Rehomed

Una has now been rehomed with one of the people who helped us rescue her - Glenn

14.2 hh dapple grey mare

Una is a beautiful grey mare who was found trapped in railings and badly injured by a person walking their dog, who contacted Clondalkin Equine Club.  She was so exhausted from struggling to free herself and her injuries that she had given up. Una had sustained serious injuries to her legs which were badly cut by the steel railings.

She is a four year old, lovely draught look to her and a very kind temperament. She has learned to trust again.

Thankfully this lovely girl is now receiving the veterinary care she needs and is recovering well in the care of MLHR. We have great hopes for her future!

Una's Story

Una is a beautiful grey mare who was found trapped in railings and badly injured by a person walking their dog, who contacted Clondalkin Equine Club.  She was so exhausted from struggling to free herself  and her injuries that she had given up. The Club contacted MLHR and together we were able to free her from the railings. Poor Una had sustained serious injuries to her legs which were badly cut by the steel railings.

Una has cost us €2,000 as she had to have a number of operations. She is now recovering well but still getting treatment for wounds on her leg. She is a four year old, lovely draught look to her and a very kind temperament. She has learned to trust again. Once she is fully recovered she too will be looking for a home.

The poor horse was so stressed and scared. Damage could have been enormous only everyone got to the scene quickly. We called 8 vets, none of them could come and help. Vet Kevin McColl in Naas who rushed out to our rescue even though he was still in the middle of his clinic, we thank you so much for your help once again.

This kind of fencing is so dangerous for horses, one month and this is the second horse in the same area that this has happened to, god only knows how many are suffering and no one has found them.

We ask that you keep an eye out for animals that are left in fields like this, and if fencing is on the ground please clear it or get the council to fix it, its dangerous for animals and children.
