October last year Pippa was awaiting cataract surgery after losing sight in both her eyes.  She successfully underwent surgery on one eye and, after a few months, was able to go back into the paddocks.  She loved her new life and found a boyfriend in Dickie!

Unfortunately, just 6 weeks ago, the retina in this same eye detached, once again plunging her into darkness.  “We were all devastated for her, as she had been enjoying her new life so much and it seemed so cruel to be snatched away from her”, says founder, Sue Burton.

The Animal Health Trust Ophthalmologists came immediately to see her and the decision was made to try surgery on her other eye.  This took place just 3 weeks ago and has been a total success.  Thankfully, Pippa coped wonderfully with this second operation, and is enjoying having her sight back again.  She now has a Lavage System fitted, which allows us to feed the eye drops directly into her eye without stressing her.  We need to do this for another 4 weeks because she can go back out into the paddocks.

Please can you help us raise the funds to pay for this operation that has given Pippa her sight back again?  We need to raise a total of £2,500 and currently only have £49, so we’re a long way short!

For those of you that don’t know her, Pippa came to Remus Horse Sanctuary about 4 years ago.  She is an 18-year-old TBxArab mare and had been used as a tease mare before coming to us when her owners could no longer care for her.

Please help us raise the funds for Pippa's operation; all it takes is a small donation.
