Durham Region horse rescue – update

Six-month-old colt TImbit was a fast favourite among visitors to the now thriving rescued horses on Thursday. Barry and Marilyn Hogan donated a trailer-load of bedding for the animals who are now up for adoption.

A month ago the chestnut colt was so weak he had to be carried on to the truck.  But on Thursday, he was a horse of a different colour, racing around the paddock and nuzzling his way into visitors’ hearts.

“It’s a beautiful thing to see,” OSPCA Investigaor Debby Houghton said of Timbit, one of 13 recovering victims of neglect rescued from a Durham Region farm last month, “It just shows you what a bit of care and proper food and water can do.”

The horses and ponies, ranging in age from 6 months to 12 years, were introduced to prospective new owners at their foster home south of Newmarket on Thursday.  And Timbit soon became the star of the show, eating up all the love and attention dished out by a steady stream of admirers.

    Hopefully, there is more good news to this story, and that is for the owner to be formally charged and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
