Clip for a Cure!

clip photoClip a triangle for EGS this winter! Following the loss of Jasper, Storm and Spencer, Natalie Young, Rachel Mangto and friends came up with a novel idea to raise money and awareness of EGS. Simply clip a triangle onto your horse’s quarters and donate £3 by texting JSSF60 £3 to 70070. Finally post a photo to our Facebook or Twitter pages (or email to info@grasssickness.org.uk). They have already raised £816, let’s help them beat their target!

Strictly speaking we are looking for a way of preventing the disease rather than a cure, and the current vaccine trial is investigating the possibility of preventing the disease by vaccinating against Clostridium botulinum type C. Horses and ponies residing on premises where there has been a case of RGS in the past three years are invited to take part. For more information about the trial please contact Dr Jo Ireland on 01638 555399 or email equinegrasssickness@aht.org.uk
