"Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world. For, indeed, that's all who ever have." ~ Margaret Mead
Birth date: 2005 Arrival date: 20 January 2020
A bright new future awaits Lancelot. No malice lies in his past, but like so many other horses and ponies bought as companions for kids who have long since outgrown their interest for them, the forgotten souls are who ends up suffering as a result. Exacerbated by the drought and a lack of feed, Lancelot shares a story with so many horses across the country. Surrendered to the sanctuary in early January of 2020, he will now get the very best care to ensure they have only the brightest of futures.
Suffering from significant malnutrition, Lancelot arrived very underweight. As a result of his malnutrition he had a slight heart murmur from his body starting to break down the muscle in his system. Having not had his teeth or feet done for some time, Lancelot had also developed painful hooks on his teeth, and he has an old shoulder injury that we are still looking into.
Despite all of this, Lancelot is a gentle, friendly soul. We look forward to getting this older gentleman back into much better health. You can support his journey by becoming his sponsor.
Help Protect Horses
Horses are majestic, powerful yet incredibly sensitive animals. Sadly they are also some of the most frequently neglected and discarded of animals. The Australian racing industry sends over 10,000 horses to their deaths each year, they are used in rodeos and to pull carts for tourists.
When you sponsor a Little Oak horse you will be helping protect horses. Your sponsorship will support Little Oak's essential advocacy work – sharing the stories of individual horses and the plight of their kind across the nation.
Sponsor today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about horses through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly sponsors. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for the horses at Little Oak, and their kind across Australia.
