Cavallo came to us in very poor condition. This boy came into care in an emaciated state and suffering some respiratory problems. Blood tests confirmed that he was running infection through his body, anaemic and dehydrated. His internal organs were suffering from the effects of emaciation. Cavallo had to be fed small, regular feeds to gradually build up his weight. Feeding an emaciated horse too quickly can be fatal. He was also under intensive vet care and received around the clock attention from our Gold Coast volunteers.
For the first time, SAHA auctioned off the naming rights and Samantha Marshall had the honour of naming this horse “Cavallo”. Cavallo is DEAD quiet. He is a real gentleman in every single way.
