'but you posting that sappy drivel helps nothing.'
Have YOU done anything to help? I thought not-get down of your high horse.

Good luck wild horses, be careful over there it is still an area of great unrest even though Mubarak has been gone for almost a year now. I have enough trouble looking after my own horse so won't be donating but will be sending good thoughts. That second picture is horrifying.

Side note: I think this is a country that realises it is time for a change, hence the uprising. Getting rid of a corrupt family (sons were prosecuted too) that was in power for 30 years was a step in the right direction. It will be a long hard journey for Egypt but I wish their citizens all the very best and hope that *one day* they may enjoy some of the freedoms that many of us take for granted.

I don't believe it should be up to other countries to prop them up on this path; it is something that Egypt should be planning to do on their own, organically, so that it is a long term solution rather than a quick fix. Not an easy task of course.

In regards to hating all people of a given race: All apples are fruit but not all fruit are apples. Some of the comments on here I found to be very close minded, but of course you are welcome to your opinion.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I know its horrific but its also something we as westerners cannot completly understand, we have the resources and education to know better, please remember this is a desert there is literally no food,or tack shops etc over there unless they have money to buy it. Also if you grow up seeing horses like this all the time you just think this is the norm, sad but true.
I have a bit of trouble believing that it is an (quote) "ogranised" group, that there would be more literature out there then just a facebook page.

On that note, I will not be helping out because of A) spelling and grammar from your posts, B) not enough literature, C) no point in a bandaid on what obviously needs a tourniquet and D) because there are people (and animals) that need help in my own country first.

Thank you, sarah, for saying this.
I agree wholeheartedly.


Wild horses, good luck on your journey. I, too, hope you can make some difference.
While I can not donate due to limited funds myself, I wish you the best.

Well said. I was wondering about the grammar too. ..

ok well for those of you who don't just want to criticise my spelling, to many years in the saddle and a public school education in a nation that can't spell has obviously taken its toll. However im not an idot and I have put alot of research into this, as guess what, I don't want to donate my valuable money into a band aid either.

Im not going to convince any of you who are already against this, so I wont try.

To those of you not totally negative and critical of the idea. We are working with small animal charities and egytian locals who are already trying to make a differance, but until now have not had the resources to tackle the horse problem, which has gotten increasingly worse with the political upheaval. This is something the people there can't prevent, if tourists don't come into the country they don't make money and therefore can't buy the horse feed. Remember they can't just put the horses out to pasture, there is none.

So if you had an old snaffle bit, plastic bridle, or a fleece girth sleeve, that's the kind of stuff, that would make a differance to the horses over there, giving them just a little bit of comfort in their day to day lives. To all the critics I completly realise this wont change the world, but like the starfish that gets thrown back into the water it will bring releif to that one creature.

Ps I've got the point about not making a differance loud and clear, so if you don't have anything constructive to say that hasnt been said please don't say anything at all.

just to note, theres been a lot of comments about scamming for money. If you read the original post, I never asked for any, just things like halters and medical equipment to take over. We are not giving anyone money, any money we raise goes into getting supplies to take over that we can use and distribute as we see fit, such as setting up feed station and treating wounds.

Hopefully these people will take full advantage of what we are doing! I would if it was happening in my town, wouldnt you, if someone turned up to feed and look after you horse, when you couldnt afford to?

P.s.s my spelling isnt actually that bad, most of it is just typo's from writing late at night quickly and without checking my work, but thanks for pointing it out =)
