Cash boost for horse charity


A HORSE charity in Co. Longford has been given €20,000 by Agricultur­e Minister Simon Coveney.

Until now Hungry Horse Outside, which rescues horses in the Midlands, received just €1,400 a year.

The money will go to the charity’s reducedrat­e castration project – many horse owners cannot pay vets’ fees. ‘We’ve never rescued as many mares with foals as this year,’ said the group’s founder Hilary Robinson.
