The Equine Grass Sickness Fund

The Moredun Foundation Equine Grass Sickness Fund is the only registered charity in the UK raising funds specifically for research into grass sickness.

EGSF is dedicated to supporting and advancing research into grass sickness and further improving the treatment of grass sickness.

Grass Sickness remains a major cause of mortality in horses and ponies in Britain with more than 95% of cases proving fatal.

A number of chronic cases do survive with specialised intensive nursing and many have gone on to live a full working life.
