RESCUE CENTRE’S BUNDLE OF JOY
MUM, DELILAH & BABY DOING WELL
This stunning newborn baby boy finally arrived to Delilah at 1.00am in the morning on 17 May, after many weeks of waiting and a very fraught 24 hours for Sue and Rod Weeding who were with Delilah when she gave birth.
Problems ensued initially when the little foal failed to get to her feet and Rod and Sue were in contact throughout the night with Centre vet Dorothea who was eventually called out to the Centre to check over mother and baby. With Rod and Sue's determination and Dorothea's expertise mum and baby recovered well; just look at this beautiful little boy 12 hours later.
Delilah aged around 10 arrived at the Centre in a sorry state in September of last year, with a very bad eye infection and malnourished. She settled in quickly after receiving the correct nutritious food, treatment for her eyes and tender loving care.
A name was chosen for Delilah's baby when Georgie May, local celebrity, model and representative of the centre noticed that the little foal had an unusual mark on his head. Georgie May said "It is a miracle that this beautiful foal was born into the world after his mother's traumatic experiences. Through the centre's amazing work in rescuing his mother, Harry is alive and well. Although from the moment I saw the new born foal at the Easy Horse Care Rescue Centre I immediately noticed something very special about him. Unlike most horses this little foal had an obvious white marking on his head, in the shape of a lightening bolt. With others at the centre also noticing the mark it could not be ignored as to what his name should be. Possibly Harry Potter? Or even better, Harry Trotter! The centre's newest celebrity, little Harry Trotter can be seen at the centre on their open days on Wednesdays and Saturday from 1.00 to 4.00!" Delicious hot food and home made cakes available.
A Spanish TV company has become involved at the EHCRC after visiting the Centre to welcome Faith home, the little horse that recently underwent an amputation and received a prosthetic limb in Barcelona. The TV Company were so impressed with the work and dedication of Rod, Sue and the volunteers of the Centre that they are due to film a television series about each horses' individual stories and how they became resident at the Centre.
