New start for Disney

My page: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/disney

Hello, my name is Disney and I am one of the horses that had to be rescued from the Spindles Farm animal abuse case in 2008. When I was found I was severely underweight and suffering from a salmonella infection, as you can see from my photo.  Luckily the Horse Trust took me in at their retirement home at Speen Farm and after lots of love and care over 2 years I have almost doubled my weight and I am now a fit and healthy pony.

As I am only 5 years old I couldn't stay at Speen Farm forever, but the Horse Trust found me a fantastic new home with the Horse Rangers at Hampton Court and I moved here on 6 August 2010.  I am currently living at their paddocks and getting to know their other horses.

Unfortunately because I have never been ridden before it will take a number of months before I can be useful and work with all the children and young people here at HRA.  We are therefore needing to raise money to pay for my upkeep during this time and to buy me a new saddle and tack so that I can learn to work. 

Please donate any money you can spare to Horse Rangers to help give me this new start that I am so desperate to have.  You can donate on-line through Virgin Money Giving, donations will be quickly processed and passed to the Horse Rangers. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on HRA's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.

You may wish to organise your own fundraising event to support me and you could set up your own site on this website to get sponsorship too.

I really appreciate all your support to help me have a new and exciting life and promise that I will not let you down. 

Thank you for your generous support.

Love

Disney
