Maggie May was bought from the knackery on kill day. She was due to be killed that very day and we sent one of our awesome volunteers up to pick her up. She had just had a foal taken from her and was showing signs of not being handled at all however the ladies got her on the float and home safely. She is settling in well and we will allow her time to settle and heal her body before we do to much with her. Will keep you all posted on her progress.
On the 18th of Jan 2013 we opened a brand new Gold Coast Care Facility in Guanaba where we now have 9 horses in Rehabilitation. We have 6 stables and 10 acres with a work arena and its perfect for rehabilitating rescue horses. On the 26th of Jan we were effected by the floods and lost some fencing due to flood water and fallen trees but finally we are back up and running. This new property is also where the SAHA HQ office will be based and we provide 24/7 care on this property to critically sick horses. We are always in need of donations to help keep us going and urge people to commit to donating just $2 per week. That's only $8 per month which will help us more than you know. We still also have our other care facilities open in SEQ and are hoping to expand into other parts of Australia. We need ongoing donations to achieve the dream we have of saving hundreds of horses all over Australia each year. Currently we are rescuing around 50 per year just in SEQ.
Please set up your direct debit with your Internet banking today and don't forget to email us with your details for the receipts. firstname.lastname@example.org

Bommer was surrendered after being abandoned on a property near gatton, he is a stock horse but sadly keeps coming up lame. At the moment he is under the care of specialists at Scenic Rim Equine Hospital as he is in foster care in Beaudesert and Ill post more details on his issues when we can establish them. He is only 9 years old and a beautiful boy.
Over the Christmas break it was brought to my attention that two beautiful young horses were at the knackery and in line to be slaughtered. I made a few calls and with some help from our amazing volunteers we arranged to have them picked up. Both horses were purchased for $100 and sight unseen but on arrival at the Gold Coast care facility it was obvious that the yearling had all kinds of problems. I was told he had stifle lock but sadly his stifle was badly broken and had been for quite some time. He was chronically club footed as well to the point that he would fall forward and to fix that problem he would have required surgery. There was no repairing his stifle so we had to make the hard decision to have him put to sleep. His name was Rayden and he will forever live on in our hearts.
Rayden's little mate is a beautiful 5ish month old foal named Archie and besides a large hernia he is a picture of good health. Its amazing what people send to the knackery. Archie is handled and halter broken and is having hernia surgery soon.
The Save a Horse Australia sanctuary was flood affected during the massive storm we had last week, due to this, we have to delay the drawing of our raffle. Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets, we apologize for the delay but we have a massive cleanup ahead of us and we will advise you all when the raffle will be drawn.
