Success Stories

Manuka Boy


Manuka Boy presented at our clinic with a severe laceration last year while Jill Barton, our founder & CEO, was in Australia. The vets sutured the wound but by the time Jill returned to Egypt a few days later, the sutures had become infected. The horse was on systemic antibiotics but the wound had broken open and the prognosis became poor.

As luck would have it, Jill had returned to Egypt with 12 litres of antibacterial manuka honey donated by Manukalife. It was applied to Manuka Boy’s wound every day for the next 5 weeks.

Manuka Boy made a full recovery and returned home. An amazing outcome for this beautiful horse.

Holly was one of the first horses we ever rescued in Egypt.

When we found her, she was sick, distraught, and had been overworked almost to the point of death.

She had been dreadfully abused by her owner and had large wounds and abscesses all over her body.

Fortunately, she was eventually brought to us. Within weeks, her wounds were healing and she started gaining weight.

Her sweet and gentle nature emerged and she began the long process of learning to trust humans again.

Holly is now happy, safe and loved in our care.

Thankfully, it’s hard to recognise that she’s the same horse we found so many months ago!
