12-year-old Oolgie the horse came into RSPCA care from Storybook Farm after being seized when our Inspectors identified alleged animal welfare concerns that needed to be addressed.
Oolgie was placed into foster care with Karen. From all reports, he had a very comfortable life with lots of food and treats. Karen said he was a cheeky boy that made big improvements during his time in care and was even a bit of a pick-pocket for carrot treats!
If you’d like to adopt a horse – there are plenty of horses that are looking for homes right now at the RSPCA, you can apply online to learn more and meet them!
Then came the day when Oolgie was able to find a new, forever home. That’s when he met Sharron and Kim.
Sharron and Kim visited Oolgie in foster care a few times and quickly a bond was formed. Sharron played with Oolgie while Kim gave him pats and treats. Soon Sharron began float training with Oolgie and to their surprise, he was pretty well behaved and the only thing he needed to work on was shifting over his bum so they could close the gate!
Oolgie was ready to start his adopted life with Sharron and Kim.
Once he arrived at his new home, Oolgie met his new paddock buddy – Rev, a rescue stock-horse with only one eye. He was very excited to see Oolgie!
Sharron and Kim said Oolgie has settled in really well. When the farrier came along, Oolgie was nothing but a gentleman.
Recently, Oolgie got a three-quarter bath. Both Oolgie and Rev needed one due to their love of rolling around in the dirt and having a great old time!
Oolgie couldn’t have asked for a better home, getting all the love and care he deserves.
