Harry the Horse

Harry new logo

 My life began on 28 April 2013 at the TBA National Yearling Sale. I was just a mascot at the Highveld Horse Care Unit stand until someone wanted to buy me. TBA offered to auction me to the highest bidder, and the money raised would go to the Highveld Horse Care Unit. I was bought for R6 500 by the Cape Thoroughbred Sale.

My home is at Cape Thoroughbred Sales, I have my own Facebook Page “Harry The Horse”.  I go to auctions and look for sponsors to events all in the aid of charity.   After an auction or a sponsorship my kids go and live with the sponsor. I even get dressed in their corporate colours.

Harry The Horse has just joined the Coastal Horse Care Unit and hopes to raise some funds and awareness in Natal. The money raised in the Harry The Horse Campaign will be used for Horse Care Unit special projects. Once a project has been decided on, the sponsors will be contacted to be involved in making a difference to the many lives of horses and donkeys.

Caring for equines is a costly operation, as any horse owner knows! It costs us over a thousand ZA Rand a month to keep one horse at the Unit. It is not possible for us to keep horses on a permanent basis - we would love to be a retirement center - but we have to spend our precious funds where they are needed most, and that is to bring in needy cases, rehabilitate, and re- home!
We cannot do this without your donations.
