Update from Gili Islands on the Rubbish Collecting Ponies
Gili Island [ Indonesia] Rubbish collecting ponies are all doing well and new shower [for the horses] and septic tanks at the stables are now finished.
Delphine reports that everything is running well and getting better.The stables and septic tanks are now finished. The rubbish horses are now castrated except one, as he had only one testicle.
They are well fed, and soon we will be able to graze together, now that they are castrated.
We will bring you more news in 2018 on the rubbish collecting ponies and farrier program that AAA support on Gili Island.
See below some pics of some of the rubbish collecting ponies enjoying some down time in their renovated stables. Only 12 months ago they were in a terrible condition including the stable area where they were living. Look at them now!!
Before we go offline for the Christmas- January break I would just like to thank all our supporters, donors, Facebook followers, volunteers and friends for helping us reach and help more working animals around the globe...each year it is our mission to reach more animals that are sick, injured, abused or suffering. Since 2007 [10 years ago] we started with one project in Egypt, now we assist 24 programs in countries where animals are finding it the toughest to live and work.
We will be back on-line in later January and although we might not be visible we will be working hard behind the scenes planning and improving for 2018.
Best wishes to everyone for a safe, peaceful and happy Christmas-New Year period.
Janet and the Animal Aid Abroad team.
