A BAHRAINI who owns one of the largest stables in the country has described how a group of volunteers helped save a horse that suffered severe burn injuries.
Osama Al Haram, who owns the Al Maha Stables in Shakura, said it was because of joint efforts by him and volunteers that they saved 18-year-old Twister.
The GDN reported yesterday that Twister had sustained second degree burns after getting away and ending up on a pile of burning manure.
“We did not realise how severe the burn injuries were, because the skin did not peel off them,” said Mr Al Haram.
“It was on the second day we declared an emergency and took personal action led by Jerri Taylor and others in our stable to help Twister.”
Mr Al Haram said they had received a lot of support from volunteers who wanted to help.
“Everyone went out of their way to help Twister,” he said.
“I went out to buy saline and even checked his temperature to ensure he was in good care. We rescued Twister and are glad that he is now recovering.
“Accidents do happen in big stables, but we are glad there is a team of animal lovers in Bahrain who are always ready to help.”
Ms Taylor said they continued to look after Twister and were spending BD60 to BD100 daily, including a daily visit by a vet.
“We are using Forever Living aloe products that have helped in Twister’s recovery,” she said.
“Bahrain stable owners take great pride in their horses.”
