One horse in South Auckland has already died as a result of fireworks and many others will suffer dreadful injuries in the coming days and weeks. Our therapy horses are very precious to the children who work with them and we go to great lengths to protect them from injury, but a herd of spooked horses is not easily contained. Last year a horse in the neighbourhood sustained an horrific injury which cost her owner many thousands of dollars to treat, and she is permanently damaged (see photo). Please remember that one person's fun is another's total nightmare, and be considerate where animals living outside are concerned. Thank you.
