Wish List Items

Hay And Grain
We are always in need of good quality hay and grain to feed our horses in need.

Horse Trailer
At the moment Defensa is limited on which horses it can rescue as we currently have no way of collecting those that are not within walking distance. Having a trailer would open up our rescue potential allowing us to pick up horses and safely transport them.

Horses need worming to prevent infestation of parasites, which can cause weight loss, colic and even death. The cost of wormers adds up over the year. Any wormers are greatly appreciated and go towards maintaining the health of our horses in need.
