A Special Thanks to our Corporate Supporters

The successful placement of so many horses this year could not have been possible without the support of many people, including many corporate entities.

We would like to thank the following:

  • TV3
  • TV1
  • Bayer NZ Ltd
  • Bomac Laboratories Ltd
  • Aniwell Filta Bac
  • Department of Conservation

The above organisations helped us with television coverage, pour on wormer, oral wormer, transport and advertising subsidies.

They made a great difference to the outcome.

May this be a reminder to always have bolt cutters on hand when owning horses!

The vet sedated him so she could get a close look at his injuries and decided to  bandage his leg. Tane freaked out about the bandage attached to him and had to be sedated again to have it taken off!
