Jeff the Horse

Pictured is Michael from Sunbeam (who grooms
Jeff the horse each week) with Alison from the Irish Horse Welfare Trust. The top picture is Jeff when he first arrived at the Trust.

Michael loves volunteering to work with these beautiful animals and his job-coach, John, brings him up to the stables located near Woodenbridge. His job is to groom their coats and manes.

The IHWT is a registered charity doing great work with rescued horses. This involves rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing.They currently house 90 ponies and horses. Some of them arrive in a dreadful state, having suffered abuse for years but with some diligent work from the staff they regain confidence and fitness.

If you would like to sponsor a horse or perhaps volunteer to help with the animals, even one morning per week, phone 0402 30773.
