Coronavirus may be a universal crisis affecting every one of us, but the impact is as varied as each of our individual circumstances.
The fast-paced and changing nature of the pandemic means we are all coping with unprecedented levels of uncertainty and anticipation despite huge volumes of information made available all the time. As we rally round to find ways of caring for our horses, ponies and donkeys during these Government restrictions, we must remember to support each other where we can and have patience.
There is some fantastic advice already out there for those of us who care for horses to help us interpret the guidelines for our situation, whether you keep your horses at home or on a busy yard. There is also guidance from the British Equine Veterinary Association for vets and guidance for those managing Livery Yards and equine businesses. We’ve summarised some of these below.
Meanwhile we are still taking welfare enquiries via email and our welfare vets are operational in line with advice from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. We would, however, ask that in light of the pressures we face caring for our over 1,500 residents, you are patient with us regarding any welfare concerns that you raise with us at this time.
