Do you have links to these animal charities that you are working with? Would they have more literature on this matter? I am truely curious to know how supplying old snaffles,bridles or girth sleeves is really going to make a difference? Or how giving extra feed would help...considering it would be something they are not used to, and could mess with their digestive system.
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.
Sorry for pointing it out, but I did see it as being valid. It DOES make you look like a scammer. Note: Why isn't your organized group trying to help rescues in the US, instead of abroad? Surely we (general we) could use the help as well. I do not understand why we so easily give helping hands to other nations first, before extending a helping hand to our own people.
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 =)
