Not all horses are given the best start to life, but the wonderful team at FNQ Foster Farms are putting their expertise and love into assisting in the rehabilitation and care of off-the-track thoroughbreds who are in desperate need of a second chance.
First established with one rescue horse named Charlie, founder Sue began her mission to create a safe haven for horses in need of care. Charlie was found abandoned at an agistment property with no owner able to be located.
He hadn’t seen another horse in 5 years and was taken in by Sue in an attempt to rehabilitate and bring him back to good health.
Charlie was just the beginning of an extraordinary venture undertaken by the team at FNQ Foster Farms. Today, there are 16 horses (plus a pig, lamb and goat) that have been taken under the loving wings of Sue, Chantelle and their volunteers.
The farm at FFF is made up of 5 paddocks, spanning across 10 acres.
With a property of this size and animals in need of care, we wanted to team up with Sue and Chantelle to give them an easier way to maintain healthy and clean pastures without the back-breaking work that chews into crucial rehabilitation time.
Sue has been maintaining a holistic health management approach with her land and paddocks in an aim to restore and maintain the land in a way that is ecologically, socially and economically focused.
With the integration of the Paddock Blade into their paddock maintenance, we hope to give Sue more time to focus on the preservation and restoration of
her paddocks, whilst also giving her more time to dedicate to her furry friends that require her ongoing care.
