Banned owner loses final appeal over horses
A BANNED horse owner has lost a final appeal to keep the neglected animals, guaranteeing them a secure future.  
Redwings Horse Sanctuary took on 14 horses following a large rescue of 49 equines from North East Wales in December 2007.  
These animals have now finally been signed over into the permanent ownership of the charity, following several appeals by the prosecuted owner. The horses had been found by the RSPCA very underweight, with a bad worm infestation and crammed into overcrowded stables at a site in Penycae.

Honour for new professor
A NEW Equine Professorship has been announced in honour of the career of the thoroughbred Alborada.  
James Wood has been named the Alborada Professor of Equine and Farm Animal Science by the Alborada Trust - named after the well known race mare. 
Alborada, bred and raced by Kirsten Rausing, won the Newmarket Champion Stakes twice and was officially rated the Champion Three-Year-Old Filly in the World in 1998. 
The Trust's aims include the funding of veterinary causes in the UK, including research into the causes behind infectious diseases and their treatment.
