Peanut – Newly Rescued.

Saturday’s work- a small pony wandering loose in Teulada no chip and with a damaged back leg. Looks like it was broken or the tendon snapped and it has been left to heal alone, with the hoof then very badly overgrown.
Welcome to APAC, Peanut you will stop being nervous soon and made to feel much more comfortable, J Jacobo Rodriguez is coming to trim your hoof today and a happy bright future is waiting for you ❤️❤️❤️

El trabajo del Sabado – hay un poni suelto por Teulada sin chip y una pierna dañada. Parece que o el hueso o el tendon este rota y se ha curado mal, sin asistencia medica. El casco tambien ha crecido muy malamente.

Bienvenida a APAC, Peanut. Pronto te sentirás mucho mejor y segura. J Jacobo Rodriguez vendrá a recortarte el casco y un futuro feliz y lleno de cariño te espera ❤️❤️❤️

Please don’t drive past a horse and beep, it is terrifying for the horse and dangerous for the person in charge.

Mare & Pony in Distress in Gandia

A busy weekend for APAC Caballos Rescue Horses removing a poor Mare & Pony from distress in the Gandia area, now newly arrived at the APAC Yard.
All the animals there including numerous dogs were badly neglected, with no vet treatment, very little food and no water in this appalling heat.

The Mare now named “Hope” has got terrible melanoma, a huge abscess on her neck and an infection in at least two of her feet, the pony (Mini Cooper) was a little better.

The local protectora have been taking care of them for approx 3 weeks and they actually look a little better in our pictures than they did when they were first denounced to Seprona.

If you see animals in distress we can’t emphasise the most important step of helping them is FIRST make a DENUNCIA to Seprona in this way the local Protectora can help the animal.

Un fin de semana muy ocupado para APAC quienes han estado rescatando una yegua y un poni por el area de Gandía, ahora son recién llegados en el campo de APAC.
Todos los animales que estaban allí, incluyendo a varios perros, estaban en condiciones horribles, sin tratamiento veterinaria, poca comida y sin agua con la calor que hace.
La yegua se llama “Hope” sufre con un caso terrible de melanoma, un absceso gigante en su cuello y al menos dos de sus cascos están infectados. El poni (Mini Cooper) estaba un poco mejor.
La protectora local han estado cuidando de ellos durante unos 3 semanas y están mejor que como cuando habían sido denunciados a Sepona.
Si veis a animales abusados, no podemos subrayar bastante que El Paso más importante para ayudarlos es hacer una denuncia a Seprona y así las protectoras pueden ayudar a los animales.

Please Do Not Feed The Horses!!!

Please Do Not Feed Other People’s Horses!!!

This is Pedro – he has had a hard life, clearly not rideable although in the past he has sadly.
He has had a terrible week of colic almost like being poisoned last week and lost approx 40 kilos due to people feeding our rescue horses old moldy bread over the fence. 4 other horses have also been colicky and unwell – we don’t need the vets bills, extra work and worry – please don’t feed horses you don’t have permission to   – ❤️

Lovely Sunday morning Breakfast for our rescue horses…..few dark clouds looming over Denia though. Stay dry everyone

Help Needed.

I am trying to raise 800 euros to buy a full wagon load of straw to help a man who has 46 horses and has fallen on hard times. He is a good honest person, and he himself will starve before he puts a mouthful of food in his mouth before these horses have been fed.

I desperately want to help all these poor animals and one wagon would give them enough food to eat well until the man can get himself together a little.

They are all for sale at reasonable offers, to help bring his numbers and food bill down, they are all lovely natured and very calm but due to a bad winter and lack of food are now not looking their best.

Could anyone help me to help him feed these horses and stop them starving to death? Any donation will help. Thank you Jxxx

Una protectora de la Xara que ha salvado a 200 caballos se queda sin terreno para sus equinos

El propietario del erial de 3.000 m2 que está junto a las cuadras lo cedió hace cinco años a la entidad, pero ahora quiere venderlo y le molestan los animales

Una protectora de la Xara que ha salvado a 200 caballos se queda sin terreno para sus equinos

Una protectora de la Xara que ha salvado a 200 caballos se queda sin terreno para sus equinos

Los animales también salieron malparados de la crisis. Muchos dueños de caballos y propietarios de hípicas que quebraron se afanaron en desprenderse de ellos. El problema de abandono hubiera sido brutal en la Marina Alta de no existir asociaciones como la protectora de la Xara Amigos del Caballo (Apac). Su presidenta, Lois Ford, explicó ayer a este diario que en los últimos años han acogido a más de doscientos caballos. «Incluso nos llegaban caballos que habían sufrido malos tratos. Ahora no es como en esos años. No hay tanto abandono. Fue una época muy complida», indicó Ford.

Pero ahora el problema es otro. La protectora disponía de unas instalaciones ideales. Tenía las cuadras junto a un descampado de más de 3.000 metros cuadrados, situado en la Punta de Benimaquia, a un paso del Montgó. Las cuadras sí son de Apac. Pero el terreno adyacente, donde los equinos campaban libres y los voluntarios acudían a cuidarlos, pertenecen a un vecino de Dénia. Los cedió hace años a la protectora, que los desbrozó, ya que eran un erial. Ese suelo está junto a la vía del tren y un barranco. Es agrícola. Carece de valor urbanístico.

«En ese trozo de campo, los caballos estaban libres y venían niños y personas con discapacidad a cuidarlos y hacer actividades», dijo la presidenta de Apac.

La relación con el dueño siempre fue excelente. Pero antes de Navidad instó a la protectora a que sacara del terreno a todos los caballos. Ford señaló que el propietario le comunicó que quería vender esos 3.000 m2 y que los animales le molestaban y daban mala imagen.

«A nosotros nos encantaría comprarlo», admitió la presidenta de la protectora. Tienen las cuadras y los cobertizos al lado. Todo indicaba que una parte y otra estaban condenados a entenderse. Además, ese pedazo de suelo agrícola tiene poca salida comercial. «Pero la cantidad que nos pide, 40.000 euros, es inasumible. Hemos iniciado una campaña de crowdfunding pero esa cifra no la vamos a pagar».

«Cuando nos cedió el terreno, estaba repleto de matorrales de dos metros. Lo limpiamos y acondicionamos. Lo hemos utilizado cuatro o cinco años. Espero que el propietario reconsidere su postura. Aunque lo tenga a la venta, nos podría dejar utilizarlo», apuntó.

La protectora se ha encontrado, de la noche a la mañana, sin sitio para sus equinos. No puede tenerlos todo el día en las cuadras. Los ha desperdigado por varios terrenos próximos, pero carecen de cobertizos. En días de frío y lluvia como el de ayer, los caballos no tienen donde cobijarse. «Ahora mismo tenemos 25 caballos. Diez están en la cuadra, otros dos en casa de una vecina, once en un campo cercano y otros dos en otro campo. Espero que esta situación se solucione pronto», dijo la presidenta de una protectora que, además de equinos, también acoge otros animales de granja como ovejas y cerdos que sus dueños abandonan.

«No podemos dejar tirado a ningún animal. Nos hemos encontrado de todo. Y hay animales que tienen historias preciosas. Tenemos una pareja de caballos, que uno es ciego; el otro lo acompaña siempre y lo lleva a todos lados», concluyó la presidenta de esta protectora.

Help The Horses Back To Their Field.

Sadly we have lost the field ajacent to the APAC Yard, in La Xara, Denia where our current 26 rescue horses are turned out, the owner would like to sell the field and while he is looking for a buyer has asked for the horses to be removed.

At the moment the herd of horses are spilt into 3 groups using different kindly donated fields of land around the area, although the horses are ok in this respect, it is a great struggle logistically having them all apart.

The problems we are maily seeing are horses who need more care and supervision are not getting the constant time they need, we dont see if they are eating correctly or being included in the herd or the older weaker ones being excluded from the group.
Feeding time is now very complicated as 3 plus times a day doing the rounds of three differnt places is time consuming and not an easy task, on the sadder side the food that was donated to us and now stored outside the fields are being stolen! Just unbelievable people stealing our hay but as the horses fields are not visible to us we cant monitor this problem.
The horses themsleves are missing all the attention they used to get from all of our volounteers and of course Lois.

We are trying to raise the money now to buy the field and bring the horses home all together again.
We hope you can support us in any way. Thank You x
