Simba’s owner and his wife are the only ones who work with him as Simba helps his owner make a living so he can provide for his family. Simba is always well fed, never overloaded and is always treated with love, kindness and care, like one of the family! We have never received a complaint about him!
So, when we received the call on 26 December that Simba was not feeling well, everyone was incredibly worried, as Simba rarely got sick. Our Inspectors monitored him very closely, but when we saw no improvement, we trucked Simba to Blue Cross Veterinary Hospital in Newlands. His owner was beside himself and could not sleep knowing Simba was ill. Sasha, Simba’s best friend, was also not herself with Simba not being home.
Simba was suffering from Colic and we all prayed he would pull through. With first class treatment, after three days, Simba was happy and healthy to be sent back home.
Simba and Sasha have the most incredible bond and relationship of any dog and cart horse we have known on the Cape Flats.
