Coal Yard Horses
Date: 25 March
The Society for Animals in Distress helps at risk animals living in impoverished communities of Gauteng. In 2004, the Coal Yard Project was started to improve the health of equines in Tembisa and Ivory Park. Since inception the number of working equines has been reduced from 360 to only 30 horses.
A specialised Equine Support Unit provides owners with veterinary care, improved harnessing and farriery. Weekly assistance is offered to the coal yard working horses in Thembisa and other equines and farm animals also receive assistance.
Many horses surrendered because of the Coal Yard Project now need new homes. The Diamonds from Dust programme rehabilitates these horses and sees them into secure homes.
