrating its 100th horse rehomed, as well as an article where Olympic medalists discuss thoroughbreds in eventing.
