Horses Caught in Bushfires

Rural properties with paddocks and paddock fencing have been razed to the ground and it's reported that there are literally HUNDREDS of horses roaming around the outskirts of the devastated areas-and they're the lucky ones. Horses are stressed & dehydrated, some carry injuries ranging from minor scrapes and burns, through to those requiring surgery as a result of their injuries.

Many horses just can't even be caught so that they can be helped for lack of the right gear!
